Paramount S&C

Olympic Lifting, Weightlifting
Coach
Christopher Douglas

The program will run in 4 week blocks. Every 4 weeks changes will be made to certain but not all exercise selections and rep schemes.
Week 1 base, week 2 building, week 3 deload, week 4 heavier (not heaviest)
Block 1 will be lighter on the Snatch/C&J variations, really focusing on technique not heavy weights.
Block 2 will shift to slightly heavier weights but not maximal. You will start to be more challenged on the squats and deadlifts
Block 3 will push towards more classic lift variations and prepping for a test out day or meet. Squats will be tested in the weeks leading up to the end. 

The goal of the squats is to build overall volume each week, the rep scheme doesn't have to be exact same weight across as long as the overall volume increases weekly. Each week either doing a higher peak set or pushing the threshold number up slightly.

The Snatch Deadlift Ladder will go for 6 weeks with no deload. Trust the process and respect the program, you will get stronger. In week 7 we will replace Snatch DL with a Clean Deadlift ladder for the final 6 weeks.
