I will be glad to come down…any time.
I should have seen that reply coming from you from a mile off. I think I remember seeing the recommendation somewhere on your website. But you know what, I might actually attempt to do it! Last night when doing some bench press I felt a bit of pain in my upper arm that only seems to happen when doing a horizontal push motion, so I might have strained something in that area of the shoulder/upper arm. Taking a few weeks off those sort of exercises might be a good idea. “Day 3” might be the answer.
I’ll see if I can rally some support amongst Aussie T-Nation members about organising a boot camp, if enough of us want to do it then we could make it happen. I’m sick of feeling left out all the way over here!
Also, I found out that finally a Highland games was actually happening in my local area tomorrow, the trouble is I’ve got a family birthday to go to, not happy about it at all! I was looking forward to going and having a look to see the games first hand and find out if more of them regularly occur. I have searched for them on the net but they seem few and far between down here, but I’m sure I’ll get to compete in one eventually!

I like Day Three a lot. Do this a week or two, then get back to me.
I need a ticket and a date.
I’ve just put together a program which will sort of be an “intesification” phase for 3 weeks. I’m coming to the end of a 4 week higher volume program where I have been doing a lot of the 3 stage drills for the O-lifts. My main question is if you think I am overdoing the amount of heavy singles in this program, especially on Day 3.
Snatch 5/3/2 then 5 singles
Military Press 3/2/1/3/2/1
Clean 5/3/2 then 5 singles
Bench Press 3/2/1/3/2/1
Bent BB Row 5x3
Snatch 3/3/2/2 then 10 singles
Clean & Jerk 3/3/2/2 then 10 singles
Thanks for any advice you might have.
Also, you couldn’t talk to your mate Charles Staley about holding one of those boot camps down here in Australia could you?
