Re: Front Squats
What is the added benefit of loading the weight in front anyway?

I'm not sure I'm following you. Is this it?
If it is, would I be correct in assuming he chopped his ROM off greatly?
Re: Power (Oly lifts) v. Strength (powerlifts)
I'm fairly certain I have the clean and snatch down now, but I would get a video for critique before using it them frequently. But you're right, I probably would want to build a better strength base before working with them.
But would working in the 6-8 rep range be all right for building strength? I figure I'd have an easier time getting my 8RM deadlift from 205 (guesstimate) to 280 than my 1RM deadlift from 280 (max) to 300, if prior experience is worth anything.
