Thanks for the response. No disrespect taken; frankly I expected to be flamed much worse. I suppose you could call it crossfit...in the sense that it's training across a variety of disciplines and sports...and I have no major beef with crossfit programming, just crossfit culture (the sense of entitlement I see in that community bother me...and their idea that they produce the most fit athletes I think is just flat out wrong). I very much appreciate your thoughts and input on my question. Below are some thoughts/ideas I've had if it's of any interest to you.
My goal for training is to have a good natural looking physique and be athletic, and for oly lifts...I want to be proficient at the lifts and hopefully over the next year or so put up respectable numbers (I'm pretty long limbed and have never been elite in terms of strength, so right now I have no serious aspirations of competing ...just want to take advantage of the physique and power benefits of having some oly lifting abilities (honestly, I think it's one of the best ways you can balance out over compensations and strength throughout complete range of motion, when done correctly)). However, I might sign on for the Sunday class as well, to get in a second day of lifting (Do you think twice a week would yield decent results or is full dedication to oly lifts the only way to see strong results in your opinion?).
I've joined a weightlifting club and have two coaches who compete (1 is in his late 20's, the other is a 65 year old masters competitior who has done the pan am games and still lifts in masters competitively, so I feel pretty lucky to have that). These guys are going to take care of the programming and technique for me so I didn't provide any details in regards to that, and also because I'm still at the beginnning stages (working on technqiue, no true 1rm established....so not much to speak of there). I more or less posted this here to see if anyone had any thoughts or ideas on how to round out the program or how best to train the day before oly lifts without taking away from that training day, and maybe inspire people to pursue fitness in a way that's is unconventional but fun.
Anyways, I'll update my progress here and let you know how it works out for me. And, I'm thinking I'm going to ditch plyo and do 2 boxing/arms days for the extra conditioning (good cardio, and fun, without being really explosive like plyo). It might exhaust my shoulders bit for the jerk, but I'll adjust my programming as necessary if my lifting progresses to a point where it's an issue.
chest/back circuits monday friday,
boxing/arms tuesday/saturday (with some stretching and band work at the end to work on flexibility issues for the oly's)
oly lifts on wednesday and potentially sunday, with maybe a squash session in the late afternoon.
Every 3 weeks I'll take an active rest week to let my body recover and I'll have a pretty nice refeed and carb up one day on the weekend to assist all the training. I'll maybe skip a day of boxing here and there for extra recovery.
