I am no expert at this at all, but I spent about 3 months learning clean and jerk and snatch, then I went back to deadlifts and back squats.
One thing I noticed was the Oly lifting helped with pulling power from the floor during deadlift and power out the hole during a squat. Though this could of been me getting stronger or me getting better at pulling stuff.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
