Hello, I'm pretty new to Catalyst Athletics, but loving the resources you guys provide. Starting oly lifts in November 2011, but have not been training it exclusivly, have been mixing it in with unrelated training phases. I decided to get serious and I am going to do my first (low-level) competition in March 2012. Would this cycle be appropriate for leading up to the competition, with this workout being the subbed for the competition? My current PRs are: - Snatch - 70kg (154lbs) Clean & Jerk - 95kg (209lbs) Thanks in advance Matt

Matt -If you need a lot of technical work, yes, this would be a good one. I've seen this cycle provide big gains. It does required you be pretty intuitive about loading, etc. so just pay attention and don't kill yourself by trying to overdo it, but at the same time, make sure you're working hard enough.

I just finished up week 8 of this program this morning and I am loving it. I am very curious as to where my maxes will be because when I started I could barely snatch an empty bar. I have every intention of restarting after I finish. I love the complexes! I was snatching comfortably at 50kg and CJing comfortably at 75kg, not impressive but like I said, when I started I could barely move the empty bar.
