Week 1 of 6

This will be a short 6-week cycle that runs in 2 3-week waves. Adjust weights if needed to account for technical limitations, e.g. if an 80% snatch is very easy for you, bump up the weight to something that's challenging for 5 singles but not maximal. Snatch and clean pull weights in such a case will also need to be increased. Make sure to throw in ab and lower back work as needed 2-4 days/week.
