How much do you back squat?

People with a good strength base usually do better at the lifts than people who don't, and SS for a couple of months is probably the quickest way to get a good solid strength base. You could have Saturdays be a heavy single day for the clean and jerk and snatch.

If your strength base is decent, however, you'd be much better off just training the olympic lifts.
