SO I decided to look into the infamous “Colorado Experiment” about 7 weeks ago. After reading everything I could on it I designed the following program:
Certain Elements are also taken from Sheiko
2 Workouts a week, Tuesday/Saturday
Tuesday - POWER workout
Bench - 3x8 90%, 3x6 75%, 3x5 50%, 3x5 35%
Squat - 3x8 90%, 3x6 50%, 3x5 50%, 3x5 35%
Deadlift - 3x5 90%, 3x6 75%, 3x5 50%, 3x5 35%
All lifts are down with explosive power, then a slow negative.
Saturday - FOCUS workout
Weighted Reverse Sit ups
Military Press Machine (or dumbells)
Curls with sissy bar
4000-5000 cals a day
I’m heavy on the protein, with a focus on natural sources like chicken and beef. I’m not freaking out about carbs and I probably have 20% of my diet in them
Starting Weight - 197lbs
Starting Body Fat - 20%
Starting Bench - 235
Starting Squat - 250
Starting Deadlift - 310
After 6 weeks
Weight - 209
Body Fat - 20%
Bench - 285
Squat - 350
Deadlift - 455
I was a total doubter, but dear god have i seen the light!
For the first time my fiancee looked at me and said “Jesus, you’re getting BIG!”. My pants are getting tight in the thighs, shirts tight in the chest/arms.
I guess the idea of monger recovery was right. Not right for everyone, but it really has been working for me.
