Exercise Selection Exercise

Here’s an idea for a strategy to help develop your exercise selection.

Draw a table (or use Excel, if you’re inclined) with the three competition lifts across the top as columns. Under the lifts write down the aspects of these lifts that are important to the execution of that lift. These should be specific to YOU. Yours might look like:

Squat Bench Press Deadlift
Quad Hypertrophy Pectoral Hypertrophy Upper-Back Hypertrophy


Circle aspects that reoccur across lifts. Then use this table when selecting exercise for your next cycle. Pay special attention to those aspects that you’ve circled.
