    I'm stoked. :D I'll be updating in my blog....Friday I'll be tagging along to the gym with someone who is training to hopefully make 2012 US team and he'll be 'schooling' me in getting the basics of my clean and jerk form.

    :hehe:

    Thanks guys.

    And, I have thought of it! I will probably video it....
    although, it won't be anything too exciting...just me trying to get the correct form down, etc....

    Have fun.

    I wish there was an OL gym local. I'd like to learn some of the lifts properly myself.

    Workouts were AWESOME! I LOVED it!!!
    I trained with a 'friend' ;) at Gold's...he actually drags in his own bumper plates....

    So fun.


    I attempted to get Clean n Jerk technique down (sort of) Friday and Saturday learned a bit of the Snatch.

    We recorded Friday a bit (Saturday it was pouring down rain here and I didn't want to run back into the house to get the cam) and right now I'm waiting for my 'coach' :oops: to edit the nonsense parts and send me the part of me attempting my first C&J.

    I would really like to pursue this more... :lifter:
