So, I have adjusted the “Cube” system to suit my goals for the gyms strength training. In case you are wondering, the reason it’s called the Cube is, if you write it out or map it out on a calendar, it looks like a cube.
I think the 5 sets of 2 day is pretty good, and heavy. I think 4 sets of 8 will be adjusted slightly, so we will save the 4th set as a max rep set.
The day of 8 sets of 4 at 70% is tough! If you are working at percentages, it is a battle. You need to take time to get warm by lifting, because the weight is pretty heavy. There are a lot of reps, and they are all tough.
I will adjust the workouts on Wednesday so you can keep intensity high and explosive on the lifts. That means likely short, relatively simple workouts.
Workout of the Day
Strength, Week 2 of 3
4 sets of 8, 60%
On the final set, if you can keep going to 12 reps or more, go for it.
