Hey wsup guys, I just recently started olympic lifting as recommended by many of you guys on this site. Keep in mind that I’m 15 and looking to improve my overall athleticism.
What I’ve noticed so far:
Catch portion of cleans are by far the most difficult. I can easily pull about 135 to about just below chest but can only clean 115.
Balance is extremely important in these lifts.
They are extremely draining on the CNS. Although I felt great right after doing them, I felt shot the next day.
My question is, does anyone else feel tired the next day? And did anyone notice significant gains in vert and speed from them? Thanks
