Why does Josh Everett use the split clean? I'd heard that it was for a lack of flexibility, but it seems that an advanced athlete like him would have had a lot of time to gain complete ROM.
Greg Everett 2008-02-28
Derek -

Josh will likely answer directly here. Until then, yes, it's a lack of flexibility. If flexibility is limited past a certain threshold, an athlete will actually be able to lift more in a variation that in other athletes would limit weight. At the moment, though, Josh is using the squat styles again.

Is this supposed to be 'clapping push-up'. I really hope a clapping pull-up isn't what I think it is!
Greg Everett 2008-02-28
No typo there... although I have been known to make them. If you're not quite to a clapping pull-up, scale it. First step would simply be as aggressive of a kip as possible. Next would be just a quick separation of the hands from the bar at the top, and you'd progress by increasing the distance the hands leave the bar until you're able to clap. Keep in mind that eventually, it's quite possible to clap behind the back and do other party tricks with the kipping pull-up.

Behind the back? You're trying to kill someone, aren't you? :D

I tried that with push-ups some time ago. Fortunately, my lip healed up just fine.

Quick question, and if it's somewhere else on the website just lemme know. For the workouts with %'s of 1RM, when do you reassess your maxes? I know Saturdays are "max for the day", so if we hit a new 1RM do we base future %'s off of this?

Greg Everett 2008-02-29
Ben -

You reassess your maxes on any day you attempt a max. If those attempts fall short of your current best, use the higher number. If you make a new record, use that new max to calculate %s.
