It's cool to see you've taken up Olympic lifting :)

Are you going to start listing the weights you lift? Or is it just technique work at the moment? Good luck with it all!

It's a combination of adding weight and learning the technique. My coach is of the philosophy, that whirling a stick or bar around isn't going to give you a feel of the lift, so we add weight slowly until flaws start to emerge, and then stay there till it's corrected :)

Haha, true though. The snatch is a ridiculously technical lift, so for the time being I'm going light and getting the kinks sorted out :)
