Interesting ideas. I would go the A/B route at least until you get your form down because as you say, the weights will be relatively light and recovery a bit easier. Just as important though is the increased frequency will speed up getting your form better, too.

I would also go through the progression each day too. Jump shrugs, high pulls, hang cleans, then on to cleans from floor or full cleans. Lightish weights, plenty of volume on the movements. Same for Snatch.

Then do you powerlifts, squat every day except deadlift day, alternate bench and press (with an easier press day after the heavier bench day), alt. rows and deadlifts, something like that.

Good luck, buddy! Ryano is right, though, in that coaching is probably the best way to go, but if that's not possible, you can still learn a lot on your own. Just don't sacrifice form for weight for quite a while. I made that mistake and had to start over. Don't waste that time, be precise from the start and grow slow at first. My.02

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
