Every time you complete Workout A then add a total of 2.5 lb to the bar for the next workout. If 2.5 lb is too light you can increase by 5 lb at a time. [/tabl]

What if I am stalling?

There shouldn’t be any stalls in this phase of training. If you’re stuck you either started to heavy or have form faults. You likely know which one it is. If it’s too heavy drop weight by 10% and start over from there. If you believe it’s the form faults you’ll need to do your due diligence and correct them. These nuances of form correction for the Olympic lifts are beyond the scope of the program. Your best resource for this will be a coach at your local box. If that is unavailable record your movement from the side and spend some time on youtube reviewing the proper technique.

Once you surpass this level, mark this lesson as complete and go to the Intermediate Push Press lesson.
