Sn:209x1x2 (missed 199 twice)

C&J: 253x1x2 (Missed 253 twice) I tried a wider grip on my clean and it didn't work to well. I hit my knees once, and fell back the other time. I think that the wider grip makes my rack position weak because of awkward elbow arm angle. On the other hand, a wider grip on my jerk made my receiving position a lot more stable.

FrSq: ...295x1 (PR) damn near ran out of juice.

Greg,

In your last answer to my grip width question you mentioned that you use a pretty wide grip on both your clean and jerks. Just to clarify, what is a wide grip and how do you tell if an athlete is using to wide of a grip?
I use a Ivanko olympic lifting bar with 3 bar marks on each side of the center knurling. When I clean I put my pointer finger on the first ring then I move my pinky to the second ring for jerks. As for Snatches, my pointer finger is on the third ring and wider and my wrist start to ache. Does these grip widths sound normal to you?

P.S. I use bar clips everytime I lift, that is why my posted weight is 1 pound heavier than the standard kilo weight.

Anyone know any coaches around Dayton, OH? I know Columbus has a weightlifting team and so does Cincinatti, and I may have to arrange a trip one of these coming weekends to get my form critiqued.
