Default ME Black Box Format

So far, Ive only seen ME Black Box designed with two groups of exercises. For example, first group; clean, back squat, press, second; dead, front squat, dip. Could you do three groups of exercises? For example, 1.) snatch, back squat, press, 2.) clean, front squat, weighted dips, 3.) dead, OHS, weighted pull-ups? The only down side I can see is that it would be kind of a long gap in between groups.

Brandon-
I think the plan is to run with the movements 2-3 weeks to get some exposure and depth and then rotate before stagnation sets in. The movement you are talking about have so much overlap you will maintain, perhaps even improve with the rotations. Much of the magic behind conjugate training and CF.
