re-peaking for lifting meet 

Dear Professor Verkhoshansky,

I hope this post finds you doing well.

This question pertains to how to "retrain" for an Olympic weightlifting meet that is one month following the meet I was originally training for. Please allow me to explain. Due to an airline cancelation this weekend I missed our National Masters Championships (M55 94Kg) and have to qualify for the Worlds at another meet which is May 3. Since I was training to peak for April 5th, I am asking for advice on how to structure training to "re-peak" on May 3rd. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much,

Mr. Jan DeBenedetto

Dear Mr. Jan DeBenedetto

sorry if I give you my answer with delay in relation to your needs.

It’s really a big problem to structure your training to “re-peak”, especially if I don’t know you and your preceding training plan.

I thing that in this situation could be only one option: to try to maintain the sport form for all April using the low volume of the high intensity explosive exercises. The low volume means: a few exercises, low sets number and  low number of training sessions in a week.

I think that this kind of training could be similar to the following training session that could be carried out non more than 2 times a week:

1)      2 series of 10 Depth jump from 0.75 m height;

2)      2-3 sets of Power Snatch with the 70-90% weight.

Re: re-peaking for lifting meet 

Dear Dr. Verkhoshansky,

Thank you for your considered thoughts on the subject. I will put them into action with tomorrows workout.

If I do well enough to qualify for the world Masters Championships at the end of September I would love to get some advice from you as to how to structure my training from May > September. Right now my lifts seem a bit out of balance in that I power clean 102.5kg yet only power snatch 65, snatch 77kg and jerk 95 kg.

Thank you once again.

Sincerely,

Jan DeBenedett
