Stripped the program down further at the weekend. Ditched the lifts from the hang, apart from 3 triples as warmups, because they suck and overcomplicate things. Cut each cycle down to 3 weeks - 3s, 2s, 1s. No set weights, just a range within which to work, and no fixed number of sets, just a range depending on how things go on the day, based on Prilepin's table. The idea is to get some quality work in but still come out of a session feeling fresh rather than destroyed, something both Dan John and Tommy Kono argue in favour of. Still doing ladders for squats and presses.
Still light, but up on last week. Solid volume in a short space of time.
4-8 triples between 50kg and 56kg, optimum 6 sets.
Good session. Light weights but technically not bad at all. Actually feels like the snatch balances are starting to pay off already. Stayed at the low end of the range seeing as it was the first session.
Run in the morning, just for Baldy.
“Begin at the beginning,” the King said gravely, “and go on till you come to the end. Then stop.”
