Wondering if Louie Simmons method at all would be applicable to Olympic weightlifting.

If it would be applicable I wonder how "random" one should be when selecting exercises. Weightlifting is so much more than just pure strength.

I like the thought of maxing out a random exercise every week but still having a system around it.

The WS tpl seem to be hard to incorporate with WL since WL need to have both press and squat at the same day i.e C&J.

Max effort Squatting/DL
Lower Body assistance

Max Press variations
Upper body push, pull assistance work

Squatting variations
Deadlift variations

Pressing variations

Directions, thoughts ?

When would you be weightlifting, and what would those relative intensities be?

You could just follow a Bulgarian approach and go to max like this:

Front Squat & CJ
Back Squat & Power Snatch
CJ from blocks & Clean Pulls
Squat & Snatch
