I formulated the question poorly, what I meant was if one should get strong and then do oly-lift or if the strength comes with the technique and training of oly-lifts.
Back squat: 3x5 50, last set got heavy, but it only feels like a form issue
Press 2x5 35
P. snatches up to 42.5. I tried to squat a little more when I catch the bar, went better. Form videos on saturday or sunday.
