Week 9 of 9

Monday 1/21/13

Snatch - 90% x 1 95
Clean & Jerk - 90% x 1 120
Front Squat - 90% x 1 x 2 165

We will be going for max lifts on Saturday, so the workload this week will be very low. Avoid the temptation to throw in more training. If you want to get in more reps of the classic lifts, add more warm-up lifts on your way up to the prescribed weights each day.


Tuesday 1/22/13

Snatch - 60% x 1 x 5 OTM 65
Snatch Pull - 100% (of snatch) x 2 x 3 105
Clean & Jerk - 60% x 1 x 5 OTM 80
Clean Pull - 100% (of clean) x 2 x 3 135



Wednesday 1/23/13

Snatch - 80% x 1 85
Clean & Jerk - 80% x 1 110


Thursday 1/24/13

Snatch - 70% x 1 N/A
Clean & Jerk - 70% x 1 N/A

No workout. I went out to dinner with a couple of friends tonight

Friday 1/25/13

Rest Day


Saturday 1/26/13

Snatch - max 105
Clean & Jerk - max 135 (Cleaned 140 no Jerk)
Back squat - max 200

Rest 10 minutes between lifts, but stay warm.

While generally happy with my results in this cycle I am disappointed in my snatch numbers. However, the cycle did provide me with some much needed work on the Jerk and to build strength in my squats.

Sunday 1/27/13

Rest Day

For the next 13 weeks I will be performing the following hybrid program:

Monday - Rest Day
Tuesday - Snatch, Snatch Pull, Front Squat, Push-Ups/Dips
Wednesday - Traversing, Quarter-Mile Repeats
Thursday - Clean & Jerk, Clean Pull, Good Mornings/Back Extensions
Friday - Rest Day
Saturday - Bouldering (long session)
Sunday - Running

I hope to keep all training sessions below 2 hours.

Over three weeks the weightlifting will start with high volume lower intensity and then decreasing volume and increasing intensity over three weeks with a back-off week (think 5-3-1 but with a different loading and rep scheme for the Oly lifts.) and then starting all over.

The running will be linear with a back-off week ever 4 weeks starting a 1 mile run next Sunday and finishing with a 10.6 mile BSIM event at the end April.

The bouldering/traversing will not require skill acquisition. It will require getting back in climbing shape. In the first month I will be working on building volume. In the second month I will be working on strength and in month three I will be working on performance. Again, there will be three week cycles followed by a one week back-off week. In bouldering intensity is primarily measured by grades V0 to V14. With traversing I will also be modifying intensity with time and wearing a weight vest. I will be using the number of hand movements to measure volume.

If I start to feel like I am overtraining then Wednesdays will turn into a rest day.

Some stats before starting this new cycle

Max Snatch 105 lbs

Max Back Squat 200 lbs.
Max Front Squat 2x 175 lbs.

Push-ups 36 in 4 minutes
Pull-ups 19 in 4 minutes

Age 50

My diet is generally clean and cyclic low carb.

My hydrocortisone dosing of 25 mg (15-5-5) supported my training over the last 5 months with good energy levels and low inflammation.
