Basically I’ve always made an excuse for not achieving my goals. I think more recently I’ve been reading way too many articles online. It’s been an overload of information. But MOST importantly, I haven’t STUCK to my plan from the beginning of the year. Haven’t necessarily program hopped, but have changed the program which is just as bad. After reading through tons of logs on this site the one thing I’ve noticed is the guys with the results, besides putting in the work, they DO NOT change their program.
My primary objective is getting good at the Olympic lifts. While working on that the biggest factor is to get my squat strength up and get strong overall.
I’m going to go with a LP type of progression for now. But I have it setup that if I completely stall, I will jump right into 531 programming for my major lifts.
