Thanks very much man you've given me a bit to think about.
Yeah the Olympic sessions arnt to taxing as the weight is relatively light as I'm still learning the techniques I.e snatch is under 50KG and jerk is under 70KG, also the training is two hours but more than an hour is spent doing mobility work for opening up the muscle's and it will be like this until my squat dept is on par.
I hear what your saying about the frequency with training, personally I prefer the 4 day split myself and would like to continue doing it so I'm going to have a chat with my coach about it.
He's a great coach, since Ireland is pretty small in terms of weight training we really don have many members but an example I can give you is wee steve who has been with Harry for 3 years, Steve weights 57KG and snatches 62KG, jerks 74KG and squats 105KG now I know that's not very impressive but you have to remember that this is someone who has no interest in muscle mass, he only cares about competing and keeping his weight low. Harry has been training with easy coast barbell for years and really seems to know his stuff.
Whereas with me, I'm using the Olympic lifting to complement my own training, If there good enough for Dan John then their good enough for me lol.
After sleeping on it I think I'll tell Harry I want to stick with the program I'm already on until it stops working, but I'll compromise by trading out the bench press on Monday for more rows
What do you think?
