I want to start power lifting. I'm very weak, but my cardio is strong, I just need to start lifting right. The way I figure it, I should go with the Eclipse gym work out on a 3 day split. Monday/Wed/Friday with saturday and sunday rest/jogging. What I want to learn is proper form for: Bench pressing Squatting Standing Overhead Press Bent over Bar press Power Clean I watch the videos on form, but they are SOOOO complicated. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a monkey, but there's like 20 instructions for each movement. I'd rather get a base for it watching these videos but get it right in a gym. I don't want to trust trainers at a gym, for two reasons: I plan on training at school (Southwestern and then Mesa and hopefully State if I make it in) and they don't have trainers. I also wanna make friends in this area since I just moved here to Chula Vista and I'd rather get to know people that watch MMA events so I can find people to chill with that are into the same sport as me. To give you an idea of how small I am: I'm 5'7, about 137-140. My bench, if proper or not, barely touches 100 pounds. I used to curl a lot, but after reading these forums, I dropped curling from my routine. The only real pulling work out I do is chin ups or pull ups and those are usually mixed with my running routine. Because of how much time I have lacked in the gym, I've been doing burpees on 10x4 sets for a work out, using shadow boxing and jogging to keep my cardio up. I also do crunches during my burpee work out because I don't feel my abs getting a work out during the burpees. The burpees I do are push ups with the jump. Anyway, PM me if you're in the San Diego area, an experienced lifter and you're willing to teach some form for a 6 or a 12 pack of Newcastle.
