Any thoughts on how heavy we should go for the Chinese DB rows? Is it a percentage of barbell rows?

Jeff 2010-10-07
MS: 95# (66% of max snatch 145#)
OHS: 135# (69% of 195#)
stiff DL: 145#, 155#, 165#, 185#, 205#, 225# (40-62% of max DL 365#) I think I only did 3 of these reps correctly.

Chinese DB rows @ 45#
rope skips: ~120?, 98, 129

Rows felt like I was using too much arm and not enough back or scapular retraction. Must remember to keep elbow out to side rather than back.

Say you have someone with the goal of increasing C&J and Snatch to certain levels as a means of increasing explosive power for sport. Do you think the CA WOD is appropriate for a person who (1) has just completed a novice linear-progression powerlifting program (with regular power-cleaning and occasional snatching thrown in there) (2) is reasonably competent in the oly lifts but (3) has never done a true oly-focused program? Or do you think that faster progress would be made toward those goals if a beginner oly program were followed such as outlined in your book on olympic lifting?

Mike T:

I imagine these are similar to "kroc rows", and the thought is to go as heavy as possible. I've done then with DB weight of 40-50% of 1rm barbell row. At 15 reps, I imagine 50% would be a decent reference point.

HW - These workouts would be fine.
Greg Everett 2010-10-07
Mike/Brian - You will be able to go pretty heavy - 40-50% of 1RM BB row is a good starting range. I wouldn't equate them to directly with Krock rows, though, which are heavy to the point of allowing only a very partial ROM. These rows MUST be pulled to the absolute end range, even though there can be a bit of reaching with the body.

muscle snatch - 143 lb
OHS - 253 lb
SLDL - 264 lb

-muscle snatch feels comparatively weak. need to improve my 3rd pull.
Mike T. 2010-10-08
Muscle Snatch: 50
OHS: 80
SLDL: 80

Chinese Rows: 75#, Jump Rope -- 7 minutes? Rows were broken after the first set, I think I went too high with the weight.

Hip/Butt still sore but felt a little better after more stretching/rolling, etc.
