Today I used my new equipment again. My goals are rather lofty. I want to deadlift 700lbs while also being a fit and capable person across the board from a GPP perspective. I need extra work and supplemental tools to do that. Hence the focus lately on the ATP and the Inverse Curl.

If you don’t have those I would stick to a standard deadlift program. I am excited for what is to come. You will see some pretty powerful stuff coming out of my garage (aka The Church)

Workout: 

Work up to Heavy Deadlift on ATP with Bands

Then:

5×1 Deadlift @ 495lbs + ATP + 170lbs of band tension

Rest 4 min between each

Then:

5×5 Heavy Pylo-Swing (tons of band tension)

Rest 2 minutes between each

Then:

5×5 Inverse Curl

Substitutions: 

I realize not everyone has this stuff. If you don’t then just Deadlift without ATP. Bands are preferable but if you don’t have them don’t sweat it. The percentage I was using in weight is about 80% 1RM.

For the Plyo-Swing you could do Jump Squats with a barbell on your back (roughly 50% bodyweight). Instead of the Inverse Curl do some heavy RDLs.

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
