The Classic is Effective

I have been cycling The Classic since it was an FB/Instagram post back in 2017 and love keeping it in my rotation. When I saw Derek had an improved version I decided it was time to update the regiment. After completing 8 weeks of The Classic and testing on week 9 I had increased my 1 RM for my Deadlift, Back Squat, Bench press, and shoulder press by an average of 20%. I believe that I could have gotten more out of the program by pushing myself farther on the burn out sets for the major lifts. I believe that The Classic is an effective and simple program most gyms can accommodate that will get you results if you stick to the grind. I will be following this up with Derek's power lifting program and I am excited to see what gains are made next testing week.

The classic.

Was following weida way but picked up the classic just for a change of pace. I like it. Similar but just enough different that it’s not the same.

Simple and Effective!

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.

The Classic

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.
