I would not drop OHP for cleans.

I agree with Swede's recomendation to add cleans at the beginning of the session. If I were to add PC to the session I would start at a 5x3 scheme, and use a light weight to start. Don't increase weight during the sets, just use a single weight. Do this for a few sessions to get a feel for the work.

After a couple of weeks you could start to add a little weight to the last 3 sets, and again see how you feel.


Performing power cleans is the easiest option here. Performing a snatch is exponentially more technical in the proper execution of the lift. Even performing the overhead squat aspect of the lift is hard.

Have you over done overhead squats? I really like doing them, but they will crush your ego with how little weight most people can actually use, when they first start doing them.

I really like incorporating oly lift techniques in my work.
