Routine, For those who are interested.
Now, for those who have been on the forums here long enough, they will remember me as someone more into strength training than aesthetics based bodybuilding, however I think this routine is a cracker for anyone.
I'm not sure if anyone has heard of 'Untamed Strength' or Alan Thrall, so I am going to add a disclaimer.
The following routine is designed by Alan Thrall of Untamed Strength. I am giving him full props for this routine. I am personally advanced as a lifter and even I am using this to make a start back in the gym after 6 months off (been working away, though before that I was training strongman). It's a great, uncomplicated routine and would, in my opinion, be sound for beginners and Intermediates, perhaps even beyond with the correct programming. I honestly believe a lot of people convince themselves they are more advanced than they really are.
Box Jumps - 4 X 2
Squats - 5 X 5
Lunges - 4 X 10
SLDL - 4 X 10
Clapping Pushups - 3 X 3
Bench Press - 5 X 5
Barbell OHP - 4 X 10
PullUps - 4 X 10
Bounds - 6 X 1
Deadlifts - 5 X 5
Front Squats - 4 X 10
Barbell Rows - 4 X 10
Very basic, very simple. I've been trying it, and it's brilliant in my opinion. I look forward to going into the gym and hitting it hard, and it's really, really nice to be utilising something so simple again. The Cube for Strongman was the last program I ran before moving to work in Alaska for 6 months on a research posting, and it's nice to just be doing something so simple again.
Below is a link to the Youtube video featuring this program, and Alan Thrall. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VptAZQf0RrI
I am in no way affiliated to him, or his gym. I just really enjoy the guys videos, he is a common sense first kind of guy, and the videos he makes are heavy on humour too.
I think he has made some real gems.
