hey mike i know many coaches use the ol's to develop the power output but what if you were only using them to stimulate many muscles without using alot of other lifts during periods of high vol speed work, do you still think it would be necessary to do them three days per week or could you do something like bsq twice week and pc once a week.
I think that would work fine. I've done something similar with some bobsled / skeleton athletes and it worked well. One day they did just full clean and jerks in fairly low volumes. I felt that we could get a lot of bang for our buck by doing the entire competition style lift and that overall strength could be maintained while providing a high level stimuli for the CNS.
