Old Strongman Routine


#1

Trying to find a specific routine by an old school strong man that was posted in an article or maybe a thread. It was a basic linear periodization routine like 8x3 one week then the next week it was 7x3 and 1x4, then the following week 6x3 and 2x4 and so on week by week. I thought it was Paul Anderson and how he built his initial foundation but couldn't find anything. Anyone have any idea.

That sounds like Doug Hepburn's routine.


#3

For sure Hepburn Had the 4-10 singles. Add a single each workout

The 4-10 sets of 3. Same as above

5 sets of 3 and work up to 5 sets of 5 by adding a rep each workout

I think, maybe, he also had the 6 @ 80% and 1 @ 90-95% and repeat a few times each workout

Hepburn had the 4-10 singles. Add a single each workout until 10

5x3 add until 5x5

4-10 sets of 3. add a set until 10 sets

NOt sure but was it him who did a set of 6 for about 80-85% then set of 1 for 90-95% and repeat a few more times.
