glad you agree

for the first time in my wrestling career, i now have a lifting coach and team lifts along with it - unfortunate, since his workouts are all hi-volume, lo-intensity supersets and if anything i'm figuring they'll just take away from my big lifts, since i don't think i want to squat heavy one day and then have - as his program dictates - 4x20 squats that night.

i'm thinking about allowing, if i need to, for this scenario (tell me your thoughts) - keep the heavy pressing day on monday and the heavy squatting day on thursday, dropping the hip mobility that week. or, maybe a better answer would be: squat AND bench heavy on monday with one assistance lift for each, then hit my usual wednesday lift on wed/thurs.

thoughts?

You can just do your mobility work in the fom of mobility warmups before you workout. Then you can augement that, at home if need be, any time that's convenient. You should be able, once you get all the movements down, to do your warmups in about 10 minutes, all told. Unless you have some special needs and have to throw in a few extra moves.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

fair enough. in that case, if i were going to maintain that 2-day split, maybe heavy pressing/squatting as before, and power moves on the other day? what i have up there is leaning more towards power already anyway (c+j, etc.)

LOL, can you lay out what you are talking about. My brain is tired and I'm confused

BTW, as far as the whole question of what single leg to do or not to do...just put one in for a little while and then switch to another if you don't want to do both. I'd honestly vote for single leg squats over static split squats for a wrestler though...

why? split squats are a fairly good mimic of what a wrestler stance looks like, and while i know it's not always best to exactly mimic a motion, i don't see what single leg squats offer... not trying to argue but i'm just not sure what you mean.
