Am session will usually be at 11-12, pm session will be either 2-3:30 or 7-8:30
I just did my first day feeling good so far but forgot press to handstands. I want to get better at gymnastics but somehow its seems to be less motivating for me internally. Theres always tomorrow.

Andrew, have you read the sprinting thread on this forum http://www.performancemenu.com/forum...read.php?t=106,
think the argument was made pretty persuasively there that speed lifts are not necessary nor likely beneficial for running and jumping athletes. I have looked for evidence to the contrary but have yet to find any good justifications for the use of Oly lifting for speed athletes. Here is thread I wrote asking about the subject http://www.performancemenu.com/forum...ead.php?t=4297

It seems to me the correct answer lies somewhere in the middle of you both

Squatting and Dead Lifting isn't "static strength" and it's not going to ruin his stretch shortening cycle (squats will help build it). And cleans/snatches etc aren't going to not increase your running speed (read: rate of force development). Though according to some, RoF is better developed using methods other than OLifts but whatever...
