First off, this is my first post though I’ve used the site for a while. I’m looking forward to discussing things with all of you.
Anyway, I’m basically training for all around athleticism so I aim to incorporate a variety of training styles. I’ve been a mixed athlete for years, so I have experience, but I always struggle with how to best use the Olympic lifts and their variations most effectively. Currently, I am looking to spend 4 days a week lifting and another 2-4 doing various forms of cardiovascular work, plyometrics, GPP, etc.
The most basic question that I have is how to use the Olympic lifts. However, I feel that I can ask that question a lot more specifically. In the past I have generally used Olympic movements interspersed amongst my other workouts. Say doing one movement every time I am in the gym or twice a week, whatever. That is one option.
I am curious if dedicating one day a week to Olympic movements would work also. It would allow me to really focus on the movements for that day. Would this work? Which would most likely be better?
I’m assuming that there will be no one answer to this question but I’d like some opinions.
