    You're not going to be able to do power cleans after benching and squating. I tried to power clean after benching on Friday, and my form was complete crap with only the bar. It's a very technical lift, so do it first, and probably only once a week.

    Also, I don't think it's a good idea to squat 3 times a week. Maybe rotate some stuff around to make it work with twice a week.

    Bako- good point about the power cleans but as for the squating the weight is going to be signifigantly lower on wednesdays and will be ramped on fridays so I think it will be alright with a day of rest in between.

    Ecfootball- I haven't tried this routine but im most likely going to start it today.
