So, a few weeks ago, I started olympic lifting at Lost Battallion Hall. Before I began, I thought of it as more of a temporary thing, just until I learned the lifts. But ever since the first time I snatched the bar, I was addicted. Now, I’m planning on spending at least all of 2007 training for olympic lifting.
With that goal in mind, though, I need some advice. You see, we meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, but I want to train on Fridays, also. Generally, when we train we do something like the following, though it’s never fixed to one thing:
- Power Snatch or Power Clean
- Snatch or Clean and Jerk
My question is about what I should do on Fridays when I train on my own. I figure it should be a “remedial” day Coach Thib wrote an o-lifting program that used a “remedial” day like this:
- Military Press
- Barbell Curl
I’ve never done curls but he justified them with “you’re only as strong as your weakest link.” So what do you guys think? Will this round out my training well?
