Hello PLers, I have the following questions regarding the Coan routine. Thinking of running it for the first time.
At my current gym i am able to set up a circuit for the rows, SLDL and good mornings. However the lat pulldown is far away and almost always frequented by other lifters. Can I substitute weighted chins for the reverse grip lat pulldowns in order to keep the circuit going smoothly?
Would it be advisable to run the coan routine twice in a row with no deload in between? I would take out the week 11/max attempt since there would be no meet. So 20 weeks in total to run it twice. What would be an achievable increase in poundages per cycle?
When doing the coan routine, what should my expectations be for my bench and squat? Ideally I want to do the coan bench routine concurrently with the deadlift routine, and do 5/3/1 progression on my squats. I would start at a conservative caloric surplus, at around 200-300 calories and perhaps scale up if required for recovery.
