Hi, just started ABBH and I've got some questions. I really like the methodology behind it and the simplicity. BTW I'm a little over 6' and 172lb, strong legs but chest is a bit behind (I squat 300-350 in sets and bench about 180-185 max)
I’m a beginner technically and I have no doubt I’ll get great gains with the program (and I’m eating enough)…my goal is hypertrophy with good strength gains.
My questions are - on the day I do deadlifts, can I do half of them with shrugs at the end of the DL? Or is there a better way to incorporate trap work into the program if one wishes, or do I not need it at all?
I’ve seen a flipped version of ABBH that I THINK uses inclines for the second 23 days, but I can’t find it. Anyone tried inclines during ABBH, and for that matter does anyone have a link to the 23 day continuation of ABBH part one? My lower pecs are already ahead of my upper chest/shoulders is the reason I ask.
And finally, anyone have an easy way to incorporate some old school training (specifically sandbag work, tractor flipping, car pushing, sled dragging, and sledgehammer work) into ABBH? I know it isnt necessary but I plan on doing ABBH for about the next month and a half or two months, so I’d like a little bit of spice in the mix.
Opinions are appreciated, and like I said I expect great gains without any tweaking, but it would be helpful if someone with more experience would give some input.
