    Hey Rip,

    how do I increase weight on my power cleans? I just put them in my program recently and started to work on my form and not bending my arms while cleaning. Nonetheless i feel like my Cleans are weak compared to my Deadlifts. Can you just increase the load by a certain amount of kgs per week? I couldn't find the answer in the book. I really enjoy doing those and wanna get stronger but i noticed they don't work like the other movements - they got ridiculously heavy just by increasing 2kgs.

    Thanks sir, stay healthy

    Greetings from vienna

    practical programming, there was an example by a former D1 student who executed the program with no problems and he increased the load by 5 lbs per workout, where he power cleaned. Well, unfortunately I can't do that and my power clean is not remarkable by any means - I power clean 70kgs for 5x3 but couldn't increase the load the next workout for a decent amount of time now. My deadlift is still going up every time i deadlift though. Would you switch to 5x2? What would you do sir?

    Use your brain: take smaller jumps.
