first off thanks for taking the time to view this. Im new to the forums and trying to get more involved in them. This is the general scheme of my workouts lately and I wanna get some feed back.
points: I like lifting closer to my max, Im more concerned in becoming stronger than necessarily “bigger” at the moment. This is the first time Im actually focusing on keeping a running progressive overload program, I took a base of one from here and tweaked it a bit. my general workouts will look like this
ex. chest day
-warm upset up to about 295, my max is 305 but I hit 295 for 2-3
-do a negative or 2 at 315 followed by another set of 2-3 at 295
Now for the progressive overload part
dropping to 245, instead of doing 4 sets, I’m doing 7 sets.
-the first week was sets of 3, second week sets of 4, this week was sets of 5
-the single rep after, first week was 265,270, 275
-then a ME set at 185.
follow on lifting will be incline bench, typically 5 sets, then after that basically 3-4 sets of flys, cable flys, hex presses, dips, maybe some isolateral work and push ups.
Im just looking for some feedback, suggestions, ideas. thanks
by the way the original overload plan base is this
4 sets of 3 at 245, 1 at 265, me set at 185.
I mixed another plan that was 7 sets of 3 for the initial lift, follow on exercises are 6-5.
these were two different programs on t-nation, I’m not sure the titles off the top of my headset they were fairly recent posts.
