Look into 5/3/1 to get some strength, if you get the book it tells yah where and how to add the Olympic lifts. If not, well look at this website:

Celorza's got some excellent overall advice for you. You may also want to consider the fact that Olympic lifts are incredibly dangerous without proper coaching, and throwing on more weight simply because you're "discouraged" at 145 pounds and your height is a recipe for disaster. Take your time, absorb as much info as you can regarding technique, and understand that power and strength are built over years of dedication and training.

Technique and execution, do you have someone coaching you?

I do have a class that I attend 3-4 times a week, I am verry concentrated on ensuring I have the correct form. On top of it I am trying to bulk up a bit.
Its just gets sad when there are smaller people than I who can lift more ha ha

I am a pretty experienced Olympic lifter. I was a collegiate decathlete and Olympic lifts are a staple in my routine. Let me tell you this: START OUT EXTREMELY HUMBLE, DO NOT BE SCARED OF LIGHT WEIGHTS, AND PERFECT YOUR FORM!!!! Once you perfect your form and learn to drop you butt down and get under the weight, the heavy weights will come. I suggest you start adding front squats to your routine and drop all the way A** to Grass. This will open up your hip flexibility. The next thing I would focus on is the raw powerclean. Start with the barbell on the floor, pull the weight up, get a good hip explosion and shrug, then drop under neath the weight and front squat it up. Start with light weight.

I do front squats. I love them. They hurt but they are increasing my flexibility like mad! I am very concerned with form so I don't lift heavier then I know I can handle. I want to be able to do these lifts but I want to be safe.
