Well I won't be able to pull them w/o "jumping" so if I do that my floor is bound to go....

    If the floor aint bendin, you just pretendin

    LMAO, I was just thinking about doing ME cleans today... then remembered I might die if I do. Plus I tweaked my right mid back yesterday so I doubt I could pull that heavy.

    BTW, in regards to Osta, 2 weeks you'll be in PCT? WTH are you on now!? lol.

    I found wrapping my wrist before doing cleans offers a nice buffer to prevent and even allow continued healing of injuries to occur, plus it looks kind of bad ass

    with elbows parallel to the ground? This is the form I am working towards lol. I use the wraps on bench press. But recently I have had no joint pains.

    im on a lot of joint support though if you don't your joints will kill you.. hdrol just killed me with lethargy. My friends felt the same way on hdrol, but they also feel the same way about epi. But I feel good on epi, could be the stims Ive been using have been keeping the lethargy at bay also, hard to say. Either way, Im not complaining lol I'd go up to 80 mg but that's prob dumb at my size 60 is prob high as it is

    I was using IBE for the first few weeks but they didn't have any more in stock so I had to switch to havoc for the last few weeks. Both seemed to work the same they are interchangeable. Id go with havoc next time just cause its cheaper.

    Not sure, never videoed it, but anyone I trust who has observed me said my form is tight. I know I sure as hell don't just throw **** down after a rep lol.

    most oly lifters just drop the bar after lifting as they are only interested in the concentric portion of the lift. My elbow flexibility is too shot to keep that form with wrist warps... lol. I barely catch it correctly... I still can't front squat with that grip. My lowback/ ham strings are too tight. haha.

    Epi+ stims? When was the last time you had your BP checked? Taking any support sups to help keep it down ?

    I've done Mdrol with stims my friend. My BP does very well on cycle. I rarely go above 130/70.
    Off cycle I am around 100/55.

    I got pretty lucky with my current gym. One of the only local gyms that have bumper plates and condone the Oly lifts. It's going out of business sometime soon, so I'm considering just shelling out the money and building my own in my garage.

    my gym just made a bumper plate corner where we can do cleans and drop the weight. But the weights are larger than the standard weights we use on the barbells. is it normal for the bar to be higher off the ground when doing cleans?

    It's even bigger than the 45? my 20kg plate here in japan is made about 2inches or so longer in diameter. But as far as the 10kgs, and 5kgs they should all be the diameter so that the distance you have to pull the bar off the ground is the same regardless of weight (Provided there is weight on the bar)

    Yeah the 5, 10, 25, 45 etc are all the same size when comparing the bumper plate weights to eachother. But when you compare them to a normal weight that you put on a barbell, for like squats, they are larger than the standard 45 lb weight. Not sure exactly how much bigger tho maybe an few inches in diameter

    Just looked it up, a standard 45lb weight has a 17 3/4-in diameter and a standard Olympic bumper plate has a 17.72in(450mm) diameter

    that is very off then! I noticed this because someone was doing deadlifts with them.. they grabbed a standard 45 lb plate from the other squat racks. You could tell that the standard 45 lb plate was smaller because it didnt meet the ground like the bumper plate did. I'll have to ask the ppl at the gym about this
