    And as I mentioned before, if I layed out a best training program, most people would not even try it because it is so different from what they are doing. People like to stick to what know and have...

    EA,
    Let's see if I can help you understand.

    You take a guy who squats a 1000lbs and reduce the weight to start a training cycle..............

    Are we starting to understand now?

    I realize...
  3. The 4 week program that I feel is "crude", is...

    The 4 week program that I feel is "crude", is probably better than most peoples strength programs. It cycles the weight much faster and is not optimal.

    The weight added per week is different...

    Did you need some training advice as well? I'd be happy to for a nominal fee.

    Are you still class 4. You must have stopped training.
  5. That would be better for increasing the amount of...

    That would be better for increasing the amount of reps you can do with a weight not increasing your 1rm. 1rm is a neural adaptation which needs to be acclimated to by progression of intensity.

    My bad. I thought you were interested in strength training.
  7. Now remember, you are not going to train to...

    Now remember, you are not going to train to failure in the beginning. I'll focus on the squat, benchpress and deadlift.

    Start with 5 sets of 8 reps in the beginning. Increasing the weight on each...
  8. Take the weight down and build it back up over...

    Take the weight down and build it back up over the course of at least 8 weeks so that you reach your old max on the 8th week. You can start with either 8 rep sets or 5 reps set. Your 9th week will...
  9. By crude, I mean basic and unrefined. Don't be...

    By crude, I mean basic and unrefined. Don't be so self-conscience. I'm trying to help your ass out. Let me know if the next year holds another 130lb gain on the bench.
  10. Since most people can't put a program together,...

    Since most people can't put a program together, that's their first guess. If I had offered the best way to gain strength, most people would not try it because it is so different from what they are...

    And you should increase the weight each week.

    First off, you should go at least 8 weeks between maxing. Though if you do insist on the 4 week rotation, this is how your reps should be.
    Week 1: 8reps
    Week 2: 5reps
    Week 3: 3reps
    Week 4: Max

    There is usually one in Aug or Sept put on by Bruce Greig. It's an APF meet(and usually a very good one). He has them in Red Deer which is about 80mi out of Calgery.

    Anyone who has squatted over 1000lbs is on the "stuff". If they tell you different, they are lying. That goes for Tim Harold Jr, Brent Mikesell, Fred Hatfield, Shane Hammond, James Searcy, Chuck...

    People are more alike than they are different.

    The people making gains on a failure program are either beginners, users or people who have taken time off from training and have come back on a...

    No forced reps, no drop sets. Lower the weight down but keep the same amount of reps and slowly build back up each week. You are on your way to burn out if you train to failure and beyond.

    I have a couple of songs to lift to. Then give off a good yell. It kind of startles your body into releasing adrenaline. If it's for a new max, then I will usually have someone slap me about eight...

    Plyo's help build explosive strength(power). You are right there.

    Endurance will not help build power however. Strength endurance will help in terms of exercises which require a longer period of...

    I was being humble when I said “I don’t look that good anyway” . The fact is, I don’t have a scanner or digital camera. Sorry about the knee surgery. If I were you, I wouldn't be handling that...
