Oh, I didn't realize Kono is still doing lectures! And thanks for the suggestion anyway, Tank. It's a good idea and I'm always open to suggestions, so fire away. It has crossed my mind that once I get way into this program and am in better shape overall/more flexible, etc. I may morph Wednesday's C+P followed by front squats into just doing full squat cleans and see what happens.

Thanks, buddy!

Elijah, I don't remember where I read it, but Wendler did invent a variation that included singles. He did them in the first week, something like 5x 3, plus a few singles, then the second week is 5x 5, third is 5/3/1. I'll try and find it again. I will want to hit some singles at some point, so might as well see how to fit them in. I think your idea would work too. It sounds reasonable.

Thanks for the tip, too! Getting stronger every week is key, no doubt. Hopefully this time next year I'm hitting a 400 squat. We'll see.

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
