Shawn L - 2 days per week!
Been training the Olympic lifts about a year, and after reading Matt Foreman's book, and making only 10-15lb gains in my lifts over the last 8 months, I have decided to train the Olympic lifts 2 times per week (instead of 4 or 5!). I like the masters program Matt described in "A Master's program that worked". Only problem is, technique is still my biggest problem. I was going to try to train using just the bar on my days off, 20-30 minutes of just going through the motions of the main lifts to help ingrain the proper technique into my head. Also thought about throwing in a day of light (40-50%) snatch balance and power jerks.
Going to use the Daily Maximal Load plan outlined in the book. Hoping to see some better progress over the next year. Gonna try to post updates.
