Q&A: Powerlifters incorporating Olympic Lifting | Brad Gillingham

Do powerlifters ever incorporate Olympic lifts into their training cycle?  And if so, how do you program them in?

I have always included power cleans into my training, but one of the real turning points in my strength development happened in the late 90’s when an Olympic Lifting Coach convinced me to add in more of the Olympic training lifts into my training. At this point I started to program in  Romanian deadlifts (RDLs), front squats, light snatches and overhead squats into my deadlift and back training sessions. These lifts really helped me develop the back and leg strength necessary to pull 10 of my IPF World Record Deadlifts.
