Im going to start this soon, i just want to make sure i understand it before i start, im going to do the longer plan B option.

Im a little confused by the following...

The first is an 8 to 12-week block that trains your strength, based upon your 4 repetition maximum (RM), keeping the number of repetitions low—between 1 and 3—and the number of sets high. Rest between sets is “… as necessary…” with the goal being “… to make each and every rep.” Auto-regulation at its heart.

But it has you doing 4x6 week 3 and 5x5 week 4
Am i missing something?

As i understand it's 6 weeks and takes the clean and press from 10x2 to 5x5 so an increase of 5 reps?
So if you start with your 4 rep max you are finishing with a extra 1 rep??

Re-read the "strong" phase, I think you moxed up phase 1 and 2


Ok so ive read and read and i know it should be simple but clearly i am too because i still dont really understand it.

So you have the first phase

The first is an 8 to 12-week block that trains your strength, based upon your 4 repetition maximum (RM), keeping the number of repetitions low—between 1 and 3—and the number of sets high. Rest between sets is “… as necessary…” with the goal being “… to make each and every rep.” Auto-regulation at its heart.

So wheres the layout of sets and reps over the 8-12 weeks?

Then the second phase is the one thats layed out with a plan A and a plan B
