Oly W4/D2
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about using the Oly Template and Open Gym times to reach various goals. In a nutshell:

– If you want to be the best Oly Lifter you can be: Do ALL of the work, each day, hard and Maybe do 1 CF WOD (under 12 Min) a week.
– Build Muscle and Put on Size: Do Monday, Tuesday, Friday of the Oly along with 2 WODs (Prob Monday, Wednesday – Thursday is a rest day) and make sure you Eat and Eat.
– Get better at Oly Technique: Tuesday, Thursday along with 3-5 WODs a week.
– A specific goal of building, cutting, technique, or competition prep: Come see me and we’ll put something together for you.

Just yesterday Chad Weasley Smith from JTS was on Barbell Shrugged, our template is moderately based on some of his stuff, and a lot of the conversation was about people jumping from program to program. Getting stronger and learning the Competition Lifts takes time. This program is 17 wks long. That’s 4 Months. We are almost 1 month into it. Stick to the template and do the work each day. Trust the program and your work.

Regardless of which path you’re taking prioritize this work ahead of wodding – Not that it has to be done first but like yesterday you should have done the back squats from the Oly and Skipped the WOD front squats. If you’re trying to build muscle then you really can’t do the long fun looking WODs like today’s – it won’t help reach your goals. If you’re trying to build technique you should be watching videos and probably coming to Sunday Open Gyms to work one-on-one with coaches.

8x 2-P Squat Snatch (75% – Hi Hang then Hang)
8x 2-P Power Clean + 2 Push Jerks (75% – Hi Hang then Hang, Both Cleans then Both Jerks)

3×10 Back Extensions Weighted
3×10 Curls (Not a joke, do some DB curls, don’t use momentum)
3×10 KB Flags
