Lifters we recommend this template for:
Serious lifters with some training and meet day experience.
The competition exercises are performed twice a week. On the first exposure, they are benchmarked with a top single at an 8 RPE. This is considered a little heavier than an opener. This top single will determine the lifters strength on that day to account for fluctuations and adaptations. Volume work is % based work as determined from the Estimated 1 Rep Max (E1RM). The E1RM is determined from the RPE/% conversion of the top single. As the weeks progress, intensity will increase while volume decreases as things culminate with a traditional taper leading into the meet.On the second exposure they are progressed using ramp uploading protocols. Volume with increase and intensity will increase within each phase. There are 3 total phases within the 12 total weeks. A de-load week is used between each phase. Phase 1 using ramp-up sets of 5, phase 2 ramp-up sets of 4 and the final and third phase is ramp up sets of 3.
Accessory exercises are special exercises that have a similar ROM as the competition exercises. These exercises are used to help address the weak ROM of the competition exercises. The loading protocols for these will vary from ramp up sets to singles with back of load drop sets. All the work will have a high intensity theme and RPE associated with them to challenge those weak ROM’s. In this template, only the bench press has an accessory exercise.
Supplemental exercise are exercise that aim to target weak muscle groups that have a significantly different ROM than the competition exercise. Loading protocols for these exercises are all based on a ramp up method towards an 8 or 9 RPE. Higher rep sets (10-12 range) are used in these slots to help with hypertrophy benefits as well as the risk reduction of intensity associated with these types of exercises.
