while bulking to 170
too short broheim
I would only recommend doing them if you know someone that can help you out with them, and actually knows what they are doing. If you fuck up the form you are more prone to fucking up your body. Not worth it...
i'd really like to get into them as well but there is no coach or oly team here at UNF and i don't want to do it with bad form
Can anyone give me a rountine an olympic lifter would use?
good advice, i guess i'll stick to teh basics
When I was signing up at 24 hour fitness I asked if they had rubber bumper plates for olympic lifts.
The guy was like "I don't know what those are.... Umm, you can bounce these plates, they aren't completely metal so it'll be okay"
I was like
if you practice good form and get as much help as you can, then you'll reak the benefits
I threw hang cleans into my shoulder/trap workout, they're pretty sexy
yeah why the hell not...
so older brolies think it's ok
might ill work them into my routine
We start all our beginners with 3 sessions weekly, squatting (either back or front) each session and generally either doing both competition lifts in a session or one of the lifts and a pull. Usually 5-7 sets of 4-6 reps, with the first set or two being lighter weight, except for assistance exercises, where we use lower sets (~4) and higher reps. Ab work is done at the end of every session
A sample week might look like:
Bent over Rows.
This is just off the top of my head, as I don't have any of the beginner programs that the coach made on hand. Sometimes Power snatches and power cleans are used in place of squat snatches/cleans. There are other assistance exercises we use, just perhaps not every week. At the coaches discretion, after ~8 months we add an additional weekly session and eventually a fifth session.
