I've been toying with the idea of formulating a new plan for myself, consisting of both strength work (i.e. powerlifting) and power work (Olympic lifts).
I just came across this article, which caught my attention:
While I am not exactly pressed for time during the week, the structure of the program is noteworthy.
One idea is (and this is just spitballing here) basically having a push/pull or upper/lower split, but alternating strength and power. So, basically, consisting of:
(not necessarily in that order)
(again, in some order)
Another idea, is to program around Dan John's summary of the basic human movements--push, pull, hinge, squat, loaded carry--giving each movement a day, or at least touching on each movement once or twice every week. Of course, I'd include both strength and power work.
Bottom line is, I want to learn the Olympic lifts, even if I start with power variations. I already have a decent grasp on the power clean, but I want to get into the snatch (har har) and the jerk.
In the meantime, I'll continue my modified 5/3/1 template, patterning snatches on Wednesdays along with power cleans.
