I've been getting more and more interested in Oly lifting. I can't stop watching oly videos in awe at the elite's combination of power, strength, and grace. Really wish I learned it years ago. Among "strength" exercises, it seems to have more carry over to other sports as well, in particular striking combat sports, which is the background I come from. I don't have a coach so I've been watching a lot of youtube videos and imitating the movements with the bar at my gym, which is just a regular fitness gym that doesn't have bumper plates, much less an oly platform. For some reason they have an oly bar so I've been using that to practice and I have no real idea if I'm doing it right. I look at the mirror and use regular iron plates to practice the power variations of the movements. I power cleaned 60kg (yeah I'm a total noob) earlier this week which felt awesome. But without proper equipment and a coach, I feel severely limited. Can I get proficient at these movements just by watching videos? Where I live the only places that teach these movements are at dedicated gyms for Olympians which I obviously can't go to since I'm not an Olympian. And there are crossfit gyms... I am extremely skeptical of the level of instruction there, not to mention I am not sure I want to shell out money for a crossfit membership when I all I want is to just learn the two oly movements.
