Eric Cressey's Maximum Strength!

I just ready MAXIMUM STRENGTH by Eric Cressey and am going to give the program a shot since my overall strength is definitely lacking. Today I did "Packing Day" which measures my 1rm is the box squat, bench press, deadlift, my 3rm in weighted chins, and my PR for standing broad jump.

Standing Broad Jump: 80inches

Box Squat: 225 lbs

Bench Press: 180lbs

Deadlift: 315lbs

3rm weighted Chins: +45lbs

I'm 6'3 and weigh 205lbs. I'll keep my daily log here. If anyone has any comments or questions, let me know!

Re: Eric Cressey's Maximum Strength!

Day 1 week 1!

5 x 4 box squats @ 185lbs, probably could have gone 10 lbs higher on these.

8 x 2 speed deadlifts @ 50% (160lbs)

4 x 8 walking lunge (each leg) holding 25lb dumbbells

3 x 12 reverse crunch

3 x 30 sec plank holds

Didn't seem too hard. We'll see how I feel in the morning.

Re: Eric Cressey's Maximum Strength!

Last day of week 1!

One arm DB push press

4x6 @ 50lbs

Close grip chins 4x6

I could only do 4 of these each time so I did 6x4 instead

Push ups 3x10

One arm DB row

3x8 @ 55lbs

Kneeling external rotations 3 x 12

The cable machine at the gym isn't set up for this so I used 7.5lb DBs

Side bridge 3x30 seconds each side.

Attempted to do a mini flight simulator with a five minute cap since I have done 0 metcon since the start of this program. I couldn't even get 15 unbroken DU's, which is pathetic for me.

Re: Eric Cressey's Maximum Strength!

Week 2 Day 2

4x4 Bench Press @ 165#

3x9 Incline Bench DB Press @ 45lbs

4x9 Cable Row @ 120#

3x12 Prone Trap Raise @ 12.5lbs

3x12/side Side External rotations @ 10lbs

3x30sec/side Side Bridge

Really liking this program so far and am only on week 2 of 16. I can see how I am going to demolish my old PR's pretty quickly. I haven't been doing any metcon work at all though since I started. I think I'm going to start doing one or two metcons a week.
