While I have been lifting off and on for many years, only in the last 2 years or so I have made any real progress and I owe that mainly too T-Nation and doing the right lifts. Primarily I am refering to Dead Lifts, Squats and Pull Ups (I was already benching of course!).
While I have read a lot about other lifts including cleans I have never been that interested. A few months ago I worked out with a friend of mine and he wanted to do cleans, so we did. I really enjoyed the feeling and ended up dong a few work outs with them. I was able to clean 185 by the third week and was pretty excited. But then the next day my elbows hurt a lot. It took over a week for them to feel better and when I did cleans again they immediately started hurting. I ended up losing interest and getting involved in another program.
To sum it up, I am finishing up my current program in 2 weeks and looking ahead to what is next. I would like to incorporate cleans but having those elbow problems was miserable. Obviously it must be something I am doing wrong but I can’t figure it out. Any advice is appreciated.
