That sounds saner.

I Black Boxed for a couple months. You can also throw in a little non-maximal work to keep the groove smooth. E.g.:

Snatch heavy
Back Squat heavy
Overhead Press medium

C+J heavy
FSQ heavy
Overhead Squat medium

You can also get mileage out of progression from exercise to exercise, e.g.:

Power Snatch until you have to squat snatch
Squat snatch to max
Overhead squat reps with a heavy squat snatch weight
Back Squat to heavy triple

To be honest, I didn't see any oly progress until I started adding in some more non-maximal oly days. All the pure strength exercises went up nicely, though, even though I was still doing X-Fittish stuff then.
