Thanks CT for indulging…definitely right about the blitz approach (i don’t have enough stability to stick to a gradual hepburn layer or increase 2.5% poundages every month sort of thing)
Having said that, a program of yours that sort of flew under the radar but is actually incredible is the 20 minute muscle builder. Especially the pairing of two compound lifts
Wondering if you could guide me with a similar routine (Perhaps using bestdamn body part split) - i acutlaly love best damn’s split layout but CANNOT handle the hitting failure intensity. I don’t know…i have to ramp up in 5’s and mentally hate having a few prep sets then going “all-out”.
Do you have any recommendations like 2 compounds per day (full body/best damn template) but using more repeated bout effect or a “ramping” & back off (like 20 minute muscle builder)?
Just throwing this out there:
Bench 8x6x4 wave back off EMOM or clusters or rep work
Front squat 7/5/3 waves
Repeat 6 times a week (other days would be different waves…some days would just be standard ramp to 3RM or 5RM training max). Could also be done with push/pull
I guess basically best damn but just more frequency on big lifts (every day), limited failure work, more repeated bout effect (volume/ramping)
Appreciate your thoughts and any recommended rep schemes (overall thoughts on this). HST had something similar in fact… but just wanted to hear from the master. Hope all’s well !!
