Eric Cressey Maximum Strength Program


#1

I've been reading Eric's book and really liked it, i been following him for a long time and also reading a lot of his stuff. I noticed it has some many different exercises, i like to stick to a rotuine that don't change much the xercises, just the reps/sets.

But i think Eric has his point cause there is a lot of good exercises but you just can't use em all, but what he does he uses them all in different phases during 16 weeks, i also like the high intensities he uses, 10x2, 8x3... my goal is get STRONGER, jump higher, get faster, if i do it i may add Olympic Lifts i,m 18, Has any body done this program? what y'all think about it?

Personally, I don’t like conjugate methods but lots of folks have had success with it, so if it excites you, go nuts.

Another sort of vote for the conjugate system.

I’m of the opinion it is going to work better for a more advanced lifter, but there’s no reason it can’t work for someone less advanced if it’s run properly.

I think that’s the catch 22 of conjugate training: it will work for anyone if run properly, but running it properly isn’t something everyone can do. You need to know training very well to run a conjugate program properly.
