Layer Template Question


#1

CT,
I've been using the layer system for a long time now and have had great success. I was wondering how you felt about multiple lifts on the same day. I've only got 4 days a week to train and have always done well w higher volume. Something like this:

1)
Bench: 3rm; 100%3rm x 10 singles; 3 extended sets @80%
High Pull layers

2)
Squat layers
Ab work

3)
Military Press layers
High Pulls layers

4)
Deadlift layers
Ab work

Thanks!

That’s fairly smart, putting 2 lifts only on upper body days. With the bench press I wouldn’t do a full layer with the high pulls, something like 3 x 3 then 3 x 6
