Hi everyone, just joined up. This looks a fantastic forum with a good atmosphere.
I discovered this site when i searched for chris mason, he posts on another forum i am a member of. He has submited some good posts so i thought i would see what else i could find.
Bit of background : Had some eating problems (still around to a degree) a few years back and got as low as 8 stone or 51kg (not a good look) after this i got into endurance sports for another while. More recently i have been into weight training, i have now got up to almost 80kg (still a long way to go!)
I have used bill starr 5x5, ABBH and now wsfsb's
My question is: I have become a lover of the OL lifts recently as my uni has weight lifitng platforms. I want to continue with some other weight training stuff too untill i get to a weight i am happy with. I am having problems setitng up a solid routine that combines both.
atm i am using Joe Defrancos westside for skinny bastards and finding it fantastic, best gains i have had so far have came from it! For this reason i would like to stick to the principles of this program.
here is one of my ideas, how does this look?
Snatch grip deads - work up to 3-5rm
BB lunge - 3x12 per leg
Reverse hyper - 4x12
snatch - 10x2
Front squats - 4x12
SLDL - 4x12
Step ups - 2x12 per leg
Cleans - 10x2
Jerk - work up to 2rm
DB Bench - 4x12
Chins - 4x12
Snatch from blocks - 10x2
Dips - 3xmax
Chins - 4x12
Rope pulls to neck - 4x12
Clean from blocks - 10x2
Military press (mabey??)
this may be dreadful, i feel like im going round in circles,lol. I know it would be better to stick to one goal - build my physique or OL lifintg, but i enjoy both and want to continue with the hope of eventually switching completly to OL.
sorry this is pretty long folks
all the best
OLY is the way to go. I've had the most fun in my life doing OLY weightlifting. I got 4th @ last years school age championships (woulda got 3rd, but I had hurt my back a couple weeks before, so I missed the jerk, and I NEVER miss the jerk), and went to Junior Nationals. Couldn't qualify this year cause I killed my knee and couldn't clean.
Anyways, your reps are way too high, and you have way too many sets for cleans. If you want a workout you can pick and choose from my journal. Right now I'm in high school weightlifting season (bench and C+J) so things are a little different because of meets and stuff.
TANDEM C+J: 442
Need to weigh: 62kg
Body fat: 6.3%
Goal for State: 255 Bench, 260 C+J. and 205 snatch for OLY
Hi mate, thanks for the reply.
I know high reps are no good for ol lifitng but i have gained better than ever from 4x12.
As i said i do intend to switch to completly OL in a few months but for just now i want to do both OL and more bibng type stuff
