Program question
 
Greg et. al. I have a question regarding the 4-week Quick and Classic block program in the e-book. Unfortunately, I don't have the ebook, I got this program from someone who posted up a template for it.

Background, I turn 40 this year in June and am looking to be somewhat competive at the Master's Pan Ams in Chicago. I lift in the 85kg class, usually around 83kg BW. I have best lifts of 90kg/120kg and just started a regular full-time job again (after nearly 2 yrs off). I have done some contract work the last 4 months, but nothing steady.

Regarding number of days, would it be better to reduce volume a touch over the 5days, or just remove a day, because I don't think I can manage 5 days a week with everything. Also, on day 2 and 4, do you base the percentages on the full lifts, or on power version (day 2) and hang/pause lifts (day 4)?

Thanks!! :D

BTW Greg, it was great meeting you at the AO back in Dec. This is Keith, who lifts with August and all in Phoenix.

I would just drop the Tuesday workout. If you need work on the power stuff more than hang, do those on Thursday instead of the hang lifts.

%s for powers are based on best powers; hangs are based on full lifts.

Good to meet you to. Have fun with the program.

I already like it, so it'll definitely be fun.
