    I have dabbled and been coached in australia by the assistant coach of strength and conditioning at the australian institute of sport. nothing serious or long term.

    I Currently lack the flexabilty for the sport.....but it is something i want to get back into. Once i can squat somwhere near 800lbs(many years away) i will probably switch over....or be involved with both sports.

    I sort of want to be like whats his name.....shane hamman (dont knowe how to spell it) He seems to be doing very well for an ex PLer

    please dont ask me about weights! I have never competed or maxed out on OL

    yes it is fun....but hard work. It gave me a run for my money and taught me some discipline

    15yrs? thats pretty awsome. Iam still fairly new to the sport. I have been doing olympic lifts for along time just never a full board olympic routine. My goals are to clean 315 and snatch bodyweight. Clean has a chance but it will be tough to snatch my bodyweight of 250lbs and iam still growing lol..hopfully i wont outgrow my abilities. Iam about to invest in Dreschlers book... right now iam reading Mel Siffs SuperTraining and hope to get his FF soon. Both have helped alot with knowledge and a better understand of what we do.

    I referenced quite a few other things at the bottom of the snatch sticky.

    Day 1:

    Snatch
    Powerclean
    Jerk From Rack
    Front Squat
    SLDL
    Military Press
    Med Ball Explosive drill
    Back Raises

    Day 2:

    Clean
    Power Snatch
    Clean Pull
    Back squats
    Bench Press
    Sit ups
    Glut ham Raise

    Day 3:

    Snatch from Knee
    Clean and Jerk
    Snatch Pull
    Front Squat
    Deadlifts
    Crunches
    weighted GPP
    Step ups

    I normally do a short cycle of a few unweighted GPP exercies to get a good active stretch. I also do alot of varrying.. this is just the basic starting point.

    Good. Any lighter days to improve technique as well as speed recovery? This can also be done for GPP.

    I do alot of GPP work.. iam actually a fanatic when it comes to GPP just have to stop myself from over doing it sometimes. As far as training for technique and stuff.. i normally do that during my session. I think once iam outta HS i will beable to do it.. its also very hard to do when i work most of the time 5 days a wk 9-10hrs a day.

    I will amost always perform a second workout later in the day, working on specific weak points but with much lighter weights. For example, if my overall shoulder strength is not where it should be, and I wish to work on my snatch tecnique, I will bang out a quick workout in the 60-70% range, 8-10 sets of 2-3 reps with power snatches superset with snatch grip press behind the neck. On days where I am particularly in a hurry, I will sometimes alternate the repetitions, power snatching the first rep, lower into SGPBN, press, and lower to starting position, and repeat for three reps, 8 - 10 sets.
