I’ve recently taken upon the challenge of trying to teach myself the olympic lifts and have enjoyed it so much I’ve chosen to make it my basic training. Sadly enough I haven’t got the money to join a weightlifting club partly cause there aren’t any close and are very expensive. So I’m going to have to do it the hard way, but not impossible if I can believe most posts I’ve read.
So I’ve got a couple of questions:
When cleaning when im supposed to be dropping under the bar and dipping into a squat, instead of doing that I spread my legs at the moment I make sure I just squat down every time after it and slowly I’m getting a bit lower. Would this be fixed with practice? Any advice?
Weightliftings shoes expensive but are they really as good as they’re made up to be? Worth the money?
Any tips advice, great mobility exercises and/or articles you think I should know of I’d be very gratefull!
Thanks in advance!
