Hi CT, thanks again for the help…
I was wondering what you would think of adjusting the 915 program to incorporate snatch and full clean & jerk? My thoughts would be that the 4 core exercises would be snatch, C&J, deadlift and squat. ideally i want to do a cycle of 915 for all its benefits but continue to work on the strength of my oly lifts.
It wont work. First 5 reps at 80%+ is not a good idea on snatches, let alone clean & jerks. And the quick lifts don’t have the same progression speed as strength lifts because they are more dependant on speed and technique.[/quote]
thanks CT. would you consider using the 915 progression for deadlift and squat and then seperately work on the oly lifts? alternatively could you suggest a program that incoporates oly lifts that is designed for gaining size and weight?
