Going to be keeping a Log to both keep me accountable and more importantly keep me organized when it comes to progression and my training. Also hopefully along the way I can pick up some tips here and there. Excited to progress!
I havenâ??t tested my maxes but for the last few months my training had varied with work and school and also playing a lot of football and basketball. But Iâ??m back at school now and besides the intramurals Iâ??m basically 100% focused on gaining right now (however most likely at a very lean pace because of the fact I wonâ??t give up being athletic or doing athletics)
Therefore for this cycle of training Iâ??m purposely going to scale back my maxes to calculate my weights with in order to refocus on form as well.
BB Row: 245x5
Box Squat ~1in above parallel: 345x5
Back Squat parallel: 265x5
My training has mostly been based around athletics with spurts here and there for just some hypertrophy stuff. Now I am deciding to run a mix (why not try).
Iâ??ll be doing a program based around the ideas of incorporating hypertrophy and power as in PHAT by Layne Norton, with a bunch of help from EBomb on the percentages and philosophies here and there. The lower body portion will stay with the athletic feel as those days will be the speed and vert strength training from Kelly Baggett.
Canâ??t wait to see how this works out!
