This is not just another routine thread. I need YOUR help. I am interested in talking about how to make this work and maybe making an interesting split that could gain benefit from two very different worlds of lifting.
So, I'm bored here with some broken fingers. I like to think and like to lift and since I can't lift I am thinking about lifting. I was reading around on various boards and got to thinking about conjugate periodization, like one does, and was wondering how to incorporate that with Oly movements. How do these samples look? I would really like to create a sweet split philosophy... so please, humor an injured lustful lifter!
Possible Movement Inclusions:
-Horizontal Push OR ME/DE Bench
-ME/DE DL (could switch these week to week)
-Hamstring Supporting Movement
-Quad Supporting Movement
-CnJ + 1 Variation
-Snatch + 1 Variation
It seems possible to mix these and although I have not done it yet it looks like it might work well for those who not only want good looking numbers (that is if they respond to conjugate methods) but also the athletes and those looking for that CNS speed and full body muscle team work.
This^ evolves into these templates:
Clean & Jerk
DE Bench Press
ME Bench Press
Tricep or Horizontal Pushing Movement
Clean and Jerk
OH Pushing Movement
Horizontal Pulling Movement
Here is a sample split I am looking into for myself using the above template. It is a little more complex than the above 3 day template but looks solid to me.
ME/ RE Squat- 5x5-1
** If ME Squat then Breathing Squats
Flat Press- 5x5
Power Clean- 5x3
Snatch High Pull- 5x5
RE/ ME Deadlift- 5x5-1
** If ME DL then DE Squat
Push Press v Overhead Press 5x5
Clean and Jerk- 5x5-1
Front v Overhead Squat- 5x5
Stiff Legged Deadlift- 5x5
Kipping Pull-ups 3x Failure v Weighted Pull-ups- 5x5
What do you guys think?
edit: this is also in the oly/pl forums too.
