May I ask a question Allen? How do you start the OHS, behind the neck push press, or do you snatch the weight? If you can I would stick to a snatch as long as possible. Seems to work better that way... If you can't snatch the weight, and if you have bumper plates, I would drop the bar, wait 30--60 seconds, clean/power clean it, place it in the rack, wait again 60--120 seconds and use a push press to lift it, if that makes sense. I tried all kind of variations during my OHS cycles and starting those 'snatchable' OHS weights with a snatch seem to work much better in my limited experience. Turns the exercise into sort of complex training, besides it is some good inbetween practice of the Oly lifts. Just something to consider...
