The Broz Approach??

Coach Broz(Link is WFS, site has some language.)


I'm way too new to Oly, and new to lifting in general, but I'd like to know if any of you have gone this hard and heavy? What do all you brainiacs think about his approach(don't mean that in a sarcastic manner...FYI)?

Def. not the best for general fitness.

If you want to specialize in olympic weightlifting, and you have good technique, and a lot of mental toughness...go ahead and give it a try.

Matt Thomas and Nik Nichols both max out on squats every day, and it seems to work for them in that sense.

I hear that. I'm not too sure where exactly I want to be. GPP is importantish to me, but strength is VERY important. I'm WAY to noob ish to take on that type of volume.... for now.

Definitely an interesting program, but yeah all that maxing out would be unnecessary for you right now. You could do a lot less and get better results.

Re: The Broz Approach??

I don't care for that programming. When he develops an athlete that does anything special on the international level then perhaps his methodology should get more attention... And yes, I know he claims to base it on the Bulgarian system of yesteryear, but the difference is he is not Abadzhiev. I think that man is special and knew when to back athletes off etc. (not to mention he had the pick of the best of the best, burned through tremendous numbers of athletes and so on).

A number of us on here have tried it. I did it for 2 months squatting 90% of my 1RM (squatting 360 pounds every day) and PR'd with 420 pounds at the end of it.

Dave Lipson and Antony Bainbridge have also done it with great success. Once your about 3 weeks into it, it isn't even hard anymore and you barely have to warm up for it and it doesn't interfere with whatever else you have planned for the days workout. Obviously its a bit different to Broz's methodology but I reckon people should give it a shot.
A lot of it is just getting practice at lifting heavy/limit weights..

Right, that is totally different.
