I'm going to give Easy Strength a try. I was just wondering if anyone had any feedback on the program. What five lifts are you doing?
I'm thinking of doing DL 2x5, Front Squats 2x5, Strict Chins 3x3, Rack Press 2x5. I need help in choosing my 5th lift. Considering Dumbbell bench, Max effort lunges in 5 minutes, Overhead lunges 2x3, Weighted Dips 3x3, or Bicep Curls 2x5.
Type 1 diabetic that hasn't trained seriously in over a year. Looking to develop a base line of strength that isn't going to overload me physically or neurologically and generally isn't going to put me at too much risk of injury. Strict Paleo. Sleep good. Little stress.
The only draw backs I see with this is that it is boring and I might still get injured from overuse of the same muscles.
Never saw the program before but followed the link. Looks like a good program especially for someone coming off a long 1 year layoff. I say follow the article and add in a core exercise like the ab wheel he used.
I would also add that using chins in this program may be difficult to accommodate given the various rep and loading schemes. If you are strong enough to hit the ten rep set on day 8 then go for it but just something to think about.
You have a lot of shoulder action in the 4 you picked -- not a bad thing. But given your shoulders and upper back are being worked so hard, I would put the bench press in as your 5th. Weighted Dips would be my second choice.
