Extra training

Howdy y'all. I'm a skinny guy, at 69kg or so and 5'10" (174cm or so). I'm looking at incorporating extra strength training in with my workout of the day.

At current I'm thinking just a 5 x 5 set and rep scheme, for squats and bench presses, and deadlifts and weighted pull-ups, alternating days for each. Any suggestions? I'm really looking to get the best results I can in terms of strength. I know there's no magic plan that suits everyone, but I'm looking for input and ideas here. Thanks.

Re: Extra training

Before my leg broke I would take the Crossfit Football strength WODs and do them before WODs. Helps a lot, tiny workouts in the morning help too.
Crossfit will get you stronger alone though.

Maybe so, but for a novice a plan like Starting Strength is pretty close. If you look at your training plan over a year, rather than next week or month, it often makes sense to dedicate some time to pure strength training. You can get a lot stronger in just a few months, and then have the rest of your life to focus on conditioning.

Re: Extra training

Unfortunately I've found it impossible to find a copy of SS here in New Zealand, so I'm not too sure what the template for that programme would be. I'll try find it somewhere though.

Re: Extra training

Try CFSB or CFFB, both great programs.
