The wife and I are 5 weeks out from the estimated arrival date of our progeny. This leaves me with a bit of a conundrum. How do I train? 5/3/1 is good/simple/fast, but I want to do more dynamic movements keep getting that clean and front squat up.. but that oly lifting cycle beat me up and I overtrained very quickly. So.. I think I'm going to combine the two.
Tuesdays: 5/3/1 military press and deadlift starting light light light.
Thursdays: hang clean and squat work up to 185 week 1: 1 set, week 2: 2 sets, week 3: 3 sets.. and 5/3/1 bench press.
accessory lifts for both days: Rows, chins.
Saturday afternoons: some light kb work or conditioning.
Fridays: the usual Friday fun.
We'll see how that shakes out.. I might do this for 5 weeks, might do it for 2.. depends on when the turkey is done.. after that.. catch as catch can.
