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!
I was out for several months due to an illness, and I was having difficulty being consistent getting back to it. This program is SOLID! Happy to be back at the grind and being consistent again. Huge thanks to Derek and this program/tips.
Loving hitting strength and endurance all in each workout! Just missing the cardio. Looking forward to seeing how my body responds.
It’s the essentials put on paper. Solid routines that will smoke you if your interested in doing the work. Works with a garage gym, some lifts need to be altered but the target group can be hit in the intended manner (cyclist squats for leg press... cry with me not at me).
Workout good. Workout fun. Workout simple. Workout make strong. Workout cool.
(Wish there were pictures though. Me can’t read gud)
