    Just listened to your podcast on the upcoming Olympic lifting meet where you discuss practicing/training the Clean & Press. There are days during the NLP where we are doing Power Cleans on the same day as OHP. It sure would add a bit of spice to the NLP if we could train the Clean and the Press in the same movement. I realize some press more and some clean more, but if you practice the Clean & Press together, it seems like it would be reasonable to run that through the same progression we do every other lift.

    Meet competition requires intermediate and advanced programming. The NLP stays like it is, because it's the fastest way to get strong. If you are a novice lifter and you want to go to a meet, sign up for the meet and go lift.

    Geronimo, in addition to the programming aspect that Rip mentions above, it is unlikely that your clean grip and your press grip are the same. For the clean and press, lifters typically use a different grip for the clean - changing the relatively light clean in the clean and press to a less optimal pull - or they use their clean grip and move the hands in after the rack. IOW, it's a more complicated situation than you are presenting.
