Patience, good point. I definitely am weak in the overhead area. Currently these are my maxes (more than a sort of max less than a max max DJ TM noted) 120 / 140 / BS 250 + FS 200. Greg had written in a response to me that there is no need (for a competitive lifter) to be able to clean more than you can jerk or vice versa. My C and J has not gone up in 3 weeks as I haven't been able to jerk more. I wanted to make sure that my technique wasn't the limiting factor on the jerk as I am working on my strength.

Thanks for the replies. I have got to get out west for some coaching.
