One day off on the strength cycle. Couldn’t get to the gym on Friday so I went Saturday morning. It means I’ll have slightly less rest going into Monday’s Big 24 III, but that should be OK.

Big 24 II numbers (each set = 3 reps):

The Exercise:

1   45
2   55
3   65
4   75
5   80
6   85
7   85
8   90

Power Clean + Push Press:

1   65
2   75
3   85
4   95
5   105
6   105
7   110
8   115

Squat Clean:

1   65
2   85
3   90
4   95
5   100
6   105
7   110
8   115

Bench:

15   115
8    135
4    145
2    155
2    165
2    175
1    185

I’m adding a Bench Press to the end of my Big 24 workouts since that’s obviously a weakness of mine. I think in future workouts I will use the same 8 sets x 3 rep format as with the compound movements.

All the compound movements went up 5-10 pounds versus the previous Friday.

As I was in the gym I was thinking that the same format would work for the “Operator Ugly” tested lifts: Front Squat, Dead Lift, Bench Press.
