This week i have managed to hit my targets of: Squat: 240 x 5reps (Monday) Bench: 160 x 5 (Monday) Deadlift: 260 x 5 (Wednesday) Did this using a linear progression method where as you can tell i was simply adding weight every week and hitting a heavy set of 5 at RPE 8-9 followed by 3 x 5 back off's at approx 20kg lighter than the top set and that was as structured as i have been. Just wanted to get back to this level before moving onto something more structured and focused so i have decided to invest in a coach starting Monday which means the rest of this week will just be light in prep for the new prog. Excited to get going! | |||

ChrisMcCarthy said:Seems to be coming back quite nicely...It is mate - gonna keep going with the linear progression up until Jan and hopefully hit my old numbers comfortably before moving onto a more %age based programme. I have no idea what DP means haha | |||
