Since I only can workout Mon. - Fri. how would you suggest that I follow the routine? I've been trying to do the Mon. - Wed. on Wed. - Fri. and then combining the Sat. followed by the Fri. metcon on Mon. Do you have anything better in mind?
Greg Everett 2 | 2008-08-27
Jeff - I'm a little confused by what you wrote. I'd do Mon-Wed as scheduled and combine Fri and Sat on Fri.
Jeff G 3 | 2008-08-27
That's all I needed. Thanks a lot.

I'll be doing the front squat workout tomorrow and no rest day the day after since I had 2 rest days in a row just now. Question: Should I continue to try and catch up to the workouts I missed? Or should I jump to the most recent one considering that I need to choose the workout with the most technical work rather than focusing strength? I have decent strength and I know the basic lifts well, but horrible and new to PM since Strength Cycle 1. Chances are with univeristy starting 5 workouts a week will be rare. 4 will be more reasonable and 3 workouts a week might happen here and there depending on school and work stress, but i don't wanna stop working out! So again, my question, should I keep trying to catch up, or skip strength intensive workouts?
Greg Everett 13 | 2008-08-30
Tarun - Don't try to make 5 days fit into 3 entirely - keep focusing primarily on the actual snatch/CJ and technique work, and maybe throw in a back squat and front squat 1x/week each as well as a snatch pull.

Just wanna let you know I will be ordering 14 books soon. ;)
