For any of those that have the second edition and have seen the proposed “More Squatting Template”, I was hoping to get some feedback. Wendler said that he never tried this template, and was just throwing it out there to see if anyone would try it. Unlike all other templates, this has you in the gym 5 days a week, which is appealing to me (I already bastardized his program and will admit that I shouldn’t have). But basically, I like being in the gym as much as possible and this program help with that.
But since he didn’t elaborate on it that much, I had a few questions. Do you guys think that cardio 2-4 weeks applies? Would substituting Db Incline Press for Db Press, weight-vest push-ups, or dips be ok? I don’t want to bastardize Jim’s template before even trying it but Db Incline Press has always bugged my shoulders. Should I just start light and play with the form before making changes to the template?
