Benchmarks for Lifters
I was looking for any feedback on how to gauge skill/ability levels of Olympic Weightlifters.
Mark Rippetoe has a few benchmarks that he feels indicate a strong person - "a .75x bodyweight squat, a 2x bodyweight deadlift, and a .75x bodyweight press constitute a well-developed strength base"
Does anybody have any thoughts on equivalent measurements for the O-lifts? That is, what benchmarks relative to bodyweight should I set for beginner athletes? I am just growing my club so most of my athletes would be considered beginners so I thought setting out standards might be helpful for them as well as me as a coach.
Are there other benchmarks I should be using i.e. mobility, conditioning, other lifts, etc?
I'd appreciate any thoughts you might have.
You can use the Soviet classification system for some benchmarks, although that only addresses the total.
