Hello Guys ! I'm 28 yo and I trained for years but I never made great gains. I always overtrained. I decided to start an Hyper Abbreviated Routine. Some of you might be interested by the experience, it's why I create this journal.
I'll train 2x per week with only one exercise : Power Clean and Push Press. I'll do only 1 set of 1 rep and I won't train to failure. I'll do one rep with 80% of my 1RM and test my 1RM once a month. If I still overtrain I'll take a rest and train less often. I'm determinated to follow this plan.
My best performances : (on a 1.75m barbell)
Overhead (Strict) Press : 62.5kg
Power Clean and Push Press : 77kg
Deadlift : 172kg
Wall Curl : 58kg (Ez barbell)
Now I'm weaker, recently I was only able to OHP 55kg, PC&PP 65kg and Curl 50kg my deadlift is probably weaker too because I overtrained recently. It's why I start this Hyper Abbreviated Routine.
I did my first workout : PC&PP 53kg. Next workout on sunday ! I hope I'll be much stronger in a few months ! Wait and See !
