    what would I have to do, just find a coach around here? everyone says don't try to pick the form up off the internet... but I don't go to college or anything and wouldn't know where to find someone to teach me.

    suggestions/comments/insults?

    I doubt they will mind if you show some genuine interest. If you feel like driving, there is a place in New Braunfels that has some lady who teaches. I forgot her name but she's well known.

    Hire a personal trainer at your gym. I've seen the ones at my gym teach these lifts and they teach them correctly. All of ours have degrees though...

    Also, the place I work out at has bumper plates and all that shiznit. It's in Seguin though, which requires more driving

    I am a student there, guests get in for 10$. The powerlifting team uses the room weekday afternoons but you could go in early and ask for help before they start up.

    I've never seen anyone but me and maybe 2 or 3 other people doing oly lifts -- even in the PL room.
