Good stuff, Tim!

As you know i am a big fan of the Javorek stuff. I'll give the other link a browse as well. Knowing you, it's probably right up my alley as well.

Cheers,
Hoister

Mattz, Hand and thigh lifts are like partial deadlifts with a specific hand placement (i.e. on the thighs like the name implies). However, depending on the situation, the apparatus can vary. In the usawa, they have their specific rules and apparatus, while other org's have their own. I have competed...

Thought i would update everyone who is curious on my routine as of late. I have dropped my previous a.m. strength sessions in exchange for the following progressive workout. I do this each morning, Mon - Fri for two weeks, taking one week off and repeating. I vary the weight progressions as i feel, ...

Yeah - i am half in/half out as well on the KB's. I've used them with swings, renegade rows and farmers walks/waiters walks. Other than than they only really seem to be effective for ripping and tearing away at my palms when i've used them for conventional KB work ! ! ! I wouldn't call them useless,...

Point taken as well - now that you elaborated on the 100kg press vs 50kg press.

Agreed.

The athlete who can press 100 kg will out punch the athlete who can only press 50 kg. That is a fact. Not entirely true, unless both competitors are strapped to aboard save for thier punching arm and are having a jabbing contest. True effective punching power comes from the legs, hips, through the ...

I think flexibility only comes into play in determining HOW close one can move their grip. The mechanics of the snatch, whether muscle or full snatches, don't really change with the grip width. Its just a matter of getting used to the "tweek" in technique. Learning to catch the snatch with one grip ...

Where would you place the snatch or hang snatch in a legs/push/pull split program? Would it be advisable to perform snatches late in ones workout after pressing or pulling movements, or would this be asking for a shoulder injury? I think this would matter based on the load you are using for snatches...

To Leif and All,

Please accept my apology - sometimes my passion about certain things sends me off on a tangent.

For the future I will do a better job of focusing on the question asked, rather than the answers given.

Good luck, Leif - let us know how it works out for you.

I guess i am wrong because i don't buy into bompa, fleck, etc etc? I guess the fact the fact that i pull well over 500 in competition at 5'8"/180lbs means nothing. I guess that pulling 80-95% of that 5 days a week without injury, burnout, etc means nothing. All i am saying is that not everything eve...

I was referring to frequency - the question asked was about frequency.
