Bulldog: Building Old Man Strength

strength

#2891

For what if’s worth, I find the leader/ anchor 2/1 cycles way too short.
I split my training a little by the weather.
But I like too just build up for 9-10 months. Reset as needed, and when I’m feeling good throw some extra weight on the bar , but not more often than 1x per wave per exercise, usually less like ev 2-3 waves. Then see what I can do at the end of the 9-10waves, unless a little injury pops up ( more than the aches and pains).
I think 531 is not great ,but doable for peaking. I’m sure many would disagree. It’s a framework for me to train.
Just my opinion.

@bulldog9899 how did you get your shoulders so strong!


#2894

A shit ton of BTNP and DB pressing and standing when I was a young lad… not making a joke it built a some what solid foundation.

Ok the oldest is getting over strep throat… Wife is coming down with something also. Wouldn’t you know it I’m starting to feel like ass . Give me a break… I just fully got over a bug from a few weeks ago !


#2905

Hope your feeling better soon, and killing the BTN again

Trap Bar : 335 x 6
DB rows: 40/4 @ SW TR 45
K Rows : 45/3 @ SW TR 55
Seat Band Hamstring curls: 50 total

a few things… Pushing the secondary stuff hard also holding off doing any direct midsection work. Believe that I might have a minor tweak in my lower abdominals.
