I thought this would be the best place to post this. Basically, I've been lifting for about a year and a half. Spent the summer cutting fat, and have put on about 15 lbs since the time I took my avi with some high volume TBT. I decided I want to spend a good 16 weeks getting stronger and quicker. I know Cressey's a bad ass in this territory, and although this program is "old news" I thought I'd do Maximum Strength. My goal for the four months is to get my 1RM powerlifting total to 1100 lbs. I haven't tested my maxes since the end of last year, but I'd have to guess myself at anywhere between 900-950. At that time I hit 405 DL for 2RM, 325 squat for 2RM, and I actually only did db press on which I hit 105 for 2RM.
Has anyone on here had experience with this program? I'd like to know if you think my goal is reasonable for a four month time frame considering I still have so much room to grow being relatively new to the training scene. I'm also curious as to people's thoughts on this particular program. Any input is welcome. My only qualm at this time is that the program emphasizes pulling over pushing. Truth is all my push exercises (bench, military, etc.) are weak sauce and I'm actually happy with my pulls (weighted chins, rows, etc.) I think it stems from 11 years of competitive swimming as a young'un. Is it plausible to replace a couple of the pulls with some heavy overhead presses (barbell, db, from pins, etc...)?
Thanks in advance!
