The Chinese team is in their final week of the 5-week seclusion training in Anhui.
This is a special training spot since everything from the air to the calmness is pristine and it usually produces large improvements in the male training team. This was the first year that the female team was also invited to come.
The male team members have all reached nearly their peak conditions. Long Qingquan attempted 171 but only cleaned it.
His snatch is up to 139 and he often attempts 170 clean and jerk (implying the he has yet to make one recently). In 4 more days, they will return to Beijing to keep training there.
