Typically I will try and throw out various methods and bits of info for people to take away and try.
No specific reason for it other than if an idea crops up it might as well be shared.
You may find some of the older programs below useful.
You may not, either way they’re there.
One thing I have noticed in the age of the internet is the abundance of info and free stuff, it’s quite the time to be alive.
The slight issue is that it means people don’t go looking for the right info, just what they want to read.
Take some free training sessions people share.
Most are high volume bollocks that has no rhyme or reason.
There is little focus on developing much of anything in their training and it’s all for the attention.
While it is true there’s many ways to the top of the fitness mountain each one needs strength.
Here in lies the problem, people don’t want to get strong.
As such this little protocol today is focused on that very thing, with some added extra for those who want to leave feeling their heart race (because people are addicted to feeling that they’ve done something).
– Main Movement(s): 2-3-5
– Accessory Movement: Time or Distance Goal
– Conditioning Element: Optional sprint protocol
You might be wandering what I mean by 2-3-5 in the main movement, it’s pretty simple yet will be rather scary to some people.
You literally just to a set of two, then rest, then a set of 3 and rest some more and finish with a tough set of 5.
Yep, the 2 & 3 are your warm up sets.
This goes against conventional wisdom and that’s why it works.
You’ll need to have some focus as this doesn’t give you the option of pissing about.
Here is an example day with 2 main lifts performed as a super set (you can pick as main man lifts as you choose and perhaps have easier ones to potentiate harder ones).
A1 – Deadlift 2-3-5 Rest 120 seconds
A2 – Press 2-3-5 Rest 120 seconds
B1 – Famers Walk 10min x20m carries
C1 – Rowing Interval 8/12 x5min
Depending only our time you can be in and out of the gym in 20min or stretch it to 45, that’s up to you.
In regards to progression (if you keep the movements the same) add 2-3% to your top lift each session and milk it for all its worth.
Funny how many people miss that little gem.
If something is still progressing and producing results stick with it as long as possible.
^^ On average a lift/movement does well for about 6 sessions for most people and then needs changing as a guide.
Take a read on the above and leave your thoughts below.
If this isn;t for you that’s cool however I’d like you to take away one thing; train for strength first and foremost because being weak isn’t good and will lead to an early grave.
