There's nothing wrong with trying something different. There is no one right or wrong answer. If working on the full lifts is what keeps you motivated and working then modify your program. Keep records or your training. Recording not only what work was done but how you felt during the work. If you have a coach record his analysis of your lifts. If you don't have a coach video your lifts and analyze them and record your findings. It doesn't have to be a novel. A simple blurb will do. Analyze the results of the training at the end of the cycle and tweak from there. You never know unless you do it.

I think that whatever keeps you wanting to train is what will work for you. And the best part is that you will be learning how to program yourself.

I ve only been Oly lifting for a while and this is just my personal opinion:
I'm not so sure about the loading and % used...that probably will burn you out unless everything form nutrition to sleep etc is spot on.

There is something to be said for just using the lifts though: it is easy to get stuck on certain technical aspects and certain exercises and it can be quite good to sometimes 'just get on with it'. having said that, i've just completed 2 weeks of pulls of the blocks and power versions of the lifts to get the 2nd pull right! (could you tell i m a novice?! ;-p)

i've found this to be true in other areas as well: when i learn a new technique in judo or jitsu it can be really beneficial to just do the whole thing in one go over and over again rather than to break it down into smaller parts!
i supose it s quite hard to assess this without a coach...
