I'm currently doing Defranco's Westside for Skinny Bastards (3 days/week) and playing soccer 2-3 days/week (1 game, 2-3 practices or pick up games), and I'm looking to add in some olympic lifting to increase my explosiveness and power - correct me if I'm wrong on assuming this will help. I love the strength and size gains I'm seeing each week with the Westside adaptation so I don't want to just quit that for a full blown OL program, but I'm not sure how to work in the olympic lifts. Any ideas? Here's what I've been toying with:
just add them in at the beginning or end of my current workouts. But then which day(s): ME upper body, lower body, or repetition uppper body?
take an additional day and just work OL. This may be easier in a few weeks when the season's over, and I have an extra day to train.
Either way I choose I could then focus on clean and jerks for 1-3 weeks, then focus on the snatch for a few. Or I can hit both each week.
Also, and maybe more importantly, I'm pretty new to OL. Other than a few hang cleans a few months ago I don't have much experience with these lifts. Any tips or suggestions getting started.
Thanks in advance.
