Eric's helped me with this new template. We're not going with what I had written out earlier: it was framed with a bodybuilder mentality and this is one of those times when my mentor drops the tiny rule of "make sure you do all your heavy lifting as often as possible" which pretty much has me wondering how I could've overlooked something so integral to getting stronger.
So yes, this is the new TEMPLATE:
Saturday = DL + DL Variation
Sunday = SQ Variation + to be decided
Monday = Gripper Training
Tuesday = PC + Rowing
Wednesday = Left over stuff
Thursday = Off
Friday = Off
How we're gonna go about arranging the routine for this Mesocycle is:
Saturday: DEADLIFT Training
Week 1 = Deadlifts followed by Deficit Deadlifts
Week 2 = Focus on Deadlifts
Week 3 = Focus on Deadlifts
Week 4 = Deadlifts followed by either Deficit Deadlifts or Snatch Grip Deadlifts (I have to choose and this is the exercise I will be doing for the 4 weeks total)
Sunday: SQUAT Training
I will be alternating Front Squats and Back Squats on a weekly basis for singles, doubles and triples. There are no rules here and it is largely by feel.
This will be followed by Step-Ups for a Volume of 24-30 reps. Every 3-4 weeks I will do Pistol Squats in place of Step-Ups.
Tuesday: POSTERIOR CHAIN Training
For Weeks 1 and 2 I will be doing Romanian Deadlifts with a little twist for nothing less than 30 reps (Volume). Week 3 will have me doing Regular Deadlifts and this is an open plan. Yes, on Week 3 I will be Deadlifting twice in a week…omgggg lol not!
After the main PC exercise I will do whatever Row Variation I feel like doing. There is nothing set in stone.
Wednesday: LEFT OVER Training
All the stuff which has not been done: my Breathing Drills, Overhead Squats, more work on Hip Mobility, Banded Push-ups, Overhead Presses, Unilateral Pressing, Weighted Pull-ups, Core Training etc will be done here in a rotational manner… This is also not set in stone and we'll take it as it comes.
So this is how my training is going to look for quite some time. It feels good so far :-)
