New Program for Advanced Athletes Only

I have a new program starting today. Normally, I don’t like to segregate people and say that only certain folks can do a program, but this one is different.

I’ve been toying with the idea of a Strong Endurance type program, but I didn’t know how I wanted to integrate it into our normal programming. Then Pavel came out with the “Quick and Dead” book last week and it helped me organize my thoughts. One thing he discusses is that the Q&D program really only works for advanced athletes. So that’s why we’re going to have a little testing to progress into the Q&D programs.

But don’t worry, I’m giving you S&S as a stepping stone into Q&D.

Once you have a good 1A swing, you can choose to do the S&S program. I think that’s everyone in all of my classes. I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t have a good 1A swing right now. Once you reach the “Simple” standard, you may progress into Q&D I, and then once you can pass a 5:00 snatch test you can do Q&D II.

I’m purposely being a little vague in what all of this means because I want to respect Pavel’s IP and not repost everything here. But we can talk about it in class. The posted program below may not make perfect sense, but that’s okay, you’ll know what it all means when we chat.

I have 3 months of this written up, I’m going to do it and I hope a bunch of my advanced athletes will do it - particularly my masters athletes who could use the mitochondrial biogenesis to stave off aging. If the popularity drops off, I’ll quit posting it. If everyone loves it, I’ll keep it up indefinitely.
