Starting up a new log. I feel like the last 6 months of training have been a total waste, and it's time for a fresh start. I made the switch from powerlifting to a (poor) bodybuilding routine that did nothing but get me weaker. It also bored the fuck out of me.
So im making the switch back to powerlifting, and will be starting Chad Smith's Juggernaut method next week. I plan on doing a push/pull in June, where I hope to pull off a 540 deadlift and a 315 bench.
We've all made mistakes in our training and it definitely helps the learning process. Watching how this turns out for you will be awesome, I've been very interested in the Juggernaut Method for a while. Now I just need to see exactly what Josh Bryant has people doing...
Thanks man! Glad you stopped in, just checked out your log and I think it will help me with the first few weeks of figuring out the rep scheme. My buddy and me split the cost of the e-book, and he explained it to me over the phone, so im not 100% on everything.
I'll start doing that, next few weeks arn't to crazy because i have my meet on the 9th though, hopefully we can squeeze out some good PR's after that. I've heard and read some good things about this program, when do you start?
Yeah I just bought the E-book last night and read it at 1 in the morning. I would definitely advise you read the book in its entirety at least once or twice because some of the stuff was kind of confusing at first glance.
I agree it is the same as 5/3/1 in principle, just with longer waves and more reps.
Looks like it worked, that will help you from having to bust out the calculator as much.
Note: The training max adjuster on the spreadsheet is set for 2.5lbs for bench and OHP and 5lbs for the squat and dead so you may have to do some manual calculations there to keep those numbers from going up too fast.
