Once an athlete reaches a certain level of technical mastery the overall volume they encounter in training and the way in which they meet that volume can be manipulated to speed along progress. If it is feasible the first adjustment should be to splitting the days in which the athlete squats into two distinct training sessions. This accomplishes multiple things. First, neither lift is forced to take a secondary role in the training session and be negatively impacted by being preceded by the other. This allows the athlete’s full focus and strength to be used on the required lifting to be done, whether that is squats or the competition lifts. Secondly, it allows a greater range of volume and exercise selection to be programmed in order to work out any individual deficiencies. Twice a day training should be limited to three (3) training days during the week which moves the overall training load from 4 sessions to 7 and in some cases as many as nine (9) per week.
