Oly training: 11-04-2013

Today was my second time training in the local olympic weightlifting club. I really like this, I feared that I would be given a broomstick for six months before advancing to a barbell but luckily they don’t do that – of course the weight is still puny while I work on my technique. The good news is that I seem to pretty quickly get the hang of the technique.

I borrowed some weightlifting shoes today and do they make a difference, I almost hit bottom in the snatch – I expect to hit it next time.

One area I have to really focus on is keeping my feet narrow since I have a tendency to spread my feet wide which prevents me from going down as deep as necessary.

I have to do get used to the massive volume that is used in weightlifting, as you can see from today’s workout there is a ton of sets, I recorded 14 sets but I may have done more as I didn’t write them down until the end and may have forgotten a set or two.
