    Rip, a question to your o-lift podcast. You said someone who deadlifts 700 is stronger than some who clean and jerks 200. What about someone who rack pulls 1000? Are they stronger than the deadlifter and the o-lifter?

    Maybe. But remember that the ROM of a rack pull is shorter.

    If you can only deadlift 250 lbs. 200 lb clean will be real, real hard. A 250 lb clean just wonít happen. Ever! So if you can dead lift 700 lbs, a 200 lb clean will be easy and so will a 250 lb clean. A rack pull is an assistant exercise for deadís. If your loading up 1000lbs on it, your doing it wrong. Itís also only meant to help you hold your back in extension. Maybe help get the ass through to the finish. I have limited experience with cleans but can still clean and jerk 225 lbs with the worst form this side of ever.
