Help with Picking the Right Template

Didn’t you post almost the exact same question yesterday? And received several responses from people?

By the people on here who told you it was bad literally this morning?

Again, by several people within the past 24 hours.

What does this mean? They either went up, or went down. Did you get stronger? Could you lift more weight or do more reps with a certain weight than you could at some point before this? If yes, you got stronger. And how long did you try it? I’d say do it for 3 months at least. Honestly probably longer. Like you’ve been told several times already, there’s tons of different templates that have all been shown to help people meet their goals. Pick one and follow it.

You keep mentioning form issues…with what? While the bench press and overhead press require focus on form, I’ve never seen anyone be completely unable to fix issues with those lifts if they just pay attention.

So I’m guessing your form issue is with the squat or deadlift? That’s usually just a matter of mobility and/or strength. Do Joe DeFranco’s Agile 8:

Do it 2-3 times a day, every day, for 2-3 weeks, then back down to once a day, every day, forever.

If you still have issues with your form, then you’re too weak to hold your body in whatever place it needs to be during the lift. I’m gonna guess your back is rounding - any other issue like stance, hand placement, breathing, etc. doesn’t really require any work besides simply paying attention to what works for you.

Strengthening your posterior chain and possibly the abs should fix this. So do movemens that hit the hamstrings, glutes, lower back and abdominals. You sound like you’ve done enough to know what will work for this, and if you don’t, there’s tons and tons and tons of articles and forums on this website to help you.

If it’s a no go, then why are you doing it? I myself said this morning when you do 5/3/1 you can literally do 3 sets of a movement than call it a day. 3 sets (+ warmups) is honestly nothing. Then I sent you a program that takes a half hour, two days a week. That’s basically the least amount of work you can do - 1 hour of lifting in a 168 hour week. If you can’t spend less than 1% of your week getting stronger, you’re out of luck.

You just have these laying around? Then what are the questions for?

If you see some you like and that sound like you’d enjoy and would progress on, then just DO THEM!!!

Then add it in.
