LEMUR 2.0 Compiled

~ 5 mins rest

Power/Myoreps sets: Seated BB, DB, or smith shoulders to just below 90 elbow angle, strip setting down for 5 sets with explosive concentric ~5 sets 25 reps total as per usual


Volume work: 6 sets of 12, <30s rest between sets, Smith or hammer strength shoulder press.

Detail work: 3 sets of 10, 1 arm DB raise. No momentum, all the way up to above the level of your head to feel the squeeze. No ego lifting, I only use 35-40s and you aren't as strong as me. (DYEGYE possible exception)

Extra upper body press work: dips, 3 sets of 20+ to failure. That's unweighted for me, but dirty freaks like dake may bolt on a 45 anyway.

(No good place for KAATSU work today IMO, unless you want to do a dedicated tri lift)

some bodyweight squats

3-5 sets of 3-5 jumping free bar squat (trying for max height), 20-30% 1RM. Learn to land softly, btw. I use 155 and it feels really good.


Hip thrust: preactivate my going up with heavy triples, keep the eccentric explosive and be sure to get full extension (hyperextended hips). This is where you're use SLDL or deads, but I don't recommend anything more aggressive than a triple.

rest 5 min

LEMUR/Myo rep sets: Hip thrust, try for a 1-2s hold in extended position

Heavy shrugs, 3 sets to failure, squeeze/hold at top (but can cheat to get it up)

superset: 5 sets: hang cleans (sets of 5-10 with reasonable weight) with ab exercise of your choice, I prefer rollouts or dragon flag, to failure.

super set: 3 sets: favorite ab exercise with favorite calf exercise (can kaatsu this if your calves lag). If you wanted to put adductor abductor here instead of calf work i'm good with that.
*I do my hang clean/rollout supersets without releasing the bar

Myorep sets: also wide gripped chins, try to get some body incine to work the whole of the upper back

1 arm Cheat (Kroc) rows, ultra heavy - 3 sets, 10+ reps to failure. I like the HS row machine for this, though 6 plates a side has gotten light for me. The idea on these is to use the 1 arm positioning to start from a stretch position, then explode using the whole of your upper back, and try as hard as you can to squeeze at the top (you won't be able to, but we're just looking for maximum tension.

5 sets of 12 - incline rear flye, full stretch at the bottom, full contraction at the top, short rest, no ego.

Preactivate: Undergrip CGPulldowns

Cheat standing BB curls, Myoreps style

3 sets db curls across the center of the body, full stretch, strict form

5 sets of 12 detail work, either cable crossovers while stretching, or a FULL range preacher/spider curl. I cannot stress how important it is to get the full stretch to the point where the muscle relaxes at the bottom, this lets the blood "reload"...you'll feel what i mean. These sets re where one could add kaatsu occlusion if desired.


Do the weighted hanging stretches and a bicep extreme stretch on your way out. Very important day for stretching.

Myorep sets

Wide grip incline partial presses on the smith (your grip is wide so that at 90 degrees of elbow flexion you have a lot of stretch on the chest already). Explosive concentric but not ballistic.

4 sets, reverse pyramidding down, but with sufficient rest...like 6 on the first set, working up to 10-14 on the last set.

3 sets DB incline to failure(ish, not super hard DC failure), focus on MMC and drop your weights. Immediately following your last set here begin:

3-5 sets with low rest, high reps, cable crossovers or db flyes. Stretch, contraction. No ego, just burn on these. Could occlude here.

3 sets narrow grip press (whatever you prefer for heavy pressing tricep work, at this point your chest is destroyed

DC style 3 set rest pause lurker extension or skull crusher (pulling style tricep movement with emphasis on stretch)

tricep and chest stretches.

When working up to preactivation, before each set, with bodyweight, jump as high as you can out of the squat position (dynamic preactivation).

Preactivate squat (heavy, easy double with fast bar speed)

LEMUR style drop set on squats (you may have to massively drop weight after the first set to stay safe)

Walking Lunges, 2 sets to failure

Somersault squats (smith or free bar, kaatsu optional) 4 sets of 20+ to failure

Ham curls (or light SLDL) ham curls, 5 second + negative, explosive concentric, ~1 second hold at contraction. 3 sets of 15

Heavy biceps (cheat curl or cg pulldown)
DC style 3xF drop set

biceps exercise of choice with good stretch and full range of motion, superset with calves work of choice (10+ reps on the bicep weight.)
3 supersets
On preactivation and myoreps:

2. Perform a single rep with 85-90% of your maximum with FAST bar speed. This activates as many muscle fibers as possible, an effect that lasts roughly 5 minutes. You absolutely cannot grind this rep out, and total time under tension including racking and unracking must be less than 6 seconds. The 6 second guideline is due to golgi tendon inhibition. You may do a double at 85% if you like, but the key is that you must max out your force production. Ideally, lifting a nice heavy load this early should leave you feeling like a beast, ready to do anything, and totally unfatigued (unlike a 1RM max effort)

3. WITHIN 2-3 MINUTES Perform roughly 6 reps with around your 6 rep max. The last rep should NOT be a grinder, though it should be difficult, you do not want to lose bar speed and have a tremendously long tension time. This is still a heavy set, and focus should really ideally be on nailing the form and getting maximum power development, especially at the stretch point where the eccentric becomes concentric.

4. Wait 10-15 seconds/breaths, and drop the weight roughly 10%. If you think you can get more than 3 with the original weight, don't drop. Rep out this weight, still not approaching failure (each mini set should have a rep in the tank). Discontinue the set at the first sign of reps becoming "grindy".

5. Wait 10 seconds/breaths, and repeat step 4. Dropping perhaps another 5-10% of load is OK, but no more. Weights you could do for more than 12 reps are probably not going to produce sufficient load for the goal fiber damage here. You want around 25 reps through 5 or 6 mini sets per body part performed in this fashion.

Currently my split is this:

Monday:chest&arms(power day)
Tuesday:legs/core
Wednesday:back&shoulders
Thursday:light legs/core
Friday:chest&arms(light day)

But I really think by switching to Lemur I will benefit, thoughts?

This is a thread to discuss LEMUR 2.0 and subsequent workouts. NOT to discuss whether you should be doing this program, or how to substitute this into your current program.

Also, note from today:
Will not be stimming again on hips/abs day. The supersets are pretty damn cardio challenging if you do them right, and stims will hinder that in a way that overrides the intensity boost.

Could you download it on to your computer, email it to yourself, open up attachment on the phone? I'm not familiar with iPhones at all, so this is a complete shot in the dark.

You should have ibooks on your phone, download it onto your computer, email it to yourself, open your email on your phone and it should be in your sent mail folder. open the attachment in ibooks.

Yeah give me a few days. Will be revising and refining that spreadsheet a few times.

The main problems are keeping it to 1 sheet per cycle. If this isn't an issue...I could expand it to a larger - more broad view based pamphlet like DeFranco's WS4SB...or just make the log/explanation separate.

Thoughts, recommendations, ideas, desires, suggestions?

EDIT: Give me around a week or so to complete this.

Just make 2 different sheet's? one sheet for the notes/stretches and the other for the workout split.
