Probably @Geoff Neupert or @John Grahill will advise you better but for what it’s worth:Hi. All. In a few month i will start the STRONG program. So i read the book and there is a recommendation to train STRONG 3 days a week. What are you usualy train in your off days? If i remember correctly (it was 10 years since i read that) in ETK Pavel also reccomendet 3 training days a week. And some easy training between the days without any heavy lifting.
What are you training in your free days? How heavy can you go without suffering in STRONG? What should absolutly be avoid?
Don’t add. Do STRONG and that’s it.
Strong already asks you to do Ab work if you feel like you need it.
Plan is to become strong. Tool is Clean & Press, which happens to be one of the best exercises to become brutally strong.
I did Sore Knee Solution because I had to. Then I was doing ab work religiously but after doing both I’ve noticed that best ever exercise to keep my “midsection” together when doing overhead work is Deadbugs and that is what I do each and every day after falling off the bed in the morning. 100-120 reps in as many sets as I want to.
Stay focus on the goal. If you clean and press correctly for prescribed volume and weight is right…I don’t think you’ll have appetite to do much more.
