If I wanted to begin learning/practicing the Olympic lifts, but have following space/equipment constraints, what can I do? The goal being to just learn/get proficient at the lifts, and also just for fitness reasons (in particular the power snatch, but also the front squat), not competition or performance. Equipment: Standard size/weight Olympic barbell (cheap, have only used it for deadlifting up to 300lb so far). Bushing sleeves (the plates do spin on them). 300lbs. iron plates - pairs of 45, 35, 25, 10, 2.5 and 2 pairs of 5 = 255lb of plates + 45lb bar. So they are not bumper plates/the kind that can be thrown down from the top of the snatch or jerk. Space: 3/4" particle board "platform" with a 3x3 "jigsaw" exercise mat (cut in half) on each side. No overhead clearance. I can get a kettlebell overhead fine because I have ~4" of clearance from my fist to the joist, but that is not enough for the plates sticking up beyond the hands/bar...at least not fast. I could position myself such that I can overhead press with the plates going between the joists, but that wouldn't be safe to do quickly like in a jerk or snatch. No squat rack: I'm limited to front squatting only what I can power clean/clean (the latter only as I get more proficient at the full clean). So other than deadlifting (which I already do), I believe I am limited to clean pull, power clean/clean, snatch pull, and front squat. No full snatch and no jerk/clean and jerk. Is jerking and snatching only possible with bumper plates (so it can be thrown down), or can one safely lower the bar from the overhead position? I could conceivably move my barbell and platform (such as it is) outside occasionally to practice without the overhead restriction... What are the loading, volume, and frequency parameters starting out? I'm thinking either Geoff Neupert's Top Set approach, or Mark Rifkind's Triple Progression, are most appropriate? The Olympic lifts practice would be one of the variety days of RoP. Thanks in advance!
