For the next 16 weeks, the strength portion will be based on The Juggernaut Method 2.0 by Chad Wesley Smith. This program will focus on 4 main lifts: bench press (Mon), back squat (Tue), shoulder press (Wed) and deadlift (Fri). On Saturday we will focus on Snatch and Clean & Jerk. If you prefer more work with Olympic weightlifting and less with the Powerlifting, feel free to substitute one or two of the days with your preferred lift (for example, replace Bench Press with Snatch and Shoulder Press with Clean & Jerk). The specific program we will follow is the Inverted Juggernaut Method. It utilizes the same percentage schemes as The Juggernaut Method, but inverts the sets and reps from 5 sets of 10 to 10 sets of 5 (for example), to keep the quality of repetitions and speed of movement high. This program has 4 waves (10’s, 8’s, 5’s and 3’s). Each wave represents a 4-week training block. Each wave has 4 phases: week 1 is the accumulation phase, week 2 is the intensification phase, week 3 is the realization phase (with AMRAP test), and then week 4 is a deload. The number of reps completed in the AMRAP portion of week 3 will determine your new T1RM for the next wave. T1RM stands for Training 1 Rep Max and will start at 90% of your true (or estimated) 1 Rep Max. For help calculating percentages, download the Inverted Juggernaut Method Calculator. Download it and then type in your 1RMs. For more information about The Juggernaut Method, visit jtsstrength.com.
Week 1/16: Inverted Juggernaut Method
• 9 sets of 5 reps at 60% T1RM
• 1 set of 5+ reps at 60% T1RM
T1RM is your Training 1 Rep Max which is 90% of your true, or estimated, 1RM. 5+ means to perform more than 5 reps but not to failure; stop 2-3 reps before failure. Rest 1 minute between sets.
