Will be following an ABA BAB weekly scheme. 

Workout A
Bench press 5x5
Front Squat 5x5
Deadlift 5x5
Pull-ups 2xMax

Workout B
Military press 5x5
Back Squat 5x5
Barbell Row 5x5
Dips 2xMax

Just a small piece of advice. You want to keep the planes that you push and pull the same during a workout. So in layman terms on Workout A you are benching so do accessory work like bent over rows and dips on those days. Workout B you military press so do pullups/lat pull downs on those days. Your shoulders will thank you.

You are gonna have monster legs

EAT and keep us posted

Diet will likely be the easiest part. There were weeks in the summer where I was taking in 1600 cals and still hitting BW in protein and good amounts of fiber/fats. Very low carb though. Now I have access to a buffet style dining hall for two meals a day biggrin.gif

Hmm I was thinking to not do the accessory work + main lift for a certain muscle group on the same day so as to not burnout and not be able to hit full potential on the main lift and accessory work. Then again, with such low volume it probably won't matter. Will test out flipping around accessory movements the first couple of sessions and see what feels best.

Went to the Singapore Weighlifting Fed to train on Friday night, a coach there told me about the chuanfu squat.

Basically Coach is saying that the use of knees in from the bottom of the hole allows the movement to more fluid and explosive. Is this a good way to squat for explosiveness? Do I need a qualified coach to train?

Coach also said this is a "100% injury free" method.

PS huge guy @ the start is national lifter Lewis Chua. Dude has insane numbers.

I believe Dan Green does something similar here:

I've seen so much discussion about the top two videos the past few weeks. I really want to say it's not the secret that people are missing, but I'll be damned if it doesnt interest me. especially after seeing these two legends.

I'm going to travel a bit after my meet in November. Will go to NYC again to hangout with some friends. I'm mostly traveling to get away from the gym for a bit, but I'd totally lift with a RHET member. That is if they want to lift with someone who is fat and unathletic icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

nowadays everything the chinese do is inevitably going to have millions of nuthuggers the very next minute its posted on lifthard or wherever the fuck. I'm not saying this is incorrect, far from it, but 'squatting for explosiveness' has more to do with your programming than where your knees travel.

According to the bathroom scale, I have gained 4kg in a month.

Still fit the same clothes as I did 10kg ago.

Thanks guys.

Trained this morning with the 2nd placed lifter in the Singapore Powerlifting Open today, realized Coach Wu's squat method is pretty effective, especially on singles.

Yeah bro I know what you mean, just wanted a different opinion on this. Because since I started lifting seriously knees caving in has always been preached as bad.

accessory work is generally put on the same day as the main lift.

Surely dips aren't in the same plane as bench. If you got the dot product of the dip plane and the bench plane you would defs get 0 and not 1. DYELinear algebra?

get away from thinking too much about the programming at this point. try not to do stuff that "seems like" a good idea to you, or in other words, use logic that isn't tested by lots of experience in the weightroom. not that swapping one movement from one day to another is particularly egregious, but programs are usually written a certain way by much more experienced people for a reason. the bolded portion is another good example; it might seem like sound logic to you right now, but in reality, any 5x5 or LP (linear progression) done as a beginner is going to involve lots of burning out and resetting of weights after a good long while of awesome noob gains regardless of when you do your rows. it has more to do with the overall levels of volume, intensity, and your efforts to facilitate recovery (sleep, food, etc) than doing rows after deadlifts. like i said, its not like you're doing anything that will kill your progress from the start... just trust in the methods, it may save yourself some grief down the road smile.gif

a good example itt is charly - he pays someone else to write his programming for him and doesn't think about it at all, and he's the strongest one here. your brain can be a dangerous tool if used incorrectly.
