Minor side step from the cut, I started DUP. There are a lot of iterations of it but I am just doing the program that was listed in the Mike Zourdos study and eating for strength. Do for the first day I just did the volume day ([email protected]%)and I was incredibly sore. I was just testing it out so I tried it on a Friday, one of my first workouts after RFL, and like I said above it really kicked my butt. So I did it again on Monday, I was still a pretty sore but i just repeated the workout so the hypertrophy was on Monday. Sadly I missed my first power day which would have just been 5 sets of singles or squat and bench. So today I did my 3 sets of AMRAP @85% for the big 3. Squat was pretty flat and I hit 270 for 3, 3 and 5 (last set being low bar). So estimatedly that puts my 1rm at 315 and I was programming at 320. So nothing there. Bench was a better story where my AMRAP went 7, 5, 6 at 190lbs which put bench at 235 and I started with my planning at 225. So that was pretty encouraging. Deadlift AMRAP was 7,1,1 at 335lbs. After the first set I decided to play it cool for the last two sets. I still had to move a friend later in the day and hitting 7 reps was my goal which puts my estimated 1rm at 415lbs and I had been programming at 395. This felt pretty good considering I hit a 360x3 the previous week. Anyways I am going to ride out the next 5 weeks on this program and then try and see what I like and what I don't and migrate it back to a more HST looking workout.
