The Finnish deadlift routine is divided into 3 **** cycles. In each part of the Finnish deadlift routine the percentages are calculated off your current deadlift max.You train two times per week. Tuesday is your light day, Friday your heavy day. The first cycle lasts 7 weeks. The main exercise is the semi stifflegged dl off a block. Perform 10 reps on all sets. Assistance exercises are light power cleans ( 5 sets, 4 6 reps) before deadlift, heavy barbell bentover rows ( 5 sets), 5 sets of weighted chins (46 reps) First cycle (percentages): Week 1 Day 1:27%x1; 31%x1; 27%x2 Day 2:27%x1; 33%x1; 40%x1; 27%x1 Week 2 Day 1:27%x1; 33%x4 Day 2:27%x1; 37%x1; 44%x1; 35%x1 Week 3 Day 1:27%x1; 33%x4 Day 2:33%x1; 40%x1; 47%x1; 35%x1 Week 4 Day 1:33%x5 Day 2:33%x1; 44%x1; 49%x1; 35%x1 Week 5 Day 1:33%x5 Day 2:33%x1; 44%x1; 51%x1; 37%x1 Week 6 Day 1:33%x1; 37%x4 Day 2:35%x1; 49%x1; 53%x1; 40%x2x2 Week 7 Day 1:33%x1; 40%x4 Day 2:35%x1; 49%x1; 55%x1; 40%x2 The main exercise of the second cycle is the conventional deadlift off a block done for 5 reps.
