  • Currently Concurrent; what do?

    I'm currently running a 12 week strongman program using concurrent periodization. I have an upper/lower max effort movement, thought typically it's in the 3-5 rep range, and a dynamic effort day for each as well. I try to improve conditioning by using supersets and giant sets. I typically work with reduced rest intervals. I would say that conjugate/concurrent periodization uses autoregulation, so that's not new to me. I've been training for about 3 years now, and I want to try RTS/BBM style of programming. I do not have a meet planned right now, but I am interested in doing one if I can find one that is convenient. Which of your templates would you recommend in this case? I know conjugate is a broad characterization, so I will say that I typically do 4-5 exercises after my main movement as accessories. Judging by what I saw when I downloaded "The Bridge" I think my training volume tends to run high.

    I'd suggest the Powerlifting II template in this case

      Thanks for the quick reply. I'm really surprised that you chose the powerlifting template for a strongman. Seeing as how I don't bench at all. I'm still down to try it though. Thanks for the advice.
