Well, unless of course you want to be an olympic lifter. Then they are crucial!
I can't get near my knuckles anywhere near shoulders so it is challenging.

I am enjoying your knowledge of the Olympic lifts Mike. Learning a lot and hope you keep sharing more.

I was actually joking with my wife yesterday, wondering if they have Olympic lifting in the senior Olympics. I'm not too far away!

For what it's worth I do most things without reason. For fun.
