Programming

I have managed to get access to a good oly lifting coach and gym and can only go there twice a week though (tues & wed).

I also want to continue with my CF workouts. How would I best fit this all in?

I was thinking do the 3 on 1 off but ensure a rest day the day before the oly lifting and a day after?

I don't really want to follow the performance menu WOD atm as I am still learning the oly lifts and not really comfortable performing them in my garage alone.

Re: Programming

Why not just do two or three work outs of the day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?

Yep 2/1/3/1 would work to suit your needs (That's what PMenu runs off of as well). Make sure you get some skill work in for those (like burgener warmup, etc.) on the other 3 days.

Re: Programming

If you plan to follow the advice of "your coach", then "your coach" should guide you.


If you're just taking some lessons or instructions in Oly lifting, then the above advice from the others is very sound.

Re: Programming

I am following the advice of "my coach" by asking the question as he is unfamiliar with CF. whilst he is experienced with olympic lifting and training olympic athletes he hasn't had anyone wanting to do CF at the same time nor had he heard of it.

He didn't want to ill advise me so told me to seek advice from people who do CF about how best to combine the 2.

As you said the advice I got was good.
