I'm still making good progress on my Olympic lifting and having a lot of fun. The two Olympic lifts (snatch and clean and jerk) are really technical if done correctly. So learning them is a bit like learning the golf swing. It's not something that happens overnight. It's the perfect "hobby" work for me this time of year.
My form totally sucks, but here are my most recent PR lifts. Even though my technique is poor (largely due to poor flexibility), I'm still pleased that I couldn't do an overhead squat with just a PVC pipe 6 months ago, so I'm definitely improving. I should probably be working on the clean and jerk (and front squat) before the snatch, since the clean and jerk technique is easier. I'll probably incorporate more of that this week.
