After you saw him squat up to 260kg during his morning session, here is 19 year old Fares Elbakh’s (85kg junior world champ, Qatar, @mesohassona) afternoon session from the same day.
He arrived in a good mood, wanting to clean & jerk 210kg (his PR) during this session.
In the end his coach (his father), himself a three time olympian, called it a day after Fares made 200kg.
What followed were light snatches and a couple of assistance exercises for his back and shoulders, and me asking him a few questions.
His best numbers (as of june 2017):
- Snatch 162kg
- Clean & Jerk 210kg
- Back Squat 270kg
- Front Squat 230kg
- Clean Pull 255kg
