Weightlifting Ratios Calculator: Identifying Weaknesses

While not an exact science, examination of the ratios of various weightlifting ratios can help a lifter identify what areas to focus on in their programming. For example, the suggested optimal ratio for the snatch compared to the clean and jerk is 0.78 – 0.83. If a lifter C&Js 100kg but only snatches 70, they would likely benefit from shifting program focus to addressing the relative weakness of their snatch.
