The info coming from this topic is great and I thank those who have provided it.I started an overreaching week with snatch and clean or variations of in morning and strength work in evening. As stated i have used the Journal recently published in NSCA SCJ by leo Totten & Co as a basis for how much, reps,sets, intensity should be increased.
I'm on day 4 and it ain't easy but the body can easily cope with 80-95% lifts. However, warm-ups, recovery and diet are playing a more evident part as the week goes on.

Aye, fascinating discussion. I've been wanting to add more strength work into my workouts, possibly moving into the realm of 2-a-days, but haven't really worked out the timing in my schedule. Really appreciate your sharing of the study Glenn.

I believe that was our original 6 week model, but I dont think the one available for a while on the web was the final version.

I am at a high school strength seminar for a couple of days, so not as much access to the internet, but Ill comment more when I get back home.

Now on my deloading weeks, 3 sessions this week and 2 next week. The overreaching week itself with physically and mentally very challenging. Everything goes out the window and all you got to do is think about lifting eating and sleeping.
I got it tough on Day 3 and 5 but loved the challenge. Also noticed my snatch technique declined throughout the week. CJ stayed solid but that says more about my technique.
Thoroughly recommend a go.
