Happy New Year!!
Hope everyone had a great holiday and safe holiday!
We are going to be starting a NEW Strength Cycle “Wendler 5/3/1.”
This will incorporate both the Strict Press and Box Squats!!
We will be doing this weekly over the next 6 weeks. The first 4 weeks will be strength loading, 5th week will be a de-load week and the 6th week will be testing our gains!
Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 is all about starting with moderate weights while progressing slowly and consistently. This extremely popular strength training program is based off of the rep schemes 5, 3, 1, as the name suggests. Throughout the routine you will work with percentages based off of your max, and strive to hit rep PR’s each workout.
The main movement stays the same and keeps strength in the program. This allows you to progress from week to week and actually get stronger, something lacking in about 99% of non-assisted bodybuilders’ routines.
Below is a link to Wendler’s website with blog postings. This will help if you want a little more information towards the process. Or you can speak with Keith, he has books on Wendler’ program you can ask to read.
Look forward to working with all of you and seeing our gains!!
