Complex A consists of:
Front Squat
Push Press
Squat to Press

Just wanted to ask if these were front squat to press, or are they supposed to be a back squat to press (kinda similar to the "bear" workout you see in CF).


It's a front squat and then a press.


Like a thruster or a STRICT Thruster?

More of a strict thruster if there is such a thing.

No issues there. There may be some minor soreness, but nothing that would interfere with progress. You'll see that occur throughout the book a few times. If it was a major issue then the ordering of the workouts in the book would be all wrong. Not being a smart ass here, but illustrating how it is such a different stimulus that it does not matter that it occurs so close to the different, more major, strength stimulus of heavy weight training.

Hey JP. I bought LCI and am itching to try it. Would you make any adjustments to the program for older trainees? I'm 51.

No major adjustments needed. Just make sure that your circuit weights are easily manageable.

How would you modify SWOLE diet to suit LCI... ie using the hand sized protein & carb measurements , would you have to subtract layers or just use the base?
And your stance on fat in SWOLE was that you didnt really consume any directly (though plenty in beef etc), is this stance the same when trying to cut with LCI?


One could definitely have great results using the base diet from SWOLE and doing the LCI. This would be particularly true if they were not overly fat in the first place.

Yes, same deal, let the fats come in with the protein sources.

Just bought LCI... Very excited to begin the program... However my goals like many others are to increase my strength as much as possible before I get the physique I have always wanted...

How much do you believe someone running LCI may lose from their 1RM?

I've never seen anyone lose strength doing LCI.

In most cases it goes up quite a bit. Remember that you are still lifting heavy weights in a progressive manner throughout.

Welcome to the board BTW.

Where should the bar be for the rest on the rest pause overhead press and bench? Racked, held at the bottom, or held locked out?
