  • Advice on moving to Block 2

    Hey Docs,
    First of all, I just want to thank you guys for creating the best training templates on planet earth. I admire and respect the kind of work you all put into the template.
    I have been training Block 1 of the beginner template for almost 5-6 months now, though I had to change up a lot of things due to injuries, covid and other sicknesses. My end goal is Hypertrophy since I am "skinny fat". Would you recommend I move on to Block 2 since I really like the Arm work, upper back work and most importantly AB work included in block 2, something that's missing in Block 1 or should just be patient with Block 1. I ask because I don't see improvements on lifts like OHP, Barbell rows and Bench press. I do see improvements on Deadlifts and Leg press( had to switch from back squats to leg press due to MCL strain).

    Thanks & Regards,

    Thanks for the post and the kind words. It means a lot!

    I think if you're still making progress on most of your lifts and are enjoying training, I would stay with Block I. If what you're missing is ab and arm work (primarily), you can do that from the next block, but keep otherwise doing block 1.
