Re: Gslp

Chris, check that right shoulder's flexibility. Undergrip asks for a bit more flexibility in a hang.

Or go with a bit wider of a grip.

Re: Gslp

Thanks guys, ill experiment with the chin grip. Seems i did feel a little bit better going wider on chins, which also helps me on barbell curls.

Blaire, i never thought about shoulder flexibility. This wrist hardly bothers me in most movements, but mostly on chins and curls with a flat bar. I also have a little elbow pain on this side i thought was tendonitis that comes and goes. Does that sound like shoulder mob. to you or just wrist/forearm?

Re: Gslp

After reading the GSLP book, and following the routine intermittently, there is something still unclear to me: which weights should I use in the last rep (the one 5+, AMRAP)? Are you using the same weights than in the two first sets? Are you deloading this last set to go for more reps?

So far, I consider the last rep the most important (strongest/intense), but this means that I am a little conservative with the first two. That's how it should be?

Re: Gslp

Same weight for all three sets, which means the first two sets obviously can't be your 5RM weight since you should be doing ~7-10 reps on your final set.

Re: Gslp

Hey guys and gals

Just wondering if anyone is still using gslp or using gslp for basic strength moves (press, squat, pullups, bench, deadlift) before metcons?

Richard

Re: Gslp

This board is not as active as it once was. In addition, the whole GSLP thing was a fad in the CF world and probably has died off significantly as people moved on to other things. There was nothing wrong with it per se, but it was nothing special as far as strength training goes either.

Re: Gslp

I've recently run people through modified versions of GSLP. It's still a very solid program for novices and is my go-to program for someone I can't coach very often (or at all) in person.

It gives them steady practice in the big lifts, keeps increasing the weight on schedule to teach them what heavy sets REALLY feel like, and gives constant feedback because of the 5+ sets. It's also more interesting than Starting Strength or Stronglifts and doesn't slam them with as much squat volume.

My additions for the last couple of people who used it were mostly extra upper body work after the barbell sets (rows and a few light-ish sets of DB bench on bench days and chinups with lightish DB shoulder press sets on press day) and this band pull apart series after every workout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVehf-8FAxQ

Re: Gslp

Been using it myself and enjoying it. I have slowed down the cadence of the reps as I found lifting with normal (roughly) 2/2 cadence that on 5+ sets my form dropped as I approached failure and back arching on press etc started to hurt my back.

Also interested in trying the 'Delorme' program.
