Re: Best way to "fit" power cleans into a 531 strength + crossfit wod program
I've been adding power cleans (5x3, 15x1 on the minute) before dead-lifts. The idea is that the cleans requre more technique and are also considerably lighter than DL's, thus the preference to do them when fresh and they serve as a reasonable warmup for the DL's, since it is a similar pulling movement. Try moving them to DL day if you think they're affecting your BS.
I've also been adding power snatches (7x2, 15x1 on the minute) before squats. Again, they are so light in comparison to the squats that I don't really notice any fatigue when doing my squats. But then, my snatches aren't the strongest.
