Oh, by all means give Olympic lifting a go if your looking for a challenge.
Especially if your bench, dead and m press are doing well. Cause Olympic lifting will blow you out of the water. There is very little explosion, flexibility, or coordination required for bench,dead and m press. But you will not olympic lift well without them,in additon to “strength”.
And just to push you a bit, i’ll ask in fun,"do you have the balls for it?"
Cause unlike the bench, dead or m press, there ain’t no spotters that can help you when your trying to clean and jerk double your bodyweight and you diving under the bar on the clean or snatch.
Its just you and the bar baby.
And if the lift doesn’t go well,
you gotta figure out how to get the hell out the way.
And one further push.
When you start,and realize it ain’t no walk in the park, go online for videos of the world’s best and watch what they throw up.
Not the guys, the girls. Little 116 lb Chinese girl puts 285 lbs over her head…with the cutest little smile to boot.
And a week ago a 17 year-old(guy)123 lb weakling cleaned and jerked 340 lbs.
Its some humbling shit.
Or you can just play it safe with slow and plotting bench, dead and m press.
