What Does this Mean


#1

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?
cheers.


#2

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


#3

What program?

Is it:

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


#4

Oh yeah, I like @usmccds423 answer better lol


#5

Yes it meant this(Matt Rhodes Program?)


#6

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.


#7

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


#8

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


#9

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?


#10

Yep that should be fine
