Greg / Others -

I've been looking around for beginner templates (similar to the one over at Coach B's page, which is a 4 day) and am wondering if there are any 3 x week templates that you're a fan of.

I think getting it down to that amount of volume for me as a beginner would be really cool and while I've come across templates I'm not really qualified to judge them.

Thanks for any replies!

I just posted my 2-day per week template on my training log here (http://performancemenu.com/forum/showpost.php?p=41226&postcount=296), if that helps.

I'm only supposed to use it for five weeks before my coach updates it, though. I'm in the second week.

WK1
M - DEADLIFT / BENCH 3X5, WOD
W - SQUAT / CLEAN & JERK 3X5, WOD
F - WEIGHTED PU / SNATCH 3X5, WOD

WK2
M - SUMO, TRAP BAR, OR SUITCASE DEADLIFT / WEIGHTED DIP 3X5, WOD
W - FRONT SQUAT OR BOX SQUAT / PUSH PRESS OR PUSH JERK 3X5, WOD
F - BENT ROW / OHS 3X5, WOD

WK3
SAME AS WK1, 3X3

WK4
SAME AS WK2, 3X3

WK5
SAME AS WK1, 3x1

WK6
SAME AS WK2, 3x1

This is the beginner program I have used for the past 8 wks or so. Each day minus the WOD can be done in 30 min or so. PRs in all lifts by the 5th & 6th week. With proper diet, mass gains could be good. Godspeed, Mike.
