If your diet is still 3k calories there shouldn't be any issues with recovering from a leg day on monday. I did find that the first week of each cycle I had some good DOMS but it never lasted that many days.
Going to do the same and grab the new revision, sounds worth it.

Probably the addition of hack squats normally I just did leg curls and extentions this is the first week of trying to do it right after sean pointed out I was screwing it up
So more then likely its a combination of both
The day after squats I get a popping in my hips when I lay down for bench is this a unbalance issue or a stretching thing?

In on this man.
But usually when my doms get bad it's from either doing a new program with different volumes or from taking an extended time off of lifting. Bad squat doms can stick with me about a week. If you get that every week though I would look into what your eating/how much and your sleep time.. Etc. there's so much that goes into having good recovery.

I found it on amazon, dl'd to my kindle. I'm going to start it back up during winter sometime with one of the new templates, once I'm done with PHAT. I want to find the template will give me what I've got right now which is a good balance between strength/hypertrophy/conditioning. BBB always hit that spot so I'm hoping the new BBB templates look good.
09-08-2013, 11:45 AM
He doesn't go into templates much. It's mainly variations of the main movements. A good read tho

No gym today
Tomorrow starts 3's week of cycle 1 squats
Going to work on my diet lowering my protein intake from 300g to 2-250 and probably up my fats to replace it.
Other then that some foam rolling, stretching and figuring out what im going to put im my routine tomorrow
Should I switch it up weekly or per cycle or what?
09-08-2013, 01:42 PM
Switch what up?
09-08-2013, 01:49 PM
Sorry assistance exercises ive read stick with the same for a few weeks also read change them up weekly. personally I like to change them weekly
09-08-2013, 02:30 PM
I don't think it really matters. They're just that, assistance exercises.
But I always found it easier to track progress when sticking with the same exercises for at least 2-3 weeks. To see how I'm progressing and also to learn which exercises provided the most benefit.
09-08-2013, 02:32 PM
If you feel a specific lift is helping improve a weakness and to provide a carry over to your Big 4 lifts, than I would continue using a variation of that. Or just switch it up. It's your plan.

Felt really strong today not sure what happened with last set. Are you allowed singles? I think the stretching and rolling is helping me with my depth seemed to really go deep may have had something to do with it
Loved the zercher squat may keep it for a few cycles or until I can get the front squat down

09-11-2013, 02:33 PM
good work on bench man. keeping focused on one spot in the ceiling helped me a lot too.
if you cant hit the work sets consistently on squats you might want to back the weight off a bit. that would help in future cycles.
09-11-2013, 07:00 PM
Thanks a while back I couldnt get all my 5's on the last set. so I cut it back but a always got the others now this, ive been doing the rolling and stretching and it seems im getting a little more depth mite have something to do with it. Its my first cycle back since I had a week off so ill go another cycle and if I fail again ill set it back.
Could have just been a bad day we'll see
