Old School Bodybuilding

This week I am going to write about my recent training program. I have never felt stronger in my life. It is a bit scary as I know that the heavier I will go with weights the bigger chance that I might get injured. But I am listening to my body and always trying to remember “train for strength; don’t demonstrate it in the gym”.

My current program is focused on power/strength movement early in the workout followed by bodybuilding moves and on off days I`ll do “drills” for fitness and agility.

Here is today session:

Chest, triceps, calves

Thick bar rack benchpress 285 lbs/129 kg for couple of singles *after warm up
Top position rack bench holds 465 lbs/211 kg 10 seconds x 3 rounds
