Which rep schemes work best for the olympic lifts? I'm planning on doing one day a week dedicated to the oly lifts, and what wondering what kind of rep ranges are most effective for progression.

I'm looking for 3 rep schemes that will be cycled in a MEBB type way. Something like 4x3, 6x2, 10x1 (thats what I'm planning on using unless someone has a better suggestion), where the reps per set and total volume are decreased, so the weight can be increased.

Any suggestions?

Not that I'm any expert on this matter by any means, but if it was me, I would drop the triples and just cycle the singles and doubles. Heck, since you're only doing this once a week, I would probably just do the singles with a few doubles for warmup.
