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!
Absolutely love this program. Simplistic and easy to track and progress. Everything you need to build muscle and increase your PR’s. All the main movements you know and love, and then some. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to get in shape in regards to weight training.
Amazing Workout program
Derek has built an awesome program. I was working on a PPL program prior to starting The Classic, but it was missing the intensity I wanted. The greater volume and intensity in this program is exactly what I was looking for. I’d definitely recommend the program for an intermediate to advanced weightlifter, but anyone can get their moneys worth out of this one!
I think its good base. Like you said something to revert back to in-between special training. Finding my maxes and getting after it.
