We discussed using your training w/OPT. OPT has 11 traing events a week, so I am planning on doing 3 of your workout a week, to avoid stretching myself to thin. The design I have come up with is a snatch focused workout, a c/j focused workout, and a workout that focus on both. Looking at your training do you think it is more beneficial to complete the workouts that have programing with the actual lift i.e snatch 65% 3 X 3. Or days with complexes like Power snatch + OHS. Thank You.

Sorry I miss spoke. 8 OPT workouts plus 3 of yours equals 11.

Jeff -I think you should focus on the assistance/technical work on those first two days, then hit the actual lifts on the third day.

Thanks Greg. That makes much more sense.

Quick question on this week of this programming for the power snatch + OHS why does it say to hold it at the bottom of the snatch? Do you mean hold the catch position of the power snatch or is that a mistake?

Hold the bottom of the squat for 2 seconds before standing on each of the OHS.
