Christian Thibaudeau, I have been following your Best Damn Workout Plan for Natural Lifters and it is going extremely well for me. I overall feel better on it, my muscles are holding pumps, and Ive actually been making some gains in areas that I have long term healing injuries.
My issue is that I however highly miss doing dynamic speed work, I have been a huge fan in the past of doing speed work with bands westside style and some olympic lifts. ( I know this is not a strength specific program, and I do not mean to deconstruct your program) I am merely trying to make some adaptations to it to fit my personal needs. Plus I always feel refreshed after speed work and feel like a badass doing it, its a big mental happiness workout for me.
So can you tell me how you feel would be the most effective way to add dynamic work to this program. Could I take one of the push days and do banded squats and bench on that day and then continue with your workout, or should I do only dynamic work that day and then do the program for those body parts again after a day of rest? If i made that change would I benefit in doing deadlifts and cleans on the leg push day as well?
Or maybe should I do just a few sets of dynamic work each workout before the main program lifts?
Additionally and more specifically if I wanted to add the dynamic work and pick one movement to concentrate on strength say deadlift? how would I set up the deadlift training days as the reps and sets would likely change as well since it would be power oriented for that movement.
Thank you for this program, advice, and all your articles.
