You have to love weightlifting. It is as much art as it is science and sport. These workouts are designed to encourage your growth as a lifter and should be performed with excellence in movement in mind and not the weight on the bar. Stick with it for a 100 days of workouts and see how you feel.


For those of you who want to compete or have the requisite skills and training, you can sign up to follow my own personal cadre of competitive athletes' weightlifting intermediate and advance training programs which post every week.


The terminology is simple: (X/3)4 means do one lift 3 times for 4 sets. For a clean and push press, you may see (X/2+1)4, which means do 2 cleans then 1 push press as your set and perform for 4 sets


Day 16 of 100

How much weight you lift in any particular lift is not as important as a balanced approach to performing each set to completion with good technique.


Snatch Balance: (X/3)4
Halting Snatch Deadlift, Snatch Extension, Snatch High Pull & Snatch: (X/1+1+1+1)4
Hang Power Clean: (X/3)4
