Olympic Lift Before Squat/Deadlift Day


Hey im using jims 5/3/1 on my squat/deadlift day is it ok to olympic lift before the big lift? how many sets/reps should i limit my self to? thank you


Wendler's been asked this before and has stated it's a good idea. Not sure on the sets/reps, but low reps at a weight that won't wear you out for the main lift should be good.
