Also, I found that video taping my lifts, then immediately watching them off the camera helped me immensely in getting my form down and getting the weight up. I put 40 pounds on my max clean and jerk just through form!
Thanks, George. I have not read Greg's book, but from what I have read online about it, it sounds like a phenomenal read.
My form on the snatch and the clean and jerk could definitely use a lot of work. I will try to record myself during my next training session. Also, would you recommend attempting a 'heavy' snatch or clean and jerk sans bumper plates? The gym I attend does not have bumper plates, which makes it hard, nay impossible, to dump the bar if I had to dump the bar.
