Hey guys, I really wanted to give this cycle a whirl but there were a few questions I had about some of the weekly workouts. I have the weeks that I have questions about listed below:
Work Up to 85% x 2 reps w/Weight on 3-4â?³ mat. This will be done in non competition stance.
Sumo Grip no Belt 45% x 20 reps (Use straps)
-So what is meant by "non competition stance?" Are they asking me to stick with conventional for week 1?
Block Pull Reps
75% x 3 x 5 sets
82.5% x 3
-Well aware of what a block pull is, but no block height is specified, any recommendations for what that height should be?
Max Effort Dead
Max Single Up to 92.5% standing on a 1â?³ block
-I'm confused. It says 'max effort dead' followed by 'max single up to 92.5%.' So what are they asking for? Am I to make sure I avoid going higher than 92.5% of my deadlift max, except on top of a 1" block?
Speed Deads Comp Stance
70% x 1 x 8 sets
80% x 1 x 2 sets
-Same question that I had for week 1
Max Effort Single w/Weight on 2â?³ Blocks
Try to work up to at least 101% of previous PR
-Is this in reference to my actual previous PR or my PR from week 4 which was a "max effort" day?
-Those are pretty much all the questions I had. The more responses the merrier. Thanks for the input folks.
