Nice. Are you looking at a ramp up of a week or more? Or just going by feel in terms of intensity?

I did well last time I did this in working each weight up to 15-20 singles, then adding weight, so I think I'll try that again. The true Bulgarian stuff (work up to max, then back down for a few singles) works better for people who are super consistent with technique. The Mills 20/20 and the kind of program I'm thinking of following are good for getting lots of reps with a weight that promotes solid technique...

5x? Are you still using 5/3/1 for some exercises?

No 5/3/1 for now. That tends to beat me into the ground pretty quickly when I combine it with oly lifting with any intensity or volume. So pretty much pure Bulgarian style...

I'm hoping the 2-3 months of 5/3/1 got some base strength that I can apply to the fast lifts. Or something...

Ohhhhh, was the 5x week as in frequency? Like 5 workouts/week?

I kind of think that 5/3/1, at least to me, seems all wrong for an Oly lifter. Frequency, intensity, technique all seem to be the name of the game. That's about as far as my oly training knowledge goes these days though.

Yep, pure focus on either strength or oly lifting seems to work least poorly for me... I hope I figure out what actually works well.

Sunday:
sn technique (sn dl + muscle sn to work positions)
light jerks

Shoulders sore...
