Shin Splints and Oly Lifting

I’ve had shin splints for a long time now, however I can’t full clean more then 165 due to the pain now. Some of you might think I just need to suck it up, but I’ve tried for weeks, and it just gets worse. Should I take time off oly lifting and do the coal/phillipi deadlift cycle?

also on the deadlift cycle. I do BOR on my upper body days, and circuit training just isn’t going ot happen in my weightroom, too many people. are these going to be a big deal? I also have an erection for chins, is there going to be any real difference doing weighted chins instead of pulldowns. I know “don’t fuck with the program” but I’m just curious.

I’ll be hopefully doing a 405-455 pounds DL cycle would that make sense? Or is it to much improvement?

Right now I’d be set up like:

Monday:
coan deadlif cycle

Tuesday:
ME bench variation
military press
DB incline press
face pulls

Thursday:
snatch
Squat
close stance box squat

Friday:
speed bench
dumbell bench
jerk press
DB row
chins

What do you guys think, obvious assistanec lifts and percentages will be followed, this way I can keep the assistance lifts as is.
