Conjugate Mass Template


#1

What do you guys think of the following template? It's kinda like WS4SB

Day 1: ME Upper
1. ME exercise - work to max triple
2. Main supplemental exercise
3. Medium-low intensity supplemental work

Day 3: RE whole-body
Pick 5-6 basic exercises, do 4x6, 5x3 or 5x5

Day 5: ME Lower
1. ME exercise - work to max 5
2. Main supplemental exercise
3. Medium-low intensity supplemental work

The main supplemental exercises are chosen based on my main upper/lower body weakness (right now for me, that would be triceps and lower back, respectively).

The rest of the ME workout would be pretty much instinctive, hitting whatever else needed to be hit.

I'm going after general strength and muscle-mass here.

Thoughts?

Or, here's an even more crazy idea.

I keep the template above, but structure my ME days along the line of CT's new HSS-100 program.

The ME lift would take the place of the heavy exercise.

Then I'd do a CT super set aimed at the main weakness, as my primary supplemental exercise.

Then I do some low-intensity instinctive training on other body parts.

Then I finish with a 100-rep set on my main weakness again (to really pump it).

GOOD LORD CT's program just came out and allready ppl wanting to change it all around. LOL Not to flame to much,someone had to be the first. I say do your first program or do his. Then after doing both and seeing what each give then maybe take from each.
