Modified 3-phase training
« on: August 20, 2014, 11:46:48 AM »
First phase is volume.

The goal of Phase 1 is to increase the volume (number of sets) each week. In addition to adding sets each week, you should always strive to lift a greater load each workout.

Week 1 = 3 sets per exercise. Week 2 = 4 sets per exercise. Week 3 = 5 sets per exercise.
Rest time = 90 seconds between sets.

Workout 1
Back+Traps+biceps
(Light chest, moderate legs, light triceps and laterals)

Workout 2
Chest+Shoulders+triceps
(light legs, light back, light biceps,)

Workout 3
Legs+calfs
(Moderate chest, back and laterals, light triceps,)


The original has 4 workouts with a separate day for arms and calfs and I've added some lighter work in parenthesis.

Exercises

Back, traps and biceps:
BB row
Pull ups
Long pull 30-40°
HBR
Snatch pulls
Deadlift
BB curl
HBC

Chest, shoulders and triceps
DBBP
Incline Neck press
DB OHP
DB Laterals
Dips
Lying tri ext
Rope French press

Legs and calfs
Squat
Front squat
Leg ext/sissy squats
SLDL
Leg curl
SL toe raise
Seated toe raise


I deviate a lot when it comes to the leg WO and the original back and traps had 2 traps exercises which I felt was unnecessary. It's enough with one.

Thanks!  :)

And here is todays WO:

BB row cambered bar 1x3 70 kg 1x3 60 kg 1x4 50 kg
DBBP 1x3 30 kg 1x3 35 kg 1x3 40 kg

Squats 1x4 80 kg 1x3 100 kg 1x1 107,5 kg 1x3 112,5 kg

Front squats 3x8 70 kg

Leg ext 3x10 40 kg

SLDL 3x8 60 kg (focused on pulling fast from mid thigh)

Leg curl 3x8 35 kg

Calf raise 3x8 110 kg 1x20 BW 1x7 110 kg 1x20 BW

Bent over Laterals 3x10 8 kg
DB curl 3x8 12,5 kg

90 sec rest on main exercises.
112,5 kg squat felt relatively easy. The front squats was more purgatorian and I managed to hit the vastus medials in the leg extension in a way I never managed before! Good WO but I feel like I could do more which I will have to next week.

Snatch 2x3 30 kg, 2x3 35 kg, 3x3 40 kg, 7x3 45 kg

Snatch pulls 1x3 60 kg 7x3 70 kg

I need to work on getting the legs to work more in the pull and to get a better lockout at the top.
Next time I'll just do a ramping up with snatches and then do snatch pulls and snatch balance the rest of the time.

Steff, What is the top height reached by the BB in the snach pull? your eyes or mouth?  I suppouse that a snach pull is like the exercise named high pulls. An Snach withouth the final pressing movement. That is true?

Well the thing I have to practice is the pull before that.... I'm not using my legs and back enough and have a tendency to initiate the arm action too early.
So right now it's to chest height.
