    I have been experimenting with a circuit for preparation that is one arm swings, jumping jacks with dumbells, and squat into pushpress with dumbells. I use a hear-rate monitor. I stop the set at 85% and start the next exercise at 60%. It was great for conditioning the whole shoulder complex especially.

    I was only squatting twice, and not heavy. You might try 20 secs on and 40 sec off, if you don't want to bother with HR monitor.

    you guys think its ok to add a routine like this after a oly lift routine?
    brb snatch,pulls,cnj,squat


    i.e. i squat for triples or doubles up to 90%
    then i ll squat for 4 sets of ten reps on 40 or 50 kg,is it productive?

    Usually 50%1RM is a minimum for strength exercises. For weightlifting it is more like 60%.

    Using a variant to hit a weak point for high volume/reps is a good idea too. If the quads are weak you could do front or zercher squats on a slant board. For adductors and glutes, extra wide squats are good. 4 sets of 10 would be good here. Get the work in, but don't push your limits.
