What do you guys think about doing power cleans / jerks and snatch barefoot? I never thought much of it - I started doing regular lifts like squat, deadlift, and press with no shoes probably a year ago and that has been great. I can get squats well below parallel, even at >1.5x body weight, and deadlifts feel very stable with feet in direct contact with the floor. So, since I don't own any shoes I like doing regular lifts in, when adding olympic lifts a few months back to my regular routine, I automatically started them barefoot too. Anyway one of the guys I see at my gym / lift with sometimes thinks I'm crazy and am gonna hurt my feet. (Most people who tell me I'm doing things wrong I just ignore but this guy actually knows stuff). My feet never hurt and don't get sore. On power clean days I do a total of probably 30-35 reps at work weight to practice form. So while they aren't super heavy yet (~1x bw), it's a decent amount of volume. Anyone else do barefoot oly lifts? Am I hurting myself without knowing it?
