51 year-old male, started learning the snatch a couple of weeks ago; now also started learning the clean & jerk. I think I will be doing at least a little bit of one or the other every time I go to the gym for the time being: to get the technique ingrained, etc. I plan to keep some form of chinups or pullups in the rotation of “other exercises” that I do after the OLs, on the theory that full range-of-motion pulling is a basic body movement that I would rather not neglect.
Which of the following is likely to be less irritating for one’s (middle-aged) shoulder joints?
A) practice clean & jerk for a while, then do chinups
B) practice snatches for a while, then do chinups
C) bad idea for shoulder health to do OL and chinups in the same session
D) not predictable: individual experimentation required
