    I liked it until I saw you were doing a strength routine and working muscles more than once a week. I've always noticed the greatest strength gains working each muscle once a week.

    It does to me, but you might wait to see what the pl'ers on the board say to.

    Oh yea, I'd still prolly want the cleans at the beginning of the week as they take alot out of ya.

    I trust your opinion because after you said it , it made total since to me. I wanted to leave the power cleans on friday so then I have 2 days of rest right after them. Maybe do some cardio on the off days. I guess I worry to much about if Im doing enough work for each muscle during the week, if I will see gains from it, Im going to do this starting tomorrow for about 6 weeks and see what happens
