In november I'll start my "off-season" for the highland games. This will last until the middle of february or so.
The plan is to practice implements a little less, and hit the weights a little more. Get faster, stronger, etc.
My plan was going to be as follows:
monday = strength speed, big 3 variant + accomadating resistance, focus on keeping weight moderate heavy and over .5m/sec
tuesday = olympic movements & assistance work
thursday = speed strength, big 3 variant + minor accomadating resistance, focus on keeping weight lighter and over 1m/s.
I'm contemplating changing this to monday/wed/fri.. monday being strength as already noted, wednesday being repetition/assistance and friday being speed as already noted.
Wednesday will be either either squats or deads + either bench or overhead presses (to be transitioned weekly) plus assistance work. Will start out in the 50% range for sets of 15 and work up from there over the course of approx 12 weeks. Minimal sets, maybe 3-4 of each, mainly to work on muscular endurance and conditioning. I'll taper down to no less than 8 reps. So, all I'll be doing is exchanging hip snatches and hang cleans for a squat/deadlift variant and bench/ohp variant with high reps. I coul dpossibly even keep the same days and use the endurance stuff as a recovery session to the power stuff.
Discuss plz. I'm interested in others' opionins.
