Would you let these guys set the plates out at your dinner table?

I had a question about the exercise called ‘plate shifting’ in one of the programs…well that’s what these lads are doing.

GL got through his first session tonight and I didn’t even have to resuscitate him once. He’ll be back for more tomorrow.

AS is making major improvements as well…he’s up 10kg’s on his 5RM bench and he did his 100reps of squats tonight in 10 sets of 10 reps rather than the 50 sets of 2 reps that I think he started off at (just joking….but really…it wasn’t that far off actually). He in his third week so testing in a week and a bits time and we’ll see where he’s at.

JM had his conditioning session tonight…it was as follows:
Rower – 300, 200 and 100 metres with 60, 45 and 30 seconds rest…he did 3 sets of these back to back.
RDL’s 8 sets of 5 reps with 60kg with 30 seconds recovery.
500, 400, 300, 200, 100 metres with 30 seconds recovery between each interval and he did 3 sets of these back to back.
Then 5 sets of plate shifting.
500, 400, 300, 200, 100 metres with 30 seconds recovery between each interval and he did 2 sets of these back to back.
3 sets of 12 roll outs.
500, 400, 300, 200, 100 metres with 30 seconds recovery between each interval and he did 1 sets of these to finish.

  1. You have a Youtube account aswell? I’m shocked!

    But it’s nice to see an exercise i hadn’t seen before

  2. I know…wonders will never cease…I video someone’s warm up today for you if I remember. All the photo’s and video’s so far are just off my phone. I have a new camera on the way so the quality of the shots should improve even if the content doesn’t.

  3. Will,

    100 reps of squat…in whatever set/rep scheme the athlete can do it in…simple question….why? Are you focusing on improving strength endurance?

    I would be fearful of a breakdown in technique long before I hit 100 reps.

    And one other thought…

    I was thinking about your integration of conditioning before, during and after and how it compares with the usual programming in which conditioning comes after strength training, and I realise that in a lot of sports you have to be able to display strength and conditioning at the same time, e.g. rugby. Is that a fair analysis?
