Victor,

You might want to look into getting some Olympic shoes instead of using your regular running shoes. The Nike Romaleos II are great and will help with your form and will prevent injuries to your ankles.

Also, try to make sure you are using the correct type of bar that has at least a 10 needle point ball bearings. The bar should spin easily when you spin it. If you're just using the typical crappy bars that come in most gyms the weights will turn when you lift them and can torque your shoulders, especially on power snatches.

Pingson I think you have stepped up your game the last couple of days, lot's of improvement compared to earlier posts.
The lapel roll looks quite flat, same as I noticed on another of your 3 button jackets...Where they always shaped like that or did a dry cleaner press out the roll?

Arrived in the mail today. Excuse the shoes, rumpled legs and the mirror spots.

Thanks, I think most of the "improvement" is better quality photos shog[1].gif. I think all of the jackets the last few days, except for the three-piece, are true three-button jackets which I think are meant to roll less.

It was even more powerful a few months prior. I miss you, son.

I'll take a power snatch over the clean and jerk any day.

The price of a luxery brand and the quality do not meet. We pay their advertising, not their taylors. This is a Gucci jacket. It may have cost a thousand dollars or more. I bouhgt it cheap, under a hundered dollars. The fabric is nice and expensive. But the facturing? Probably made in a low cost factory somewhere in Asia. I do not want to pay 10 times the production cost just for a certain brand. I prefere real quality, i.e. before 1965

 

Concur as I was produced before 1965 myself!
