    I would only recommend doing them if you know someone that can help you out with them, and actually knows what they are doing. If you fuck up the form you are more prone to fucking up your body. Not worth it...

    When I was signing up at 24 hour fitness I asked if they had rubber bumper plates for olympic lifts.

    The guy was like "I don't know what those are.... Umm, you can bounce these plates, they aren't completely metal so it'll be okay"

    I was like :hsugh:

    We start all our beginners with 3 sessions weekly, squatting (either back or front) each session and generally either doing both competition lifts in a session or one of the lifts and a pull. Usually 5-7 sets of 4-6 reps, with the first set or two being lighter weight, except for assistance exercises, where we use lower sets (~4) and higher reps. Ab work is done at the end of every session

    A sample week might look like:

    M

    Snatch
    Snatch Pulls
    Power Jerk
    Front Squats
    Bench Press


    W

    Snatch Squats
    Snatch
    C&J
    Back squats
    OH Press


    F

    Goodmornings
    C&J
    Clean Pulls
    Front squats
    Bent over Rows.


    This is just off the top of my head, as I don't have any of the beginner programs that the coach made on hand. Sometimes Power snatches and power cleans are used in place of squat snatches/cleans. There are other assistance exercises we use, just perhaps not every week. At the coaches discretion, after ~8 months we add an additional weekly session and eventually a fifth session.
