The Inept Cunt Program


I'm a blind man that's combined a couple templates. I didn't reinvent the wheel. There's nothing new about any of these concepts. They've all been used before. I wanted to work a clean progression into a strength program. The goal here is to develop more power in an effort to run a faster 10yd dash and 40yd dash. I don't know how things will work out as far as fatigue is concerned. From the stuff I've read sounds like a lot of newbs think they can throw some shit together and end up burning themselves out right away. I'll see what happens and adjust accordingly. If it all hits the fan I will have only wasted four weeks of training. Besides, it's not like I'm a competitive athlete and need to be prepared for something. I just like to work out and wanted to experiment with writing something of my own stuff and see how it works for me. In addition most articles on tnation don't pertain to improving sprint performance.

monday jan 30

free squat- 365,385,350,350
front squat grip forward lunge to box-205 (I had some technical difficulties getting an aerobic step to fit in the squat rack with room to do a lunge. I skipped this lift. I'm going to do it outside the squat rack and power clean the weight to oly grip next week)
glute ham raise- (still haven't been able to crank out any unassisted reps yet. I've been doing the eccentric phase with no assistance. It'd be ideal if my gym had an elite fts glute ham raise. The world is less than ideal)
side plank-3x40sec/side

tuesday jan 31

wide grip bench- 215,225,235,215
weighted pull up-25lbs for all sets
cable row wide pronated grip- 150,150,165,165 (weight is low because I wanted to eliminate body english and focus on form to strengthen the mid traps and rear delts)
dip-(finished all sets with body weight)
barbell curl-95 for all sets
inverted row with feet on box or ball- 12 reps,10,6,6
ab wheel roll out- made it to 12 reps on 1st 2 sets and 11 on the last one
