About The Program

Primary Objectives:

  • Improve your Snatch
  • Improve your Clean and Jerk

Secondary Objectives:

  • Increase upward rotation of the scapula
  • Increase functional rotator cuff strength
  • Improve overhead position
  • Increase hip strength and mobility
  • Increase core strength
  • Improve your Overhead Squat

Important:

The Bulletproof Olympic Lifting program does not replace your existing Olympic or strength training program.

Bulletproof programs supplement your existing training to get the most out of all that strength you’re building.

The Program

  • 13 weeks of training**
  • Weeks 1 and 10 are test and re-test
  • 4 “highly encouraged” Strength Balance and 2 optional For Quality sessions per week
  • Each session should take less than 20 minutes

**if you do 6 sessions per week.

Note: you do not have to do 6 sessions per week. Many of our athletes do 4 per week. Don’t worry, the system keeps track of where you’re at in the program.

Equipment Needed

Your local gym probably has enough equipment to get you through the program. If you are a garage warrior or go to a small gym with limited equipment you should keep reading.

We break equipment needs into 3 groups.

1. Essential

  • Barbell and weights
  • Squat rack
  • Assorted dumbbells or kettlebells (weights and number depend on how strong you are)
  • Something to step up on. I use a Rogue Wooden Plyo Box with 20″, 24″ and 30″ sides.
  • A pull-up bar
  • 6 foot (approx) length of PVC pipe
  • Something heavy to carry. You can probably get away with heavy kettlebells and dumbbells but Farmer Carry Handles are really nice if you can get your hands on some.

Note: if you really want to do the program you can make it work with very little. I did Bulletproof Legs and Bulletproof Shoulders using only the following:

  • 50 lb and 70 lb sandbag
  • 36 lb, 55 lb and 70 lb kettlebell
  • Rogue Plyo Box
  • 6 foot (approx) length of PVC pipe

2. Nice to have

  • Farmer Carry Handles: for real. They are a good investment.

3. Lotto winner

  • Yoke
  • Axle
  • Assault Bike
  • Rower
  • Bentley. Why not? You won the lotto.
When should I do Bulletproof workouts?

The Bulletproof Olympic Lifting workouts should be done before you workout.

They are an amazing warmup and shouldn’t interfere with your normal routine.

Question:

I can only do them after I workout. Is that okay or will I die?
Answer: It’s best to do them beforehand but if you have to do them after you workout or in a separate session that’s ok.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Does Bulletproof Olympic replace my existing Olympic Lifting program?

Answer: Nope. You should do Bulletproof Olympic before your other barbell work. Think of it as an amazing warmup that makes you stronger, more mobile, better balanced and (possibly) better looking.

Question: Can I do Bulletproof Olympic with another Bulletproof Program?

Answer: Yes. Bulletproof Olympic goes great with BulletproofRx Back Max or BulletproofRx Ankles.

Question: How is Bulletproof Olympic different from other Bulletproof Programs?

Answer: The Olympic program is focused on performing specific lifts more efficiently and with less risk of injury.

Most Bulletproof Programs are focused on improving function in a specific joint or area of the body.
