The Marquis of Queensbury

Essentially we train singles only on the lifts,doing maybe 4 or 5 singles, and 3-6 lifts per session. Then the following session maybe 3-6 differant ones. You never train them all, but usually let what's coming up in a contest dictate how you train. Anyway, experiment and find out what works best, without spending too much time on overuse of sets and reps on any one lift. One year my 2 sons and I spent a summer doing only ONE single each on 8 lifts in prep for the worlds-all 3 of us had the best contest ever!
