As I said you SHOULDN’T do the olympic lifts while doing OVT.
I love the OL and I use them in the training of my athletes, but really, they are no magical exercises and they are NOT suited for all goals and programs.
In the case of OVT I would strongly advise you not to perform the olympic lifts at the same time.
Why are you training anyway? Is it size? Strength? Power? Performance for sport? Pick one goal and stick with it. Training for too many things will lead to frustration and overtraining, then it will give me a bad name for recommanding the program.
Peoples are WAY too hypnothized by OVT!!! When I first wrote the program it wasn’t meant to be the by-all end-all of hypertrophy programs! It’s only a short term program to give a spark to your gains. It absolutely CANNOT be performed for long periods of time (no more than 4 straight weeks) without risking overtraining.
Honestly I firmly believe that my pendulum approach is much superior to OVT for long term progress. Heck one can even include OVT in a pendulum as an hypertrophy week.
If you absolutely want to perform the OL (first ask yourself why you want to do them? Because you’ll look cool? Because their “in” right now? Because you’ll look impressive doing them? or because you want to improve performance?) A better idea would be to use the pendulum approach combining OVT, olympic lifting and basic strength training.
Week 1: OVT (structural)
Week 2: Powerlifting-type training (functional strength)
Week 3: olympic lifting (functional speed-strength)
Week 4: Powerlifting-type training (functional strength)
Week 5: OVT (structural)
This is only a possible suggestion, many more option exist!
Many peoples want it all at the same time… They want to be powerful and strong, but also muscular and ripped. So they reason that by using a good hypertrophy program (OVT) along with elements of a good performance program (OL) they will get the best of both world. IT ABSOLUTELY DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY. In fact, one method might very well negate the effects of the other one, or at least limit your rate of progress.
