How's it going Charles?
I hope I didn't offend you yesterday with my "what are your best lifts" question? It was not my intention at all. In fact, I realize that a coach's effectiveness can't be completely judged by his lifting prowess. It was just a curiousity question. However, power cleaning 200+ for multiple reps and double bodyweight in the deadlift is nothing to sneeze about either.
- I want to compete in olympic lifting soon (maybe about a year) just locally for fun. I've never done anything like that before except just overhead squatting, power cleaning, power snatching etc in my regular workouts for fun. I'm 29 years old but am pretty athletic and have mostly played basketball up until this point.
What's the best way (without a coach) to learn the lifts in your opinion? I know it's possible (although not normally recommended I know I know) because Dan John did it.
I would GREATLY appreciate a few step by step suggestions. Thanks.
