if its off topic you gotta make your own thread. Li Guy i did drop it but not before kind of bending backwards awkwardly, kinda put me off barbell c and j.
I guess that means you don't have the technique proper. You wold have be pulling the weight up and backwards a lot or you are trying to hoist the weight up the last few inches by arching your back?? Either way you should be dropping your body under the weight in a c&j, and it was tricky to time it and stuff for me.
I think its just technique practice that would help, at a light weight. I found 135lbs to be a good weight to practice as it was easy but still had a heavy "feel". I find it is hard to practice oly technique on a very light weight.
Has someone experimented with one hand snatchs and clean/jerks (or at least the pull action) using resistance bands? I remember seeing an article a long time ago on the subject (it was more a geocities personal page than an actual article from a magazine.) I can't find it anymore.
I've been experimenting with OH squats using resistance bands, which I find good and useful. But doing OH squats with them is one thing - doing explosive movements is quite another.
I would assume it's a safer way to train technique while still making it a challenge. But without any form documentation or annectodal evidence, it's just an assumption from my part.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
