Couple comments from week 2 upper...

- Found it nearly impossible to match/increase my push up with a strict 3 sec down, 1 second up. Is this how it should be? I can knock out the 20% over, but not when trying to do 3 down/1 up...
- Also, how my gym is laid out the appropriate/following gym etiquette area for planking is no where near the area for lat pull downing. If it was possible to group weight/cable machine exercises together and the other stationary/body-weight together it would be easier to get it all done.

other than that so far so good

Thanks for that feedback. For the push ups, the eccentrics plus an increase in volume might have been a bit ambitious. I am sure other people felt the same way so I made an edit

For you specific gym layout, you should take the planks and other ab movements and move them to their own set at the very end. I'd rather you get them done at the end of the workout if your gym doesn't allow for a smooth transition

Hey Crew, sorry about the delay. Week 6 is now posted. We are going into Strength phase. Rep schemes will drop into 6-8 and rest/ recover after each set will increase. Take the extra rest and allow your muscles to recover and lift heavy.

Stay safe, practice good form, and always use a spotter!

As usual you can always email me with any questions

Best,
Trainer Dave
