Only TWO days a week
Hey guys, looking for some input on how to schedule my training.

For the next six weeks I only have access to Oly platforms on Tuesday and Thursday nights. The other 5 days of the week I have access to a gym where I can only do bodybuilding/powerlifting.

I'm still a beginner and could stand to work on some basic strength anyway, so this might be a blessing in disguise. Any suggestions for programming?

I'm thinking:

Monday: Upper body strength work

Tuesday: Snatch, pulls, back squat

Wed: Rest/Recovery

Thursday: C+J, pulls, front squat

Friday: Upper body strength work

Saturday: Squaturday

I'd say that's a pretty decent breakdown. I'd be cautious with the upper body days. Other than presses of different sorts, I'd also try to do things like RDLs, SLDLs, Good Mornings, or Pendlay rows/bent-over rows -- exercises that directly relate or help strengthen the movements and can be used as a recovery tool. Also, try to focus on range of motion and stretching during those days, too. You don't want to be sore or immobile when you're trying to be overhead on your classic lift days.

Hope this helps.
