anyways the wrist is not supposed to be straight. self-learning weightlifting is a total bitch, especially if you don't know any proficient lifters or anything, much too easy to learn some shitty habits that become nigh impossible to correct.

I will consider getting a coach if I'm not making progress after a month or so.
It's quite humbling to go from having pretty respectable powerlifting numbers to actually realising I can't even do a single bodyweight +pvc bar overhead squat without the bar coming forward at the bottom.
I'm just going to shelve the ego for a while and work on the mobility as much as I can.
My self-made program looks like this:
Hang C&J 10x1-2
Hang snatch (replacing with overhead squat until I've got that down) 10x1-2
Front squat 5x5
Strict press/Push press/behind the neck push press 5x3
C&J (warming up with hang cleans from the hip to make sure my technique is good)
Snatch (again, overhead squats until I can do this right)
