The 12-week training program consists of 3 mesocycles (4 weeks each). This program is designed for a full comprehensive preparation for Olympic weightlifting competitions. Certain goals and tasks are set for each period in order to bring the athlete up to the peak of their preparedness for the competition, step-by-step.
According to the latest scientific research and real-life experience with female athletes, their training process has significant differences from a man’s workout, in terms of the level of achievement in the special preparatory exercises, volume, and intensity of work. In comparison with male athletes, their training program has relevant differences in the structure and dynamics of the training load.
GENERAL PREPARATION PERIODThe main objectives are improving the general and supporting physical development of athletes, increasing the functional systems’ capacity, various technique drills, and working out the elements and phases of competition exercises.
SPECIAL PREPARATION PERIODThis period is intended to provide a high level of preparedness for competition activity by increasing the amount of special preparatory and competition exercises. The training program is focused on the development of power-speed skills, coordination, and special endurance, building on the foundation created during the previous period. More attention is paid to working out the competition technique.
COMPETITION PERIODThe main task here is to maintain and improve the level of special preparedness. Plenty of single high-intensity reps in SNATCH and CLEAN&JERK together with gradually reduced volume in other special exercises helps to bring the athlete to their peak for competition day.
· Intermediate and advanced weightlifters.
