I’ve been curious about ways to program the Power Clean of late. This post on the subject caught my attention: The Post.
For my main lifts (squat, press, power clean, bench, deadlift) I currently use the guidance for the non-competitive powerlifter as listed in 5/3/1 for Powerlifting. I push for PR sets on my 3x3 and 5/3/1 weeks and if I get 8 reps or more on the 3x3 and 5 on the 5/3/1 week for the PR sets I do 2-5 heavy singles.
It’s working well for my strength, having pulled a 202.5 lbs power clean back in December among other things but a smart lifter is always open to information.
The part of the post that caught my attention was this:
Clean - 5x3 @ 5x5/3/1
Does this mean, for instance, do the 3x3 week like so:
Thanks for any input.
