I’m a Crossfitter (no! don’t stop reading the post!!!) but I’m looking for something different as I enter the Rugby season.
I’ve come up with these exercises for the One-Lift-a-Day program.
Monday - Squats (with the jumps in between)
Tuesday - Press - (push press to replace the jumps of the squats)
Wednesday - Power Cleans (not sure if I can do another exercise to supplement this one)
Thursday - Rest
Friday - Deadlifts (speed deads with smaller weight)
Saturday - Snatches (not sure how this is going to work after DL day… but I need to put them in somewhere)
After carefully crafting my exercise choices, I realized I forgot chin-ups.
Questions I have are:
Will these exercises work for my goals of overall strength gains without creating strength imbalances?
Which day do you think I should add pull-ups?
Maybe replace Snatch day… because it would mostly be practising technique since I’m not as comfortable with the snatch as much as the clean.
Although It would suck to only have one Oly lift in there…
Do you think I will have adequate rest from the DL day to Squat day, and vice versa?
Although I think four days would be enough… but Danny John said that I wouldn’t be walking the next day after squats (that would be pretty cool!)
Rest from Press day to Powerclean day could be a problem to…
Thanks for any input!
