As some of you know, I've been training using Madcow's intermediate 5x5 since fall last year. I can't say enough good things about what it's done for me both under the bar and between the ears. That being said, I have refined my goals and I wanted to tap my most experienced resource available, MAB of course, to help me design a new program. (Or even suggest one that already meets the criteria below...)
My only goal is to get strong! This, in my opinion, includes power; i.e. the force needed to perform Olympic lifts.
Some things I want to implement
I want to train the main lifts
I want to start training some Olympic lifts
I’m open to training as many days a week, as many sets, as many exercises, and as many reps as necessary to meet my goal
I'll train abs and jump rope as often as possible, every training day i'm not too tired by the end, for additional conditioning.
Please ask any clarifying questions necessary! Thanks guys!
