Adding in Some DB Work

hi, I train 4 days a week. My coach only has us doing snatch, cl&j, jerks, squats. I want to add in some db stuff for biceps, triceps, bench press. I know that it won’t really do anything for the oly lifts but it’s fun and I figure those are the upper body muscles that aren’t really worked. Any suggestions on when (can’t do them at the club because we don’t have the equipment), volume, exercises etc.

cheers.

I train the oly lifts + squats 3x/ week by following the routines my coach gives me. I added a 4th session of bodybuilding exercises on saturday or sunday including stuff like dumbbell rows, dips, incline bench press (typical upper body BB stuff, as I am already doing enough for my legs and posterior chain). Nothing special, just 3-5 sets of 8-10 reps to build some muscle.
