I’ve been practicing the olympic lifts (clean, snatch and push-press). I don’t have any 1on1 teaching in them, all my knowledge comes from here and a couple of other sites.
I practiced with that jump-shrug variation at first before practicing with just a bar.
The whole process before I was performing them with weights was about 3 weeks. I watched videos, read articles and practiced. Of course, I don’t have perfect or near perfect form, but I’ll probably get better with time.
Already, I’ve tested 1rm’s for the lifts without any problems or injury.
My question is, where does the danger lie? I’ve been performing them now with no supervision for about 4 weeks and no injuries, no problems.
