What Does this Mean


was reading over a trainng programme and did not understand what this meant.
“BENCH 4 sets (5’s @70-80%, 4’s @ 75-85%, 3’s @80-90%)”

can someone explain?


5 reps @ 70%-80% of your max, and so on…


What program?

Is it:

Week 1: 4x5 @70%-80%
Week 2: 4x4 @75%-85%
Week 3: 4x3 @80%-90%


Oh yeah, I like @usmccds423 answer better lol


Yes it meant this(Matt Rhodes Program?)


Its a very good programme, and im considering but do you think i can put some plyos before the main lifts? and how can i incorporate farmer carries.


Plyos before main lifts and farmers carries as a finisher would probably work fine.


I would try it exactly as is for a few weeks before adding anything, but yeah you can prob get away with adding those for limited volume


will do, will add one or two sets of plyos and just farmer carries as i have to work on forearm strength due to a previous radius break. But thanks for the comments! and one las question regarding the conditioning how many of each should i do i know it says keep it 60 mins max so could i do like 10 1/2 geasers one day with some of the other conditioning options and very it on the others day?


Yep that should be fine
