Default Big But Boring 3 month Challenge

T NATION | The Boring But Big 3-Month Challenge

Quote:
Month one. 5 sets of 10 reps at 50% of Training Max (TM).

Month two. 5 sets of 10 reps at 60% of TM.

Month three. 5 sets of 10 reps at 70% of TM.

5/3/1 sets and reps are explained in the 5/3/1 book.
Last sets on the 5/3/1 are not taken to failure; only the required reps are done.
All other assistance work should be kept to a minimum.
On upper body days, be sure to do some kind of pulling (rows or chins) exercise.
This is a 4 days/week program, not 3 days/week or 2, or 5.
Exercise substitution will not be tolerated. Ask me about it and I'll pray you catch gonorrhea.

A Military press * *
B Bench press 5 10
C Chins 5 10

Wrap Up
The Boring But Big 3-Month Challenge

In a perfect world, 99% of the music being made wouldn't make you question humanity and 100% of the training programs would get you big and strong. That ain't the case, though.

Fortunately, there is a solution, and it's not performing multiple sets of whatever cable Kegel exercise is being pushed as "The Answer." Just a little hard, smart, basic work.

It's boring, I agree. Do you want to be entertained or get big and strong?
