The Classic is a conventional lifting program. All the movements in this program are the meat at potatoes of lifting. What makes this program unique and effective is the set, rep, and load schemes.
I developed this scheme over a decade ago. The Classic is a culmination of what I enjoyed and found effective after years of training and dabbling in various methods. I've stuck with this format all this time because it works. It's a great program for improving strength and building lean muscle.
The Classic is most easily done in a traditional gym. It is possible to do a large chunk of the program if you've got a home gym with a squat rack and bench, barbell, plates, and dumbbells. Accessory work can be modified by you with whatever equipment you have available.
The Classic is similar to my previous conventional program, The Weida Way, but it is different enough that I think it fair to make available as a NEW PRODUCT. The Classic fills in a few movement gaps that bothered me about The Weida Way AND there is a LOT more guidance in The Classic because I don't just want you to do it, I want to do it right. The way it was intended. This is for your benefit.
I hope you enjoy. It's a fun way to train. Cheers!
Love the rep schemes! I’m doing 75 Hard and The Classic for me is perfect for this. I don’t take rest days so I just keep starting the cycle over and over. Using The Classic for my indoor workouts and it usually takes me about an hour to do each workout. So….no problem getting the at least 45 mins in for 75 Hard. I do my cardio outdoors for the other workout each day. Thanks Derek for making it simple.
All around good workouts and explains reps and sets well. I’m an experienced lifter and I enjoyed the challenge it provided me. Would recommend to any style of lifter.
Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for! The big, compound movements, no BS. This is my morning routine that is now paired with my running in the evening routine to get me through the winter until I start my serious ultra marathon training.
Love this workout. It’s exactly what’s advertised, simple to follow workouts adjustable to your ability, a little difficult to get don’t in an hour but can be if you work at it
I am starting out in my 40's. 70lbs over weight and have not lifted in years! I really enjoy the program and I am happy with it so for! It's hard to get to the gym 5 days a week but if I miss a day I start right where I left off!
