    Sounds like you've got it covered. Concentrate on your own training, who cares what someone else does as long as your strength, balance, speed, agility and flexability all improve. 32kgs, impressive.

    Power jerk is so technical though. I could always bench press more than I could power clean, so I'm sure I could bench WAY more than I could power jerk. But I wasn't unproportional at all and never had strength issues in matches. My back was my strongest muscle, as it should be for wrestling. I think it all just depends on the wrestler.

    What are your opinions on deadlift/squat ratios? My physique doesn't allow me to do a completely correct full squat so I was never able to do weighted squats, I have a feeling that I can't build enough leg strength just from deadlift and bodyweight squats. I can't even get low enough for a one-legged squat even tough I've trained my hip flexibility for months.

    just wrestle more. i bet b. saitiev doesn't worry about his lifting porportions in order to wrestle. now if you just want to impress the ladies then, curls are for the girls.
    but then again, i may be retarded

    32kgs, that is impressive. i got the 36lb one, 18kg i guess. what is 32kgs like a small person. not bad for a kb snatch.

    Original k-bells are made in 3 weights, 16 kg (1 poud in russian), 24kg (1 1/2 poud) and 32 kg (2 poud), my favourite. They're really great for forearms and back muscles, sometimes I do killer sets of k-bell swings and rope climbs. My forearms go numb after 3 sets.

    Try doing your k-bell routine for time. I have the kids that I train do swings for an entire college match 7 minutes. You will have to use a lighter k-bell but the burn on our legs and lungs will be extremely beneficial. Also, do your santches for time. Cardio workout is second to none.

    Good idea. Something like: 2 minutes 24 kg, 30 sec rest, 2 minutes 20 kg, 30 sec rest, 2 minutes 16 kg, 30 sec rest? I'll try that next week, tough. I got a totally ripped callus from pullups
