Hello Coach, (or those with experience with the layer system) I was advised doing trying some layer work, so I digged and found this version, would it be suitable for me as my main weakness is quads? Also since I don’t have pins, a 2-3 second pause just above sticking point should do it? Thank you

Errrrrrr…this doesn’t even remotely resemble CT’s Layer System.


#3

It’s based on a program I designed for Hawaitunya a few years back


#4

Yes I read her log, it was cool but she was only doing bench/dead and my weakness is the squat so…
And I can’t really do your latest version since I don’t have pins :slight_smile:

Sorry about that. Guess I missed that.
