I'd like to see the video sometime soon.
Pound for pound, Olympic weightlifters have a greater level of speed-strength than any other class of athletes in all of sport.

I never heard of an overhead squat so I watched the vid. I gotta say thats crazy as hell, but impressive. It takes some balls to hold that over your head knowing it could crush your skull and paralyze or kill you. I dont know who invented that but i would not advocate continuing it. From your stats your pretty strong and have a good future in lifting. But this movement is dangerous and i dont see the benefits out weighing the risks. But your gonna do what you gotta do, just be careful and invest in a helmet.Originally Posted by crossfittb

Joeblow I hope you are taking the p1ss. 'Who invented it'? 'Stop doing it'? And my favourite 'wear a helmet'. Really? Cool story bro....

You should contact the IOC with your concerns and get them to scrap the snatch from weightlifting then on the grounds that you don't see the point in it

If your gonna do the snatch than start on the ground. It doesnt make sense to start from a rack. Walking around holding 340 over your head is not smart. If this is supposed to build the squat then just squat.Originally Posted by SemiBulimic

Sorry, not going to say anymore about what I think of your comments. Too stupid for words just about sums it up

No need to the only facts that matter is i dont do stupid **** like this and I can out squat, bench, and deadlift over 99% of the population. Enough said.Originally Posted by SemiBulimic

The purpose of the exercise is to IMPROVE the snatch lift. Go to a college or professional weight room and you will see numerous athletes doing OH squats. Its a great exercise with a lot of benefits that you don't reap by doing a regular back squat.
Again, the caveat is it takes moblity and strength, as well as good coaching of correct skill to perform.

Great numbers, keep at it. I like seeing young guys doing core lifts, a lot of younger lifters do not utilize powerlifting. Continue on your path, and stay focused. I only see your numbers rising, good luck. Keep us updated.
