Hey guys new feature. I am going to start sharing my daily training. I will be following the Classic Jim Wendler’s weighted vest 5/3/1 program from his new book 5/3/1 Forever. I will be following this for at least the next 10 weeks. I am looking to put on size and strength for the fall rugby season.
This program will require 2 days of lifting, 3 days of bodyweight/weighted vest circuits and daily airdyne riding adding up to 30 miles per week. I do not have an airdyne yet but am looking for one and should have one by this weekend.
I started the program yesterday. This week will be spent finding my 5rm in the lifts. Yesterday I found my 5rm for the squat and bench. This will help me determine my training max for the program. I did not work until failure, but once my bar speed slowed down significantly I did not go higher.
I built up to 245 on the squat and 205 on the bench.
Today I will be doing my first bodyweight circuit consisting of 5 rounds of 10 push ups, 5 chin ups, 10 kb snatch each arm with a 24lbs kettlebell. This first 3 week cycle I will train without a weight vest.
Rest day tomorrow then Thursday will be my dead lift and over head press testing day.
