Re: ATTN: People who taught them selves OLY

This is an excellent, very comprehensive source for self teaching the Oly lifts. You can even pick up a DVD they made that goes with the book if you are more of a visual learner. Very much worth the money.

1) Go with light weight and learn technique.
2) Go with light weight and learn technique. Then,
3) Go with light weight and learn technique."

Best advice right there. And, when you think the weight is light enough, make it just a bit lighter than that I tried learning on my own years ago and learned the hard way. Ultimately, when you do get the live instruction, you will be thrilled to have someone critiquing you. So often there are subtle nuances that we can't see ourselves missing or tiny bad habits that have a not so tiny effect on the lift. Wasn't until I had professional coaching that I realized I was doing a ton of things 90% right, and that wasn't good enough.

Good luck!
