Re: Best way to "fit" power cleans into a 531 strength + crossfit wod program

That's where I'm coming from with that idea, thoughts?
In that case, sounds reasonable for working your front squats. In fact, you could even do something like 1 SC + 3-5 FS. Or you could do front squats out of the rack as assistance work for your back squats. Or you could sub FS for BS every other cycle. One of the beauties of 531 is you can follow the template and tweak it to meet your goals, either by subbing for a major lift or through the assistance work.
