Editor’s note: See our full Reg Park inspired workout plan here.
There are two workouts in this program: Workout A and Workout B . Workout three days a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and alternate workouts as follows:
- Week 1 : A, B, A
- Week 2 : B, A, B
- Week 3 : A, B, etc.
- 5x5 - All exercises utilizing a 5x5 protocal include 2 warmup sets. The first set is 5 reps with 60% of your working weight. The second set is 5 reps with 80% of your working weight. The final 3 sets are performed with 100% of your working weight. So again, of the 5 sets that you perform for these exercises, the first 2 sets are warmups.
- Deadlifts - Deadlifts are performed using 2 warmup sets (at 60% and 80% of working weight), and one working set performed with heavy weight for 5 reps. So again, of the 3 sets that you perform for deadlifts, the first 2 sets are warmups.
