I’m still with you man. Nice work!


#422

Finished up best damn 2, no PRs this last week, just focused on technique, slow and in control. Gonna be starting a powerbuilding program with a focus on overhead pressing, since I need to bring those numbers up.


#423

Which one are you leaning towards?


#424

Not really sure, I found a kalle beck program for overhead pressing, that has 3 days a week of upper body work. Now I need to figure out what to do with squat/deadlifts. Might do one day with a front squat focus/deadlift varient/speed work and then another day deadlift focus/ with a squat varient/speed work.

CURRENT PROGRAM LAYOUT FOR THE NEXT 12ish WEEKS

Monday:
Upper Body(Shoulder Focus)

Tuesday:
Lower Body(Deadlift Focus)
Abs/Conditioning

Wednesday:
Upper Body(Tricep Focus)

Thursday:
Lower Body(Front Squat Focus)
Abs/Conditioning

Friday:
Upper Body(Back Focus)

Weekend:
Off/Rest Days

Notes

  • Im gonna try to stick to this schedule as best as I can, it may change based on school needs and my work schedule.
  • Also may decided to change wednesday into rest days depending on how the deadlift day went, pushing everything else up a day and having sunday being a rest day instead of the whole weekend.
  • All the upper body days start off with a spreed press and either strict,push,or BTN Press and 4 assistance exercises based around the focus for that day.

#426

Looks like a solid break from heavy work.


#427

ehh its gonna be moderatly heavy, no more working up to 1 or 3 rep maxes for a bit. The upper body main presses range from 5rm-8rm and the squat/deadlift days are percentage based(starting around 70% in the beginning and ramping up to 100+% by the end of the 12 weeks), all the assistance work is between 8-20reps so that stuff will be more volume based .


#428

Arghh YOU forgot the BENCH PRESS
How can anyone FORGET the BENCH PRESS
America was build on BENCH PRESS
There should have been at least 3 days of BENCH PRESS.

Nahh joking. Is it your own or is it made by a coach?
Like the tree upper days, but why only one squat day?


#429

Haha I still do bench assistance stuff, like on shoulder days I do incline bench and tricep days it’s CG bench.

But to answer your question(plus lack of bench), it’s cause of strongman. You very rarely squat in a comp, but you will always see some form of deadlift and have to pick shit up off the ground. So the squat is more to help my deadlift, which is why I’m doing front squats(plus having a strong front rack is important in strongman)


#430

It’s 3 programs in one haha:
Upper body is Kalle Beck(?)
Deadlift is juggernaut(Chad Wesley Smith)
Squat is from kroc

Notes

  • Might buy a pair of light bands to use for the speed press, saw some success using it for the other lifts during conjugate. Will also help with the second half of the press, which is where i struggle.
  • Nice to hit a PR on the push press, next week I have to get a 4RM. My previous best 3RM was 215lbs, so im shooting to get that for 4 reps if not more.
  • accessory work is feeling good, getting some insane pumps by the end of these workouts. gonna up the weight on these by 5 pounds next week.
  • Spending some extra time warming up and Im definitely noticing some improvements by the end of my workouts and the day after.
