Training system

  1. Training system


    Has anyone tried the 'power bodybuilding' training system of mike o'hearn ?

    The training goes as follows

    Example say bench press would be 10 sets of 5 reps (max weight)

    DB press 6 sets of 5 reps



    And rest in between is negligible as he says he likes to recuperate before performing the next set.



    What do you think of this training system ?


  2. Abs are like any other muscle and 5 days a week is way too much to hit them. So for chest you only do bench at 10 sets of 5 reps?

  3. I think it is, Bench 10x5 + there must be some warm up sets if you are to use a max weight for all 10x5 and then DB Press 6x5. Seems to be more of a volume training / foundation type program.

    No no I don't do that..it was just an example to show how much reps and sets he'd do for a particular exercise
    He did warm up with 3 sets of 10
    Kinda confusing :s

  5. Do you have a link to more than that pic? We might be able to help ya out a bit more if we could see the entire workout.

  6. Looks like it's just following a 70, 80, 90 scheme. Weeks 1-4 working at 5 reps, 5-9 4 reps etc.. It doesn't look too bad as a strength building routine but he does have assistance exercises for each day, but picking one main lift for each day. You can scrap the abs each day as well.

    Yeah i thought about cardio 5 times a week and ABS 3 times a week
    Seems legit.?

  8. Really, what makes it any different than what 75% of the guys in the gym are doing already. I mean, he even places chest on national bench press day.

  9. Should be good with abs twice a week. Mix up your cardio with Hiit and LIIS. What are your goals/stats?

    My goal is to pack on some lean muscles

  12. Might wanna check your profile, lol it says you're 44. That workout is more catered to a strength building style but you should notice muscle growth as well, diet will be important and make sure to push yourself in the gym.
