i do OL on seperate day then powerlifts like the squat and RDL bench etc, should i do the major lifts all in a given session? i’m afraid i wont perform as well if i do OLs followed by a squat.
From this and some of your other posts it seems as if you are overly concerned about your weight room numbers. Cleans shouldn’t have a major effect on your other lifts. In fact every successful Olympic weightlifting routine I’ve seen combines OLs with strength lifts (squats) in the same session…….and these people are weightlifters (who would actually have a reason to be concerned about not being able to handle maximal loads in a session) and you are a track athlete! Even most track programs use OLs and strength lifts in the same session.
