goal is to first be able to do the indidvidual moves as fast as possible (20 pushups in 20 seconds or w/e) straight across the board (for all 8 sets)
then i add like 4lbs at a time wearing one of those weighted vests, all the way up to 84lbs.
then maybe… if its even possible, instead of doing the tabata method of 20secs on 10 secs off, i’d like to be able to do the excercise for a full 4min. this im not even sure is physically possible, cause thats like 240 moves of each while wearing an extra 84lbs.
the goal for phase 2 (the heavy bag) i dont have one… lol. wearing weighted wrists wont help. the vest wont help. i could try to hit as hard and fast as i can which i will, but i cant track progress off that.
phase 3 the hiit, i was thinking adding the vest to that when i can do 2 miles (which is no big deal at all and i could do straight running; but doing hiit dash and jog, iono) anyway, when i can do 2 miles dashing half the time and jogging half the time in 16 minutes, i was thinking about putting the vest on for that… however im not sure if that would be too much pressure on my joints, running like that with weight
any more opinions are welcome. for now, ill heed the advice to not limit strength gains, esp since i have a nack for matching up endurance real quick. it took me 3 tries to do hammer down endurance in under 25mins (no vest) but i diddn’t have one and still dont so i quit it.
annnnnnnnnnd one last thing i may be thin however according to strength coaches and powerlifting basis my numbers are 1/3 between intermediate and advanced.
gimmie till august. using 5x5, i add 2.5% per week (starting the week after next, damn warmup) so i squat 265 for 5, ill add 6 or 7 lbs till it hits 280, then straight 7, then 7 or 8, and so on.
yea that def needs a calorie surplus which is easy cause of my low weight
thought im still lazy: gallon of milk, 2 tuna fish sandwiches on whole wheat bread w/ 2tbps of hellmans mayo, 1 cup v8 essential amino acids, one cup v8 splash (mostly for phytochemicals) and 1 multi, i creatine, and some whey powder. or maybe weightgainer? for the sake of 5x5, i think i just now decided on weightgainer. cant live off it, but it can patch wholes.
i talk to mcuh. my other question was, if i run 2 miles on hiit dash/jog, would it kill my joints to progress with a weighted vest?
and no, i wont be doing this stuff till at least august…
(bench should be 280lbsx5 or so. i also put in 3-4 weeks off in case i need a reset.
