Default Programming article in latest Get Up.

This might be obvious stuff to veterans of weightlifting, but I found the explanation of basic oly programming in the latest Get Up (http://danjohn.org/getup.html) to be enlightening.

Duane goes from very simple (lift heavy three times/week in the basic three: SN, C&J, FSQ) all the way to a 5/6 day program.

I've probably read similar stuff before but for some reason this presentation made a lot of sense to me.

It seems to fill the gap between just practicing the technique to get it down and more sophisticated programming like this site.

Highly recommended.

pretty standard "bulgarian" type training, but a good article.

RE sophistication... i wouldn't call this site's programming more sophisticated, exactly, just appropriate for different goals. the more bulgarian approach is arguably the best way to train weightlifters with decent strength bases and technical profiency.
