Russian Strength Skill, Exercise Groups?


#1

Hello Christian and or anyone doing this program currently,

I had been of tnation for awhile but really wanted some structure in my workouts for training hang C&j and squats. I came across Russian strength skill which besides the sweet sounding name looks incredibly effective. However I read through the article three times now and think i have made myself just more confused with the "group 1 group 2" and the "workout layout" do i do something like:
Mon: Squat, hang clean
Tues: Floor press, push press
Thur: Squat, Hang clean
Fri: Floor press, push press
Sat: Manual labor day
OR is it

Mon: Squat, hang cln, floor press
tue: squat, clean, push press
thur: squat hang clean, floor press
fri: squat, clean, push press
Sat: Manual labor day

Thank you for any insight/ corrections!

Just checked the article. Option 1 is correct.
That means :

Mon: Squat, hang clean
Tues: Floor press, push press
Thur: Squat, Hang clean
Fri: Floor press, push press
Sat: Manual labor day

And for your mon,tues,thur,fri workout you use :
Workout 1:â??5 x 1 (85%), 1 X 3 (75%)
Workout 2:â??6 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 3:â??7 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 4:â??8 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 5:â??9 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 6:â??10 x 1 (85%)
for each lift.

Thank you! Reading through it again I see the part of why/how I got a little mixed up. Can’t wait to start this reminds me a lot of the very first strength training routine I ever did. Hepburns, squats M, Th, and a press and clean or row on T, F.
