When I see elite Oly lifters it looks like they are bouncing out of the bottom. I can do this with a low bar back squat when my hamstrings are tight, but when doing a front squat i feel like I'm static in the bottom. Is there a common fix for this?

Question for Greg or anyone else,

Is there an ideal ratio of one's clean weight to DL weight? I maxed out at 400lbs on DL a couple of weeks ago, and last night for the CF WOD I maxed out at 225 for the clean. Is this a good ratio, or with improved clean technique should my clean weight be higher?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

If you're static/have no hamstring tension in the bottom, you're collapsing down there. Stay tight - just because you're going full depth doesn't mean you can release the tension on your muscles.

Eric -

Totally depends on what you're training for. If you're a weightlifter, you should expect your clean to be a much higher percentage of your deadlift; if you're a generalist or other athlete, you'll have a larger gap. So for the latter, you're OK. For a weightlifter, I'd want to see that clean a bit higher.

It's raining outside so I changed the 50m run to 3x50ft suicides. Not fun.
