I play football at a D3 school in NY and just got back home for my winter break. When we return in the middle of Jan we will max in squat, clean and bench. Since the end of the season we have been doing a basic routine of 3x8 for each, 3 days a week with one day devoted to each.
They want us to continue this, but I know that 3x8 isnt a great way to prepare for a max. So, I plan on using a westside template as I loved it when I did it in the summer. The problem is that my squat form has been garbage as of late, and needs to be fixed. Im worried doing ME days will be hard on my form as I wont have enough reps to work on it enough.
So, would something like 3x8 at a light weight or maybe 3x5, after going heavy work?
