Hey Greg.

I'm just finishing your 5 week classic cycle. I'm competing Feb. 12, so I have a couple weeks left until competition day. Any ideas on what program I should continue to follow until competition time? This will be my first Oly lifting comp. Have competed in powerlifting before. I thought perhaps Burgener's 4 x week generic program may be alright for now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Paul -Burgener's 4-day program would be a good choice. If you want to train a fifth day, make it a day where you work on your weak points with relatively light weights.

Awesome! Thanks Greg. I'll keep you posted with results. Your programming has improved my lifts dramatically...Starting PR's prior to starting your 5 week classic cycle was Snatch 205 lbs, Clean & Jerk 275 lbs...current PR's are Snatch 245 lbs, Clean & Jerk 325 lbs. I have rack jerked 330 lbs as well, which is a huge PR for me. Thanks for everything!
