you are from PA, my coach told me about this guy. If I don't have
to travel for work *UGH* to exciting delaware, i'll tag along with
everyone and go to a meet in PA sun jan 28th? Not sure what club
it is, you might know. (pittsburgh barbell?) i don't remember.
I took tai chi and read a lot of chinese philosophy, tai chi texts,
and its funny because olympic lifts explode from the Tan Tien,
which is the point below your navel, the Tai Chi masters believe that is
the point where all power is concentrated. OL seems to have a
chinese way about it. When I was practicing clean&jerk
you 'sink' your Tan Tien (like in Tai Chi). Also OL transfers force
through the heel, tai chi talks a lot about that. If a Tai Chi master
learned OL he might have a big grin on his face throughout the lesson.
yeah i probably will be going to the arnold.
