New to CA...Which Cycle to choose???
I've been CrossFitting for almost 2 years now, and want to begin to focus more on honing my Olympic Lifting skills. I have worked with a great Oly coach a few times, but distance makes regular training with him intermittent at best.

I'm looking for a program that will help me to develop strength through the phases of the lifts with a focus on technique. I've taken a look through all the great training cycles in the archives, just looking for suggestions as far as which one to begin with.

I'm drawn to the Classic/Position Cycle.....
Any thoughts are appreciated.

That's a good place to start. Make sure you watch the videos that were posted during the first week.

Thanks so much for your input and all of the excellent information you provide on this site Greg! An invaluable resource for every coach and athlete. Really enjoying your input on the Paleo Solution Podcasts as well!

As someone who asked the same question & made the same exact transition about 6 months ago, I'll say good choice, and good luck!
