Hi everyone! Welcome to my latest challenge! Had a busy couple of months, so although I've kept working on my lifting programming, I haven't done a challenge for a while... This challenge is all about trying out new exercise variations and building technique in the olympic lifts, which I have only just started learning I will still be continuing with my regular powerlifting stuff, just adding in some oly skill practice at the beginning and substituting in overhead and front squats more often.

So, I had a battle log back in '11, but since it's been so long and my training has shifted, I thought I'd start a new one. I'm currently following a program from Catalyst Athletics - Jessica's Complex & Competition Cycle, picked because I liked the complexes in the training. (I'm in Week 6) I'll only list my working sets unless someone asks to see my warmup sets. Monday 12/7/15 Exercise Clean & Jerk - 38kg (2+1)x2, 40kg (2+1)x3 High-hang snatch + Snatch - 30kg (1+1)x2, 32kg (1+1)x3 Clean deadlift - 56kg 3x2, 59kg 3x3 Back squat - 61kg x4, 65kg x1, 61kg x4, 67kg x1, 61kg x4, 68kg
So I've been thinking about swapping power cleans in for barbell rows, but I'm a little hesitant to try them without coaching. because the movement is so complex. The instructions in Starting Strength seem to go against everything I know about lifting weights, but Rippetoe obviously has more experience with them then I will ever have, but I've also seen in a couple of places people saying that Rip's version of the Power Clean is wrong. It's the "jump" part that seems weird to me. Am I just overthinking it?
