Stefan Botev

250k Clean & Jerk

Botev’s pull to full extension is 0.67 seconds, his 3rd pull is 0.33 seconds for a 2:1 ratio. His jerk is 0.43 seconds to lock out. His jerk velocity is faster than the average of 0.5 seconds. 

320k Back Squat

The time standing up was 1.7 seconds which is equal to 285k in 1.0 second which is equivalent to a 245k clean & jerk. Botev’s WR was 251k. The equivalent back squat to 251k is 292k in 1.0 second, which means at the time Botev clean & jerked 250k, he was also capable of doing a 292k back squat in 1.0 second. 

​

Using formula 1a: Sq - [(t - 1) x 50] = eSq1

1.7 - 1.0 = .7 and .7 x 50 = 35k

320k - 35k = 285k back squat in 1.0 second

285k x .86 = 245k

​

It should be evident that without knowing the time in motion of the squat, the lifter or coach will not be able to correctly determine the ratio of clean & jerk to back squat.
