Classic Article: Alexeev’s Training, from John M Cissik’s blog. January 12th, 2012
The breakdown of his training volume by type of exercise varied by whether it was the preparatory period or the competition period. This is detailed in the table below.
Preparatory Periods Competition Periods
Snatches 30% 40%
Clean and Jerks 6% 10%
Snatch Pulls 11% 10%
Clean Pulls 9% 7%
Squats 40% 27%
Presses 4% 6%
As you can see from the table, there is a much higher emphasis on the snatch than the clean and jerk. Squats, pulls, and presses made up between 50% and 64% of the training volume depending upon the time of year.
