This workout is from a young powerhouse who just competed in their first powerlifting competition this past weekend. He hit a 3x bodyweight deadlift (165 pound class), and is a very dedicated lifter in general.

My initial thoughts follow. Please feel free to chime in.

Quote:
My main concern is the limited rest between heavy sets. I know C&P likes this, but always remember you never want to start a heavy rep feeling less than ready. You are training for strength. My honest opinion is save the limited rest for assistance work.

Jamie Lewis is one of the few people that advocate it, because it's dangerous. You never do a heavy rep when you're not ready, nor when you are fatigued and not close to 100%. As you get stronger it can lead to risk of injury.

Heavy lifts - your percentages are too high on some of the volume. You're out of the Prilepin comfort zone. You are better off doing fewer reps, and then doing reasonable drop work.

Behind the neck press - I would avoid heavy singles and doubles. Many experienced lifters will tell you how they take a toll, and might start to take away from benching. Stick with 3 to 5 reps.

Chest accessory - Drop it. You already have a press heavy week. Back can take frequent beatings. With chest it's not necessary. You're better off working triceps more.

Shoulder accessory - Drop it. Too much shoulder work already.

Don't OHP the day before benching. Consider adding in weighted abs work.

Also, don't hesitate to take 3-5 days away when you feel fatigue.

It's very C&P orientated that's for sure.

While I certainly liked the C&P approach while I did something similar earlier in the year. In retrospect it didn't really allow for the specific kinda of form work and assistance work that you would typically get with more powerlifting orientated routines.

Obviously it works for Jamie. Whether it works for this particular chap is up for grabs.

Definitely add in some core work, both weighted and bodyweight (I personally find hanging leg raises from the chinup bar to work both grip and core strength).

If he really wants some arm work, adding it in after his deadlift day would be a good place to put it, especially if he is going to remove that chest accessory. 2 days rest seems like it would be really nice for this routine.

I also don't know what his endurance is like, but getting some GPP in as well would be nice.
