    Default Fred Hatfield 80 day 2nd time.

    Day 1

    Sunday December 25,2016
    Bwt 229
    Not exciting but it's a system.

    Warmup..shoveled driveway.

    Squat CAT 45x10,135x5,225x3, 315x1
    372.6x2x7sets 2 minute rests.

    Bench press comp pause
    45x10,95x5,135x3,185x1,205x1
    222x3x5 3 minute rests

    Bench overload static holds 335x10 seconds x3

    Chinsx8, pullupsx5,chinsx8,pullupsx5

    Basing my training on the following
    Squat -478.5 last meet
    Bench-278 recent training test.
    Deadlift -533.5 last meet. Probably low on this from the performance during the latest developmental block but better too low than too high.

    Targets for the meet. I will get more dialed in as March 18 gets closer. Small bites repeatedly will add up.
    Squat-500-525
    Bench 290-295
    Deadlift -560+

    I am Going to do the Fred Hatfield 80 day again with a couple of personal tweaks on assistance and work volume based on my previous experience and response with it.
    I'm thinking of doing the Dr. Squat 80 day program as well. Any further thoughts on it? Does it work well for the master's aged trainee? I just did the Candito 6 week twice and found it to be a little too much volume for me in the first couple of weeks.

    It worked well for me @45
    . I am adding a little volume and frequency this time around during the loading phase.

    The program follows a basic heavy light split with 5 days between bench and squat sessions alternating heavy and light. , 6 days rest after heavy deadlifts and 4 days after light deadlifts. The volume on deadlifts is higher than most people are accustomed to but it is achievable if you are realistic about your max.
    You have to manage your recovery well and add assistance work wisely. The first 4 weeks you can do hypertrophy work and or focus on weak areas, the second 4 weeks you are going to only do concetricmwork for assistance. As you finish the training plan and peak assistance is dropped.
    Some of the squat volume and weight may seem low, but it is intended to be used with CAT, it is about technique and intent.

    I would first attempt the program as written and see how you handle it. Make adjustments from there based on what responded well, and what lagged.

    Personally I like the set up, the heavy/ light waves on the bench and squat make my knees hips and shoulders happy ( only bench or squat heavy every ten days..doesn't sound hard does it?)and the deadlift progression is Simple as hell, but it works. You should be readyfor a lot of 5x5's on deadlift to be an appropriate training stimulus. Try to do most work in competition grip but have straps to save your hands, especially if you hook.
    do not take the recomended meet attempts on the web seriously. As a raw lifter the first attempts listed are your potential new max or "final attempt" , use your training experience and how things are going on meet day of course..

    My deadlift thrives on it. I made meet records on all my lifts after a surgery and recovery.

    Compensatory acceleration training. This is a pretty good description. How I Built My Best Deadlift Ever: CAT Deads - Juggernaut
    The link is not an endorsement just an example.

    Basicly you continue to attempt to accelerate the bar even as you are past the hard part of the lift.
