I'm on the 9 week power cleaning program from this article.
- It's performed 3X's per week. I fit them in on Monday, Wednesday, Friday
- On my "Off" Days on Tuesday, Thursday I do my Upper Body
- My goals while on this program are to get a good blend of size and strength for my Upper Body while learning the power clean.
- I've been training for about 2-3 yrs.
- Any comments & advice are welcomed.
