    You’re working through your linear progression, and you’re making steady progress on the squat, press, bench, and deadlift, but you’ve also developed an itch to do some weightlifting (i.e., Olympic lifting). With this in mind, let’s cover a few options to work the practice of the snatch and clean & jerk[.]

    I'm surprised doubles are recommended for the CJ. I think singles are better. This is basically the VD on the 4day oly TM, minus a few sets, which also uses singles for the CJ.

    I understand. I'm always surprised when someone has different ideas than I do.

    Maybe Phil can write the Olympic Lifting book with Mark; I still think the Olympic lifting world needs the cobwebs and complacency shaken out of it! You guys have pissed off the world of functional ‘strength’ training by speaking truth to power, so maybe it’s time for the Olympic lifting people to get some home truths?

    Why would we spend time on that? They won't read it, because they already know everything and we're clearly wrong because the best lifters in the world do it their way. Just like functional training.
