Hey everybody, I believe this is my first post, though I’ve been reading for a couple years. Anyways, I guess I should give a quick history of my training:
-Bodybuilding Methods for a couple years of High School
-Crossfit for a couple years of High School
-Powerlifting/Strongman/Gymnastics/Unstructured for a year of college
-After that very unproductive year, I ran through Starting Strength, and have recently started 5/3/1.
I know the Olympic lifts produce the highest power/flexibility/speed/co-ordination/etc, and I would love to start focusing on them. From what I’ve read today, it seems that time is wasted on power variations, until they’re needed as accessory; FS is/should be ~85%+ of BS(I haven’t FS since Crossfit, so I know mines nothing special); starting out (after technical consistency) it’s a good idea to Sn, CJ, and FS every time you workout for a daily max (not always a PB), and start adding in maybe an accessory movement once you develop weaknesses.
I know I still need more strength, and would hate to stop BS, so I was wondering what you guys thought of this:
-BS 6x2 (I would continuing adding a rep per week, till 6, then add weight and reset reps to 2)
-BS 6x2 (same weight as Mon, though would not increase reps)
Sn/CJ/FS would all be working towards a heavy single/double/triple for the day.
Has anyone experimented with this type of approach? Is this madness and should I just follow a site like olyathlete/cathletics? Any opinions are greatly appreciated, and if you want to know anything else please just ask. Sorry for such a long first post.
