If your training is not as specific then use both lifts for variation.
What program are you using these lifts in?
I don't have a specific program, and the only Oly lifts I do are power versions with dumbbells. Everything I am doing goes toward grappling with an eye on health and longevity, not being the next world champion. Specifically, this is a return to an old thread I started: . My left knee is killing most of the time now that I am doing a lot of grappling getting ready for a competition in March. So much time on my knees (insert joke here) and/or squatting down bugs my knees, so i don't like to work them more than I must for GPP.
