First, thanks to anyone for your time and for your advice. This may not be a conventional question, and if it’s been answered before my apologies (I tried searching but admittedly I sometimes blank on what to search for). Anyways, I am currently making a diverse program in terms of my training. My hope is to improve my physique, sports performance, and overall athleticismm, but also have a little fun in my training. My issue right now is that I’m not quite sure what to do the day before my Olympic lifts. This is the first week of my new program, and I am doing plyometrics the day before but I feel like this might take away from my oly’s. I’d like to incorporate conditioning work, but am kind of stumped as to what I should do. Here’s the basic premise of my program:
Monday: Chest and Back Hybrid Training (lots of pull ups and push ups done in circuits (it’s been very effective for chest development and overall physique and I’m quite happy with this).
Wednesday: Olympic Lifting finishing with squats
Friday: Same Chest and Back workout (vain I know, but it’s doing wonders for my physique)
Saturday: Shoulders/Arms/ and a few hours of squash.
Sunday: Rest for now, may become 2nd day of oly lifting
I was thinking of maybe doing a sprint/walk TABATA protocol for conditioning on Tuesday (the legit 20 on 10 off 4 minute protocol) but again am concerned about taking away from my Wednesday training session. I’m obviously not a pure oly lifter or bodybuilder…to be honest I want to look good and perform well in athletics while still enjoying my program (I’m doing this shift because I’ve gotten really bored with standard training programs and this provides me an opportunity to meet people in the fitness community, which is also important to me). Thanks again for any help!
