Re: ANOTHER POLL- power clean ratio/deadlift

Jeez, sorry for the multiple posts.. I'm all over the place.. But this seems to be the best answer to James's question:

"Strength developed at a slow rate of speed can only be effectively used slowly, but strength developed at a high rate of speed can be used at that high speed and at speeds slower than that." -from Rippetoe's Starting Strength page 171.

Re: ANOTHER POLL- power clean ratio/deadlift

Interesting comparing the two, I think a better poll might be max front squat vs. max clean. Once you get pretty good at cleaning weight (i.e. technique isn't your limiting factor), getting under the bar isn't the hardest part, it's standing up with it... well, for some people at least.

Re: ANOTHER POLL- power clean ratio/deadlift

Mine is about 56% PC to Deadlift.

OK, so it looks like CFers have a clean about 50-60% of their deadlift. NOW I want to know what the ratio is for specialized olympic lifers. Anyone have numbers?

Re: ANOTHER POLL- power clean ratio/deadlift

David,

I don't know about the ratio of cleans/deadlifts, but Glenn Pendlay posted in a thread a while back about the ratio between squats/cleans/snatches.

Here is the link, which is w/fs

http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=41541

Glenn gives his observations for Olympic lifters (post #3) and for other folks (post #13).

Enjoy!

My power clean is 54% of my DL.

My clean is 96% of my front squat.

Thanks Kevin.

Sometimes, after working my cleans, I'll load the bar up with 110-120% of max clean, then dl and jump straight armed as hard as I can a couple times.


Also, my pc# = fs#.

I'd also want to know power lifters' ratios, except their technique would probably hamper them big time.
