What plans did you all use for those Jerk Blocks? As in is there some directions in writing for some one who doesn't have a handyman bone in his body. Or is Greg like a master woodsman handy man who just makes a trip to Lowes and several hours later, voila.

B. Law - My own plans, but pretty standard stuff. In the next issue of the PM there will be a building tutorial for them.

Newbie Question! Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question. I just started the 1st strength cycle from 12/15/08 today. Am I supposed to ramp up to the prescribed weight on each exercise, or go straight to it? My squat was 225 x 3 x 5. Do I start with lower weights 1st and if so, how many warmup sets should I do with each exercise before starting the final weight. Thanks in advance!
Greg Everett 2009-03-09
Chris - Warm up to all your weights. How you warm up is up to you largely - the basic idea is to get yourself prepared as well as possible while incurring as little fatigue as possible. For your 225 squats, assuming they're your first lift of the day (as programmed here), you may do something like this (I'm doing it in kg): bar x 5; 40 x 5; 60 x 3; 75 x 3; 90 x 3; 102 x 3 x 5.That's a fairly conservative warm-up. With exercises that fall later in a workout when you're already warm, you can trim that down considerably (particularly if you've been doing similar exercises, e.g. cleans before your squats).
