All I want to know is how to go about training it? Singles, doubles, triples, fives? By feel? 5/3/1 style? 3/2/1? doesn't matter?
I just don't have the time to practice the olympic lifts anymore, not that I really went anywhere with them to begin with but clean and press looks to awesome to ignore.
I'm going to throw it in my Squat and Bench day before squats and just power clean into press.
To be clear, is it going to be your focus or just warmup/accessory to squat and benching?
For me, if its a focus- work a heavy single then drop 10-30% and work some volume with a focus on technique however you like (singles, doubles, 2-position, etc.).
If its just accessory, I'd go with a very slow progression with medium volume, low intensity. For example, 5 doubles ramping to a maximum intensity of like 60-80%. Only add weight when you are totally satisfied with technique and speed. For me, I add 5lbs when I feel like I could throw the weight to the ceiling and was enjoying how easy
it is. Doing it this way gives good motivation to get back to that place at new weight. Have fun!
