I'm considering London myself. I have a little coaching in the oly lifts, and I've been watching some youtube videos. I'm prepared to work as hard as needed for the next 7-14 hours to make my dream come true. Anyone have any advice I can ignore, I mean use?

You should try the "Exponential Progression" programming that Matthew Scwartz mentioned in one of those threads. You'll have a 200kg snatch by yesterday. Also if you supplement that programming with 20 UB c**k-punches for time each morning, your conditioning will make you the best exerciser on the planet.

Didn't realize we had a tennis pro in our midst (Wimbledon)!

The Olympics. I know.

once you get out of bootcamp, if you do want to keep training with such high volume, check out some of the programs out there that are geared towards that. then you can still get in strength plus work capacity plus endurance, and still follow smart programming. Miltary Athlete and Sealfit are geared toward military stuff. crossfit endurance is another good option. you can also check out the recommend workouts put out by the military for people to follow to get ready for spec ops training. here is the ones for spec ops Army and BUDS for the seals...

http://www.sealswcc.com/navy-seals-buds-prep-docs.aspx (WFS)

and there are tons of other great websites and resources out there. for now just get through boot camp, get to a unit, get a normal schedule, and then come back and we can all talk more. good luck in your training.
