Default Kyle's Beginner OL Preparation

Hello guys, I'm very new to this forum, but it looks like this is the place to keep an OL training journal.

A little bit about me: I'm 21 years old, junior standing exercise science student at Sam Houston State University in Texas. I work as a fitness trainer training mostly general population and a few football athletes here and there. I love to train for strength, power, and speed. I've been training seriously for football, track, and bobsled (skeleton) for the past 3 years. I am still training for skeleton but I also want to become the strongest I can be and compete to be the best olympic weightlifter I can be. I became USAW-1 certified earlier this year under Kyle Pierce and it helped tremendously with learning the lifts. However I still need some help perfecting myself in the lifts. I would also still consider myself a beginner since I have yet to compete in a meet. (I also have yet to do an actual jerk).

Here are my PB's from 2011:Back Squat (just below parallel) - 405lbs
Front Squat (just below parallel) - 275lbs x 3
Power Clean - 115kg x 1 (caught just above parallel)
Snatch - 75kg x 1 (just barely missed 80kg)

Goals for 2012:
Back Squat - 435lbs
Front Squat - 365lbs
Clean and Jerk - 125kg
Snatch - 85kg

Current bodyweight - 5'10, 175lbs, 7-8% bodyfat

Recent training Clips:

110kg - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beMdopqivlg

First meet will be at Blackbox weightlifting in Ft. Worth, Texas - February 25, 2012

I just came off of a GPP phase after taking 2 months off, the real work starts today. I will be following a program from a Kyle Pierce/Stone influence.
