Default Which Cycle???

I've been CrossFitting for almost 2 years now, and want to begin to focus more on honing my Olympic Lifting skills. I have worked with a great Oly coach a few times, but distance makes regular training with him intermittent at best.

I'm looking for a program that will help me to develop strength through the phases of the lifts with a focus on technique. I've taken a look through all the great training cycles in the archives, just looking for suggestions as far as which one to begin with.

I'm drawn to the Classic/Position Cycle.....
Any thoughts are appreciated.

That's a good place to start. Make sure you watch the videos that were posted the first week.

Yes i agree with you Greg Everett that it is good for starting and you can easily perform it as it is good for beginners and do take this without any hesitation.
