Rather than hijack that thread adressed to Christian, which seems to have already undergone a bit of a hijaking, I thought I would post a question that thread raised on a new thread
“olympiclifter” indicated that he was gooing to be doing a program of power versions of the lifts, squats, and some auillary work, and then return to olympic lifting competetion years later and presumably much stronger. I am wondering how effective a program this would be. I ask because I currently have no access to an olympic weightlifting coach, but I really like both the idea of one day competeing on some level in o-lifting and I really enjoy the high frequency and explosiveness of o-lift training. Thus, I thought a program based on simplified forms of the lifts and squats might be perfect for me now. What do you guys think, and do you have any precise suggestions for structuring the workout?
