What Training Programming Scheme does everyone use?

Hey Guys,
I was looking of starting a new conditioning/ programming scheme.
Just wondering what ones are about and personal opinions and how you found it?
Thanks
Neal

Re: What Training Programming Scheme does everyone use?

Sigh...where do I start. People will usually want more info from you about what your goals are, and/or stats. Sounds like you haven't read a lot of the current threads, but you are in the right place to learn. I'll just get to the point but will not elaborate.

Mainsite.
531 + mainsite
CFFootBall
MikesGym + metcons
Catalyst Athletcis
...dabbled with westside
The Outlaw Way

There's plenty of others, but thats the order I went about things going back 4 years.

Re: What Training Programming Scheme does everyone use?

All good, I'm not trying to be negative...its just a realllllyyy broad question. Again, there are tons! More like, each affiliate does there own programming. I use to go to hundreds of different websites to see what they did, then you pick your favorites, then you try them.

And I do usually write too much, overelaborate...just today my boss whats stuff done.

5-3-1 is a good conditioning program if you skew it that way. Hill sprints, prowler pushes, complexes etc.

Tells us your goals then we can tell you a couple of good options.

A good program is the one that will help you accomplish your goals efficiently.

Re: What Training Programming Scheme does everyone use?

Well, strength really whilst keeping my cardio up, I'm just trying to be as good an all rounder as possible but create a good power to weight ratio I weigh 70kg I think around 155lbs ( we use kg over here) so trying to stay lean and functional really.
Thanks guys
Neal

If you want to stay that lean, you'll never get strong. (Unless you're like 5'2)

I completely disagree with that. I have steadily progressed on all lifts (Example:a 365 Deadlift to a 535 Deadlift over the last year) while maintaining sub 10% bodyfat the entire time. My conditioning/bf% always stayed near-peaked while my strength continued to increase. This is the same story for those I train as well, who have gotten strong while getting lean. Furthermore, I have no clue what height has to do with staying lean and getting strong?

Neal, I am biased with the Outlaw Program. However, I also have had massive success using the CFSB programming. Food for thought. The best program is what works for YOU. So research some of the programs listed in this thread and experiment.
