Olympic Lifts Check In
Which Olympic lifts or variations have you tried, successfully incorporated into a strength or muscle building workout, or didn't like so you set them aside?
I have tried power cleans. I used them frequently in 1986 when I first began lifting. When I revisited them a few years back I found that because of my bulk I could not hold the bar properly (my hands do not come anywhere near my chest or shoulders). This made the completion of the lift nearly unbearable so i set them aside. If I had access to Olympic plates I would try them again.
I have also tried hang cleans, but had the same issue.
Also, regarding power cleans they seem to stress my elbows in unusual ways. I was not sure if this was a form issue, or merely that my strength was allowing me to use more weight than I was ready to use.
