Week 1

This will be a 5-week cycle and will peak for max snatch and CJ on the weekend of October 2-3. These workouts will have quite a few exercises, so stay on task and keep moving.

If your snatch/clean maxes are limited significantly by technique, the prescribed weights for
snatch/clean pulls/deadlifts will be too light. Move these up accordingly with the understanding that pulls must be fast at the top, and both pulls and deadlifts MUST be performed with perfect snatch/clean pulling positions and postures.

Add ab work at least 3 days each week at the end of the workouts. Rotate through flexion, lateral flexion, rotation and static stabilization exercises.
