Same every week. You'll be deadlifting/OHP once a week, squatting thrice.
Here's a sample I'll post up on what this program is after. This is in reference to DUAL FACTOR training. By dual factor, I mean the programs outlined with scheduled deloads such as Madcow's and AnimalMass's versions.
Find your 1 x 5 RM (rep max), 5 x 5 RM (rep max) for each exercise. Yes, they are two different maxes. 1 x 5 is still 5 total sets, but a pyramid. 5 x 5 is the same weight, and will be of course lower than your pyramid weight. **Make sure that you're doing the exercises IN ORDER!**
For instance, if you were to find your deadlift RM first, then when you start the program and you're doing deadlifts after
squats and OHP's, I guarantee it'll be a lot lower than you thought!
Take those RM's you got and input them into either week 3 or week 4. I suggest inputting those numbers for week 3
because I guarantee you that by week 4 you'll be a lot stronger and have new PR's. Keep in mind that this entire VOLUME PHASE is preplanned and all the weights are mapped out for you. So, after you input your RM's into week 3, add 5-10 pounds and unput those numbers into week 4. From here, just keep dropping 5-10 lbs per exercise from week 3 for weeks 2 and 1.
In essence, the weights should get progressively harder:
Week One: Managable
Week Two: Hard
Week Three: Very Hard
Week Four: Rediculous..I need a deload!
This is an example. Basically, the first three weeks you should hit EVERY REP of EVERY SET! If for some reason you felt like shit or overestimated some numbers, just carry-over that weight for the next session. If you get overzealous and keep increasing, you're setting yourself up for failure. It will defeat the purpose of a VOLUME phase, since you're not doing the full amount of volume.
* At this point, you've found your RM's, inputted all the numbers HONESTLY, and now you're ready to officially begin.
