Lift Ratios

7 July 2013

We constantly remind you to record your numbers.  1RM max numbers to be exact.  We even provide a place to record them that is easily accessible to you at all times in the box.  All those numbers are related, you know.  They’re telling you important information about your progress, potential and technique. Take a look at the guide below and grab your calculator.

How do your numbers align?

How do your numbers align?

Don’t panic, you already know how to do this math.  Take your backsquat number and multiply it by .8o to get your C&J number.  Follow suit with the snatch.  When you compute the deadlift, take your backsquat number multiplied by 1.57.  Write these down.  If you don’t already have your 1RM numbers memorized, then check these computed numbers against your recorded numbers when you come to the box this week.  If you can already recognize congruence, great! If you find discord, begin to examine why. The answer will lie in technique.  However, WHAT exactly is wrong may not be obvious to you.  Come in, ask questions, and we’ll work on it with you.

Take control of your progress.  Know your present output and present potential.  Set realistic goals based on both. Most of all, get to know yourself as an athlete in order to sculpt your future in the sport.
