5.2.4 How to plan a month
Planning a month or effective 4-week training phase can be challenging. Expecting linearly positive results is not realistic for an establisher lifter. I have seen people who plan to put on 5 kgs every week. This means in a 12-week program they would expect to have put 60 kgs on their lifts. This is unrealistic. Here we shall explore how to plan effectively as well as discussing how periodization can be used to reduce the risk of overuse injuries and maximize your improvements.
