Now back to training to reach our next goals!

17 year old Dennis Tan Cleans and Jerks 160 kilos from Above the Knee on 9/7/16. This drill is used to increase Dennis’s speed under the bar and his ability to turnover his elbows faster in the Clean. We use this exercise also to predict within a range of what he is capable of doing from the floor. This places him within 10-15 kilo of what he should be able to do from the floor. His best Clean and Jerk to date from the floor is 167 kilos. He has Cleaned 170 from low blocks and from the floor. The Youth American Record in the Clean and Jerk is 175 kilos. He is very close to tackling this Goal.
Youth Lifter Dennis Tan Clean and Jerks 167 kilos for a new record. He is training hard for the Youth World Weightlifting Championships in Malaysia.
