Default Conjugate method with olympic weightlifting

Wondering if Louie Simmons method at all would be applicable to Olympic weightlifting.

If it would be applicable I wonder how "random" one should be when selecting exercises. Weightlifting is so much more than just pure strength.

I like the thought of maxing out a random exercise every week but still having a system around it.

The WS tpl seem to be hard to incorporate with WL since WL need to have both press and squat at the same day i.e C&J.

Mo:
Max effort Squatting/DL
Lower Body assistance

We:
Max Press variations
Upper body push, pull assistance work

Fri:
Squatting variations
Deadlift variations

Sat:
Pressing variations


Directions, thoughts ?

When would you be weightlifting, and what would those relative intensities be?

You could just follow a Bulgarian approach and go to max like this:

Monday:
Front Squat & CJ
Tuesday:
Back Squat & Power Snatch
Thurs:
CJ from blocks & Clean Pulls
Friday
Squat & Snatch
