I'm hoping to get some insight from you smart people! As you may know, I want to :
1. Do OMOB as prescribed, using no more than 5 lifts/days of training in one week.
2. Train both the deadlift as well as the clean.
Currently, I set up my programming to do Front Squat, Bench, Clean/Deadlift, Military Press, Back Squat. I try to train two days in a row, and take the third off. I most often take a day off between Back Squat and Front Squat day. I have them together because I want to improve/focus on my squatting at the moment. The plan at the moment, is to alternate between deadlifts and cleans from one cycle to the next, because I like both, think both are very beneficial, and need to improve at both.
I've been thinking about a different approach, which I know will break the mold that OMOB creates, but I'm hoping that since I only want to apply this to one day, I'll be forgiven.
I'm thinking, instead of alternating between deads and cleans each cycle, to do the main movement Cleans and the EMOM Deadlifts in cycle 1, and in cycle 2, do the main movement Deadlifts and the EMOM Cleans. That means I'll only increase each movement's weight once I've done it as the main movement(ie once every 2 cycles), and each will go up slower at a steadier pace, but I'll get to keep doing both on a more regular basis.
What do you guys think? Does this approach make sense? Do you think it can work?
