High Volume Oly Training

Hey everybody, I have been reading a lot about high volume training lately, and I was hoping to use it for O-lifting, as I find I enjoy it more than anything else in the weight room.
I know the first comment is to make sure I have a good coach, but that is not really what this is about.
Here is what I was thinking...
Monday: Backsquat 3x5, Snatch/Power Snatch
Tuesday: Power Clean/C&J, Short heavy met-con
Wednesday: Front Squat, Sprinting/Met-con
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Backsquat 3x5, Snatch, C&J
Saturday: Met-con
Sunday: Rest
For the front squats, snatches and cleans, I was thinking I would do heavy singles, doubles and triples.
Obviously I would tweak according to how I feel the program is affecting me, but I thought this was not a terrible program. Also, for the sprinting I would switch it for met-cons sometimes.
Any suggestions, let me know, thanks!

Re: High Volume Oly Training

Is there any reason that you choose not to program any upper body ME lifts?

Re: High Volume Oly Training

Where's the volume? That seems like a low-volume program to me.

Re: High Volume Oly Training

I was just considering that.
I was contemplating adding bench, but an overhead press would make more sense.
I suppose I just overlooked them, it was not an intentional thing, that is why I posted this here. Thanks!
I think I will add a ME OHP on Wednesday...
Thoughts?

Lots of volume in the actual lifts, was what I was thinking.
Not too many movements, but lots of repetitions, I should have clarified!

Depending on how many sets of doubles/singles of the olifts you're doing, this isn't what most would consider high volume olifting.

I guess the question would be, "what are your goals?"

Before you consider doing heavy singles, doubles, triples you really should consider good coaching for a solid foundation.

Re: High Volume Oly Training

Check out some of these programs Coach Burgener has posted on his website:

http://www.mikesgym.org/programs/index.php (w/f/s)

He's got a 23 day Bulgarian, a high-volume squatting, a 12 week Oly Cycle, etc.

Re: High Volume Oly Training

I would consider what I do lower to mid volume. Here was a recent day:

Warmup
Build up to a 1RM Box Squat, did 5 reps over 90% of former 1RM before hitting new PR
OHS 1, 1, 1
Clean Deadlift with "boost" 5 x 2
Clean High Pulls 5 x 1
Rack Jerk 3/Split Jerk 2 x 5
Rack Jerk 1/Split Jerk 1 work up to 1RM. Took 5 singles.

Afternoon: Crossfit WOD
