Last mondays workout. 1-1-1 65kg Snatch 1-1-1 80kg C&J 33 80kg Snatch Pull 33 85kg Snatch deadlift The Snatch feels a lot better but still lifts my ass to fast and receives the bar in an arch which forces the bar to go backwards. Lessons learned Maintain back angle + better/higher/faster pull. Still no Snatch squatting. Trying to learn the power snatch properly. C&J felt very easy. Improved split jerk today. Will do the Front Squats + metabolic conditioning later this evening.

Hi, I am looking to increase my explosiveness and strength and hopefully my vertical leap. I have taken workouts from this site before but am now going to follow it strictly, starting at the beginning of the cycle. In the recommendations it says supplementing additional stuff would be to taxing for many, so I have two questions. In order to increase vertical leap would this program alone be suitable, and if not is there some way to modify it with some plyometrics to make it work? Any input is much appreciated.

Matt - I would do something simple like cut out the deadlifts to reduce the volume and overall stress of the program, reduce sets here and there as you find necessary elsewhere, and then tack on a jump program that gives you 2-3 sessions/week of training, which should be pretty low volume. Depending on what that program is, you also might want to cut the box jumps from this program.

Did Mon's lifting on Tue. My little girl was sick over the weekend & I caught some of her bug... mom is next. Used Oly-Shoes for the first time today. A friend lent me his Pendlay Do-Wins. I had been lifting in Vibrams until now (yeah I know; not a good idea) so it took some getting used to. All the squats felt GREAT. Though snatching felt a little odd cause of the high heal. I ordered a pair of Ristos, can't wait to break them in. Does any out there own a pair of these?
Matt 11 | 2010-09-14
Okay thanks a lot Greg. I was thinking of adding a couple exercises, such as standard two foot 1/4 squat jumps @ 3 x 10, depth jumps @ 3 x 5, and some skipping. Ramping up the reps by 1 each week. I would incorporate this into your programming and cut exercises where necessary. I would like to do these exercises seperatly at home, would there be good days to incorporate these in order to maximize recovery and not overtrain? From the programing it appears that they would fit in best on Mondays and Thursdays, does this seems reasonable. Thanks again for the help.
