And likewise you have struck a cord with me with opinions that you express that I happen to not agree with. I do not possess the means to provide you with credible evidence that this program will not hurt people and vice versa.

Well maybe you should continue to log onto T-Nation to DISCUSS training and learn but stop giving ADVICE on things your not sure or experienced on.

Bangggkk..wrong again....by what criteria can I possibly use to prove my statements are true or false? A video does not work as criteria. In fact there is no possible way anybody can prove anything over the web.

well usually recommendations that follow some sort of training principal helps for starters. If you accept my challenge you can show everyone on here that A) you do lift B) your programming is superior therefore we should take your advice C) you have the backbone to back up your claims.

Again...it's you're, not your. Get it right!

Your recommendation had nothing do with 75% for 5 reps it was 85% for 5+ reps which 425.


Apparently you do not know to use a training max at 90% of your real max. Now that I think about it you could actuslly use your real max and not do amrap. This would essentially be westide max effort method of course you would have to change exercises each cycle but I digress.


If we want to be all technical about it, 85% of 90% =/= 75%. 0.85x0.9 = 76.5% of actual 1RM. While this is much more reasonable, you did not make this clear initially, which is just as bad advice if no one freaking gets it. I still wouldn't recommend anyone take training advice based on 1RM percentages from someone who doesn't understand basic mathematical concepts.


Training isn't that complicated, bud.

I'll humour you once more, since you have a really big mouth and bad attitude for no reason. Here's a couple quotes of yours from a post you made in the Beginner forum(Sheiko #29 for beginners) just last month:

"Been working out for powerlifting for almost 2 months using a rough 5x5 routine"

and this gem, my favourite:

"Best lifts (no straps, wraps, or belt... yet):
-Squat: 253x2
-Bench: 205x2
-Deadlift: 375x2
-OHP: 125x2"

You have a long, LONG way to go before you can talk smack to anybody. Get to the back of the line, zip your lips, and just listen.

Funny how when you tell people to stop talking it has a tendency to backfire, huh? Human nature is just a bitch, ain't it?

It's interesting to note that you have not disputed any of the points that I made, instead resorting to character defamation. Fallacious way to dispute, and indicative of a very immature mind. Additionally, you feel the need to act as a "Grammar Nazi", when it is clearly of little value to anyone else here. Despite this, you accuse me of having a "really big mouth and bad attitude". THAT is irony at its best.

I suppose I could sift through crap to find dirt on you as well, but I truly have more important things to do. Toodles.

Can someone please help me out.

I use 5/3/1 program, but little bit altered, to make even greater gains.

Here's my scheme for all my lifts, including assistance ones.

1x100% - 5 reps
1x125% - 7 reps
1x150% - 10 reps
10x50% - 1 rep

For some reason, I constantly keep missing lifts when I do the 100-150% range. It really sucks, especially because I workout without a spotter. I honestly feel like quitting, and my wrists, elbows, shoulders, lower back and knees hurt a lot and I just don't feel like following this program anymore. And it's just the first week, and I have another 15 weeks to go, all with linear progression, culminating into new max, that should be 502.5% bigger than my current one.

Any advice will be appreciated. Should I increase the reps? Or would I be better off increasing the weight? Should I add more sets in the 100% range? Maybe if I use a belt I would not be failing so much...? What are you thoughts?

Thanks.

Haha I know, right? His razor-sharp wit has clearly sliced me to ribbons... Fortunately, by working consistently and intelligently, I can always get stronger. Unfortunately, Caltene's ability to improve on his infantile intellectual competency is far more limited.
