Hey guys,

My new training goals are:

-2.5 x Bodyweight Deadlift (currently at 2.125)
-20 Dead-hang chin ups (current max is 13)
-100 consecutive push ups (current max is 20)

I have found three different programs online I am hoping to integrate together to help me achieve these goals in 6 weeks (the deadlift will take a while longer though).

These are the links to the programs I am considering using:




My main question is are these training goals and programs compatible with each other?

Why not just create a complete training program that fully develops all your weak areas and strengthens your strong areas? I didn't click the links because I don't like confusing my brain anymore.

Put together something simple, a few lifts a couple times a week say front squats, deads, presses with appropriate assistance work say reverse hypers, glute ham raise, etc. Chins are easy just start doing them weighted or GTG, pushups just practice them daily say 5 x 20 in a 30 min period.

Why do you want to do 100 pushups? I can understand wanting 20 pullups

I am really just wanting to improve my strength and strength endurance. I am hoping to increase my push-up numbers to eventually be able to handstand push-ups without the use of the wall. I understand being competent in doing push-ups is a prerequisite to doing handstand push-ups .I also see the standard for perfection of the basic push-up is being able to do 100 consecutive push-ups.

Regular push-ups are a waste of time if you're trying to do a freestanding handstand push-up.
