    • Program Review - Modified Endurance Template 7 weeks

      Starting Numbers

      BW: 187
      Waist: 34.75
      Squat: 295 x [email protected] (320lbs)
      Bench: 260 x [email protected] (280)
      Deadlift: 425 x [email protected] (460)
      Wilks: 316
      3 mile run: ~22:40
      Chins: [email protected]

      Ending Numbers

      BW: 183 (-4lbs)
      Waist: 33.5 (-1.25)
      Squat: 330 x [email protected] (340) (+20lbs)
      Bench: 270 x [email protected] (283) (+3lbs)
      Deadlift: 440 x [email protected] (461) (+1lbs)
      Wilks: 328 (+12)
      3 mile run: ~21:30 (-1:10)
      Chins: [email protected] (+2 reps)

      My goals going into this template was to (1) lose body fat; (2) become better conditioned; (3) gain / keep strength. Objectively speaking, I accomplished all three goals.

      I modified this template in a few ways. I increased the volume by lowered the intensity on the main lifts for the first few weeks. I got my starting numbers by hitting a modest [email protected] the second week and then took off 80% off of that [email protected] After that if, everything felt good I added 5lbs. I also had a lot more volume for my secondary lifts by keeping higher rep ranges than what the original template called for. The last three weeks, I lowered volume and increased intensity on the main lifts and secondary lifts. Overall, this template is really a marriage of the Endurance Template and Hypertrophy Template. My strength numbers remained relatively the same if not slightly improving, I think this is a product of me "actualizing" my strength gains during the last three week, that I have built up from the previous two Hypertrophy cycles.

      My endurance improved but not as by as much as it has before running this template. This is more of a product of me not really focusing on improving my running time as much as becoming more acclimated w/ running more again. Additionally, the weather has forced me to run on treadmills a bunch, which made it harder to push my times. Next time I run this I will hopefully be able to get closer to 20:30 3 mile run time.

      Lastly, diet went well, although by this last week I was really looking forward to eating more again. One thing I did right was to jump straight to ~2200 calories starting with week 1 and lowering it by 50cals every week. One thing I did wrong, was drinking and eating out first couple of weeks. I also realized that to get under a 33 inch waist I am probably going to have to diet for another 4-6 weeks. Which means, I have way less muscle on me overall than I thought I did.

      Goals Going Forward:
      1. Gain Muscle
      2. Get Stronger
      3. Maintain Endurance

      My next program will be similar to what Alan Thrall is outlining on his youtube channel. This was not on purpose, as I was planning on running a more Hypertrophy focused template for 4-6 weeks before switching to 12 week strength. I will be eating slightly above maintenance at this time, looking to gain ~2lbs a month.

      • W1D1 - 2/25

        First week of "Getting Jacked" Template. Pretty excited. Calories are set at 2600 for the week. Had a binge worthy weekend, so I want to see where my weight/waist stabilizes at.

        Squat
        225 x [email protected]6
        235 x [email protected]
        245 x [email protected]

        245 was easy, but this first week is low volume low intensity just to get used to movements.

        Bench
        175 x [email protected]

        Was pretty surprised that I was hitting @8 on 185, but I have not done above 6 reps on bench in years probably.

        85lbs x a bunch of reps

        Plan was to do a close grip seated press in the squat rack, but it just felt super awkward, so half way through I started doing it standing.

          Again, surprised at quickly I get gassed doing sets of 8. It might be in my head at this point, but I thought 335 would have been easy.

            Run: 3.1 mile ; 23:56 @ 7.5
            Pull Ups: 7min AMRAP - 44 reps
            Sit Ups: 7 min AMRAP - ~160

            Right elbow is feeling tight after pull ups. Going to try to them again next week but if the same thing happens will have to stick with chins.

                    Waist: 33.6 inches
                    Cals: 2600 (3 days non-compliance)

                    Loved the first week of training. Having a lot of fun with higher reps and more general strength training.

                    Looking to be more consistent with calories this week. Do not want to gain excess weight on this bulking cycle.

                      Felt fine. After the gym my left knee has been "locking up" I think its the residue from high bar squats on Thursday or box jumps on Friday. Might substitute one of those out.

                            In the past HBS has always aggravated my left hip. I am trying to be less aggressive than in the past with the weights in order to not re-aggravate it. Was using a slow descent with the 3-0-1 tempo, I think that has helped.
