I've just recently started focusing on Olympic lifting in the last couple of weeks. I've done power cleans before on and off but only in the last 2 weeks have I decided to do it properly after deciding to learn snatches and falling in love with the lift.
Prior to this my training revolved mainly around squats and overhead pressing for the last few months anyway; so quite a natural progression!
Current lifts are:
Sq 120 / 110x5
at 75kg bodyweight.
As yet I have never actually lifted on a platform! I taught myself the lifts in a commercial gym; however I am rectifying the situation as of this week. It is surprisingly hard to find somewhere to lift even in such a big city as London. Anywho found somewhere now and going down this week.
Here's a vid of me stacking it on a 40kg snatch. I seem to be able to easily power snatch the light weight and consistentently hit 55kg every time - though being less than 2 weeks in I know i shouldn't really be working around max too much. Any glaring technique tips? I seem to catch on my toes too much?
I have ordered some proper shoes and they're en route which I think is a big part of the problem.
I've set myself goals of a bodyweight Snatch & a 100kg C&J by the end of the year.
Thanks for any help guys
