    My thoughts on DE days

    OK heres a thought on DE lower day.
    I know how DE day is speed squats, and speed pulls
    but what if instead of that, Cleans and snatchs were to be done instead of speed squats and pulls?
    Would it transfer explosiveness the same way?
    I want to do this because I like both power lifting and Oly lifting
    Input? thoughts? concerns? flames?

    Speed work is exercise specific. You will not experience any meaningful transfer from a power clean to your ability to bench press etc.

    It's like anything else in this world, try it for a while and see how it works out. I have had successful training cycyles where I only trained once a week.

    Do a search for olympic lifts and you'll find some pretty in depth discussions on it.

    Also, there are quite a few on DE squat and bench

    But as Chris said already, you aren't going to get any benefit to your squat and bench by replacing it with cleans and snatches.

    I think you'd deffinatly see benefit doing them, but it wouldn't be as much benefit as direct squat/dead speed work
    I'm weak now, but not for long

    well i would still do speed bench for sure
    i was saying replace speed squats with cleans
    and speed pulls with snatchs
    i mean its just a thought
    only cuz i know the oly lifts require alot of speed and power
    and it would keep a PLer athletic(possibly)
    it might help the dead more
    but i figured the rebound out of the hole in the clean might help the squat
    or am i wrong?

    or you could do either do speed pulls OR speed squats and then follow up with cleans and snatches on the same day, just consider your cleans and snatches your assistance work....

    Speed box squats against bands will transfer better than anything IMO.
    Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
    Bench geared 525 @ 210
    Deadlift geared 650 @ 220

    You don't have to necessarily train in the olympic lifts to be pretty good at them...

    http://www.wannabebig.com/forums/sho...hlight=olympic

    of course if you're a specialist you're going to have to, but to be stronger than the average joe (and probably track athlete, or even the average olympic lifter) powerlifting has pretty good transfer once you get the technique down...

    OL can only be performed fast due to the nature of the lift. Explosive training helps but for most OL they are already doing a lot of explosive training.
    Certain types of ME work would help with the OL lifts. The OL lifts can help with some aspects of PL as well. Like a few others have said give it a try.
    2-4 weeks at a time.
