Thank you for the feedback. I'll have one more question:
Now my deload is over and I'm not going to do the challenge for three reasons:
-I doubt I'll have the time for 4 quality sessions per week.
-I'm going to learn the P. clean as soon as I can.
-I changed my squat form. Even thought my HB squat is almost as strong as LB in 1RM but its not solid enough in higher rep ranges.
Just to be clear - my goals for the spring are:
-Raise squat, bench and DL 1 RM for 15-30lb.
-Learn to Power Clean.
-Get my HB squat form more solid.
I'm going to do two cycles of Full Body Power Clean instead. I'm just thinking how the template fits for "peaking" the power lifts? In the book you have mentioned that deload percentages can be modified to different percentages.
Could I raise the deload weights each week like this:
- week 3x70% 3x80% 3x90%
- week 3x65% 3x75% 3x85%
- week 1x80% 1x90% 1x100%
I would do the raises only with one deload day/movement and with only Bench + Squat.
My clean weights will be relatively low, because I'm still learning the movement.
I'm going to replace one clean session with DL (prob. the last day). I'll do occasionally heavy singles with DL after 5/3/1. I have done Full Body before and think that I can handle these.
Sorry for the long post. Any comments are appreciated.
