  • Modification of template

    Hey Jordan,
    I’ll start this off by saying I really enjoy your content and follow your templates for my programming. I’m a 37 year old male 6’2 208lbs and training for around 10 months. I’ve done the bridge 1&2, 3 day hypertrophy, and time crunch with pivot. I find that my back gets “beat up” around midway through the bridge 2, which I’ve run twice non consecutively. I was thinking of a way to modify some of the accessory pulling and squatting exercises to see if it helps. I should mention I am not competitive and am training for health, enjoyment, strength gains and those good feelings from exercise. I have three scenarios and was wondering if you thought any would be a good place to start.
    1. I would lower target rpe on accessories down one, so like do an 8 where it says 7 etc. and keep volume.
    2. Do one less set of accessories at written rpe
    3. Take a deload week midway through the program to dissipate some possible fatigue ( like repeat week 1 after week 4) and then carry on as written.
    Any thoughts you have would be much appreciated.-Ray

    Hey Ray,

    I would probably pick option one here for you and see how it goes. Thanks for the kind words and for the post!
