I have about five months before regular spring track training begins (I’ll be throwing shotput). My goal is to boost my deadlift, squat, and clean strength and power as much as possible over those months.
Would it be feasible to mix an adjusted Westside template with daily GTG on Oly lift and deadlift variations? It would mean training 7x a week, but I tend to recover very quickly, and I’ll be eating like a horse.
Here’s what I’m thinking of doing:
Day 1 - ME bench + chest, tri, shoulder strengthening via 1/2/3/4 wave loading
Day 2 - 3/1/3/1/3 oly variation at 80%
1/2/3/4 deadlift variation at 80%
Day 3 - DE squat + plyometrics + abs (trained dynamically)
Day 4 - See Day 2
Day 5 - DE bench + push jerk + Neider press + abs (abs trained at 80%)
Day 6 - See Day 2
Day 7 - Start off with Day 2’s GTG, then Repetition Method for upper back + dynamic ab training
I took out the ME squat day because of the frequency of deadlift training at 80% intensity.
For Oly vars I’ll rotate every 2 weeks between scoop clean pull, power clean, hang clean, scoop snatch-grip pull, high pull, and power snatch.
For DL vars - trap bar DL, Romanian DL, SLDL, rack DL, sumo DL, and low and high box squats.
For bench vars - incline BB bench, CG BB bench, flat DB bench, incline CG BB bench, flat BB bench.
