  • Modifications to the HLM template for powerlifting

    I've downloaded the HLM template and want to run it as is at least once. It looks like fun.
    But in the future I'ld like to replace C-P with an extra bench session. Adding an extra C-B session would maybe increase the bench volume/intensity too much.
    So I guess replacing the C-P with S-B1 could be a better idea.
    Now, do I best replace C-P with C-B and replace the C-B as it is programmed now with an S-B1 type movement? Or do I just replace C-P with an S-B1 type movement?
    The second option looks like it would fit the intention of the HLM structure more, to me. I could play a bit with intensity or volume for the S-B1 movement I would replace the C-P with, to stay a bit in the right range of training-stress. Just not to make it a recovery day instead of training.
    Do you agree with one or both of these strategies? Anything I'm missing?

    Yes, if this were your intention I'd replace C-P with a S-B1 slot.

    Sorry to trainwreck this thread, but I have another question re: HLM.

    Is the "squat, no belt" on day2 supposed to be done with main competition stance or alternate stance?

      What is an "alternate stance" squat?

        high bar if your main one is low bar and viceversa

          The program is for your main squat without a belt.-so whether you use the LBBS or HBBS, that is a beltless version.

          That being the case, shouldn't C-P then be replaced with a bench movement using the S-B2 volume pattern?

            I see what you mean.
            I think I'll have to run it to experience what works best. It's a matter of balancing intensity and volume.
            There's still the option of doing the S-B2 volume pattern the first 4 weeks and switching to the S-B1 pattern during the specialization phase.
        Working...
