My little brother is just getting into lifting and I had recommended Starting Strength. Not seeing many people suggesting that one, should I have suggested something else?
5/3/1 ALL DAY!
Starting strength and 5/3/1
I've recently started the Finnish Deadlift Program, & after 4 weeks I already noticed an increase in speed off the floor for the deadlift.
I believe Andy Bolton uses a variation of this program, & I've heard of people adding up to 100lbs to their deadlift. However, the version I'm using is long as hell. First cycle is 15+/- weeks, & there's 3 cycles. I've found a shorter one, but I kinda like the load progressions of the long version.
How many times a week do you deadlift ?
2x a week.Originally Posted by mdpwrlifter
Loads are real light, but they're off of a 5"+ box. Auxilary lifts are rows, pull-ups/lull-downs, power cleans, & hypers.
Sounds like it would work well.
I second that.
High Volume All Day!
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
i've done 5/3/1 for a few years.. it put literally 200lbs on my squat in two years and 150 on my dead so i say its a good program.
Did you do any accessory work?
Oh ya lots of adducter abductor, shoulder health stuff, grip stuff. I would still do isolations like curls at the end of workouts just cause.Originally Posted by mdpwrlifter
