When I coached at California Strength we got into the habit of reserving Fridays for the competitive lifts only. We did a lot of other stuff during the week, but always went heavy on the snatch and clean and jerk on Friday afternoon. I continued that practise at MDUSA, and by then it had become an institution with lifters all over the USA adopting the practice of reserving Friday afternoons for doing the competitive lifts with as much weight as possible.
I am going to continue this tradition with my new team, Pathos Barbell Club. Today marks our very first MAX OUT FRIDAY, the most exiting workout of the week!
