After further review of the program and my goal of competing in three weeks, I decided to end the 12 week technique program with weeks 11 and 12 left. I will start the 3 week Bulgarian Peaking Cycle today, also from Greg Everett's book.
My final assessment of the technique program? It's good stuff. If you have experience with lifting then using some permutation of the program would suit you better. If you don't have any experience at all then the full program would be better. See my notes that I posted previously.
Yes, I think my lifting technique is better because of it. This program accomplished two objectives: better technique and increased awareness of body mechanics.
What do you mean let's listen to "Viking metal"? Vikings didn't play heavy metal, they played bongos and flutes!
