I'm really getting to the point where I don't care how expensive it is or how far I have to drive. I want to learn the olympic lifts. It's that simple. There is no sport in the world as cool as olympic lifting! Hands down! NO SPORT! I mean that!!! My old goal was to put up more weight in every exersize -literally- and then one day when I became "strong" move gently into the olympic lifts. But the thought of me jerking off several good years makes me cringe and I'd rather just get started now. I am capable of honest self-critique and self-motivation, but I'd rather not waste any unnecessary effort or time. I think some sort of instructor would be ideal.
I've been lifting regularly for about 16 months. That isn't counting the bench and bicep curls i called "working out" for a year when i was 15...
So now, does anyone know of any o-lift trainers or programs in eastern pennsylvania or New Jersey? I live about 150 miles from Philadelphia and 90 miles from New York City. Above I said I was "really getting to the point" where I didn't care how far I'd have to drive or how costly the instruction would be, and I mean that -within reason. I can't make a weekly thing out of driving to Pittsburg or Virginia or New Hampshire or whatever and pay out the ass to boot.
I'll dig up what I can, but any help I get from you guys would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
