It has been a few years since I have done this challenge and I’ve forgotten some of the details but I’m looking forward to it again and have a few questions.
5s progression- was thinking i used 5s progression for main lifts when I ran it after advice or seeing Jim recommend that somewhere. Is 5s progression advisable for main lift?
Assistance Work Calculations - not sure why i’m second guessing myself here but I believe I remember increasing training max twice and the 60% assistance and 70% assistance being calculated off of the subsequent increased training maxes, correct?
Deload Weeks- 2 deload weeks, correct? I after the 3 weeks of assistance at 50% and 1 after the 3 weeks of assistance at 60% and before the final 3 weeks at 70%?
Deload Amount- I know that 3x10 assistance is recommended. Should the percentage assistance be calculated as a percent of the deload main lift amount? Or should the percentage assistance used for 3x10 be at the same amount as used in the first 3 weeks of the cycle?
Thanks for any/ all advice!
