This is Day 1 of a 10 week Strength Cycle from Catalyst Athletics (wfs). It starts on April 13th if you want to go back and take a look. I missed yesterday, so I combined yesterday and today's wod to come up with this.
Hopefully I can fight my severe case of 'icantstickwithaprogramitis' and follow this for the full 10 weeks. Only time will tell. I need to write up some goals for OL. This year's Olympic Lifting goals are to Clean and Jerk 225 and to Snatch my bodyweight. That might be a wee bit aggressive for 10 weeks.
Looking forward to this period of Olympic Weight Lifting specialization. I believe it's probably a must for everyone to take some time at one point in their crossfit 'career' and focus on OL. It doesn't have to be this much of a specialized focus, but it needs to happen at some point. They are simply that important. At least thats my story and I'm sticking to it. Go get your O-Lift on!
