    Which RKC's are MS in the snatch? I follow GS pretty closely, and this would be big news. Huge, actually. Who did these numbers? Thanks.

    5-6 days a week is best.
    I agree you should get a coach, even if you have an online coach for just a month or so. You want to make sure your technique is solid.

    as a long cycle specialist, I'd like to suggest getting a second 24kg. Double kb work is quite a bit more difficult than single, and much more time efficient.

    There are a couple ways to approach this.
    I've found that regular GS work eliminates (at least for me) the need for other ballistic work for GPP. So I would not do barbell jerks or power cleans. ...
