my metcons are good but im interested in gaining more strength on all my lifts. so far ive just been throwing in random strength sessions on the different lifts.

ive looked at starting strength by rippletoe, but i want to get my strenght up on more Oly lifts and things like thrusters. any advice on where to look for a program?? thanks.

Re: gaining strength

Start here. This is a very common question. Adjust program to incorporate more Oly lifting.

This question get asked almost daily.

Re: gaining strength

Squat and eat more! Haha..

What is your familiarity with the Oly Lifts?

If you are new I would recommend a beginner technique program that focuses on getting your muscular recruitment down and squat up. A lot of more advanced programs, including a lot of cathletics stuff, have a lot of volume and squatting that could be too much too soon if you are not careful.

That being said, once you have developed a foundation of solid technique and volume, many of those programs are great!
