Here’s a video where my hand is fine (although the lift itself needs work). I have a lift at home on video where my palm hurts, I’ll try and post that tonight.
Any suggestions on the lift I posted though? The first thing I noticed is it’s more of a power clean and then a front squat (2 movements) vs. 1 fluid movement. Any form suggestions are appreciated.
In the hang position, you begin the movement with your arms bent, shrug your shoulders more and you have to work on triple extension.
But I would really suggest you find a qualified Olympic lifting coach to teach you proper technique. There’s a saying I believe that goes something like, if it takes you a 1000 times to learn something, it’ll take you 5000 times to unlearn it.
There’s a 3x USA Olympic lifting coach who trains by my house. I plan on seeing him next week to make sure I’m doing things correctly.[/quote]
I’ll work on your technique suggestions, thanks! I just lift for fun so I probably won’t seek a coach, but it’s a good option.
