I’ve been doing the “40 Day Program” for the last, well, almost 40 days now. I’ve had great success, and I love lifting almost everyday. The workouts are hard, but not too tough; I really look forward to them.
My squat and overhead press were my weakest points. I’ve gone from 2x5 at 205 to 2x5 at 255 on the squat and 2x5 at 105 to 2x5 at 135 on the overhead press(more importantly, my form has gotten MUCH better on both). I’ve also gone from 2x5 at bodyweight on pullups, to 2x5 at +35.
Anyway, I want to keep going, so I was thinking about just working up to a new one rep max on each lift. So, I’d keep the same lifts, but change it up to 2x3 for the next four or five weeks, and then heavy singles for four or five weeks. Then, maybe pick some new lifts (maybe power cleans or front squats) and start over.
How’s this sound as a plan?
