Im new to the forums, so I figure I’d say HI!!!
I started Oly Lifting a few months back, about 4 to be precise. I really like Oly Lifting but I must admit I am not the most athletic when it comes to picking up really physical stuff quickly. I do ok but am no natural by any means. I dont have a ton of weight lifting experience either so this doesnt help matters greatly.
The gym I train at is actually an Oly Gym so this helps but the trainer there that is suppose to be training me doesnt seem too interested in me (or at least training me thoroughly). Every once in a while I will ask him to watch and critique a lift and he will only give one or two word answers like ‘More Shrug’ or ‘Faster Snatch’ then go and make a phone call for 15 min.
I just need some advice from people on what I should do? I havent made as much progress as I would have liked to in these 4 months and when I express this concern to my coach he tells me it takes time to get the technique right but I feel at the rate Im going I’ll be an old man by the time I get these lifts down.
Thanks in advance!!
