Cheers Lads,

1st week of a 12 week cycle and I'm not fully in the grove yet - My inner thighs are still tight from a couple of weeks ago (big 255kg squat and 260kg fail) which limited my depth a little.

On the plus side i've barely had any sleep for the last few nights (aren't kids great Wink ) and I still got through the session ok - the 235's were slower than I'd like but I'm sure the 240's will be better next week.

Very strong squatting. Is that the Magnusson/Ortmayer routine you are doing? Looks very similar to that.

That's the fella - I've just dropped from 4 initial sets to 3 as I'm also doing other assistance work.

Been using it for deadlifts as well with good results, just a mother to get through!

Iam going to give it a go with squats and deads starting saturday. I have been doing 3x3 and cluster singles training lately so i can see this routine giving me major soreness next week. What do you do after week 3? I was thinking about having a steady week then adding 2.5 - 5 kgs to the maxes and starting again. What about you?

Hello Mate,

It's actually a 12 week routine - what people post on the Internet is normally just the first 3 weeks.

Basically week 4 will be a rest week (nothing heavy, just a bit of speed and technique) and week 5 will be a repeat of week 3 building up to another rest week on week 7 etc.

I knocked a spreadsheet together to work everything out for a given target weight.

On the last couple of weeks where the heavy doubles end up being singles, I stop adding weight to the lighter sets to keep myself a little fresher for the big lifts.

e.g. week 9 would look like

4 Sets of 197.5kg x 4
1 Set of 222.5kg x 2
1 Set of 250 x 2
1 Set of 197.5 x 8

and week 10 would look like

4 Sets of 197.5kg x 4
1 Set of 222.5kg x 2
1 Set of 255 x 2
1 Set of 197.5 x 8

Both my training buddy and I have been using this now for a couple of cycles and have both had good results.

Good luck.

Macca
