Although my big 3 numbers are low currently, I love power lifting and would like to compete in the next year or two. That being said I have been dying to learn the olympic lifts for some time now, especially the clean and jerk and all its variations.
Do you think If i learn the olympic lifts and implement them into my current programming, that it will make a significant difference in my big 3 total? What I’m thinking is the explosive power I will build will make me stronger off the floor in my deadlifts, etc. But I am wondering if it would be much more optimal to just stick to the big 3 and its variations + isolation assistance (what I am currently doing).
Thanks for your time and the information you provide
