    Lazy bro-loading progression loads for both snatch and cj

    Dear collegues,

    a minimal weight training sessions usually contains, at least, three exercises.

    For each one of these exercises they, again, usually require some kind of progression, i.e., unloading the bar is a common act to perform them.

    For example:
    1) exercise #1 with load x is performed
    2) exercise #1 with load x+10 is performed
    3) exercise #1 with load x+20 is performed
    4) exercise #2 with load x is performed
    5) exercise #2 with load x+15 is performed
    6) exercise #2 with load x+30 is performed

    Likewise, if the training session covers snatch and cj, all exercises usually requires unloading the bar.

    What is the harm for someone who decides to perform:

    1) exercise #1 and #2 with load x
    2) exercise #1 with load x+10
    3) exercise #2 with load x+15
    4) exercise #1 with load x+20
    5) exercise #2 with load x+30

    I don't really follow you. Are you taking about doing a set of snatches and then a set of c&j with the same weight? Just alternating?

    snatch and c&j can also be considered in my question.

    Something like:
    1) snatch and #2 with load x
    2) snatch with load x+10
    3) c&j with load x+15
    4) snatch with load x+20
    5) c&j with load x+30
    6) c&j with load x+40

    It would be something like "do not unload the bar to execute c&j after your snatch session".

    I ask this because the usual way to train is to perform snatches until, let´s say, heavy singles. After this, the bar is fully unloaded and the warm ups for the c&j are started.
    In a contrary way, I would be interested to do my snatches simultaneously with the c&j warm ups until I reach some load that is executed only with c&j (which is the 'lazy' part)

    sounds like something a CFer would do.

    It would work for training with moderate weights. For heavy weights, it would not be good for coordination to do a different exercise just before a heavy lift. You don't need to unload the bar all the way to move on to the c&j. Since you are already physically warm, you can start with 60% and proceed quickly as long as the movement feels good.
