Hey guys, was hoping for feedback on this concept I had for a training cycle.
Four day upper/lower split.
Each lift performed once per week with a variation performed an additional time.
Main lifts are performed on 5 descending sets:
- first set is a PR (cycle through 5RM/3RM as per Texas Method)
- following sets, dependent upon day, are a combination of drop and sets across to fulfill volume component. Example: 245x5,215x4x5 OR 245x5,225x5,205x3x5. PR is planned, drop sets flexible.
Cable Rows 2x10
SLDL/Deficit DL/Deficit SLDL 3x6
BB Hip Thrusts 3x10
Pause Bench 3x3
BB Row 3x5
Front Squat 3x3
BB Hip Thrusts 3x5
Note on the hip thrusts: I'm throwing them in right now to work on an imbalance that's making my squat form weak on the heaviest sets.
So yeah, thoughts on this?
