Mind if I ask your weight/height? With the weight you are pulling around, and how clean your diet is, I am going to assume you are a beast?

cubby posted a pic of himself in the "your shape today"-thread which might give you an idea before he actually answers and he posted his diet in the intermittent fasting thread. It's clean.

Yep, my diet is definitely clean. Probably too clean. Damned fiber. :D

I weight 175, maybe even 179, not sure, because I am up from 170 due to going back on creatine a few weeks ago. I am 5'10''.

I actually just took a new photo for "Your Shape Today" and will be posting it shortly. :D

So, I am going to start on this tomorrow:

Week 1
Monday: Sumo Deadlift 3x3, 3x1; RDL 2x7; Straight Leg Calf Raise 2x7
Tuesday: Bench 3x3, 2x1; Military 3x3, 2x1; Dips 4x3
Wednesday: Chins 3x5, 2x1; BB Bent Over Rows 3x5; Pull-ups 3x5
Thursday: Speed Squats 4x2; Straight Leg Calf Raise 4x3
Friday: Off
Saturday: Speed Bench 4x2; Speed Chins 4x2; Upright Rows 2x7
Sunday: Off

Week 2
Monday: Speed Deficit Sumo Deadlift 4x2; RDL 2x7; Straight Leg Calf Raise 2x7
Tuesday: Bench 3x5, 2x1; Military 3x5, 2x1; Dips 3x5
Wednesday: Chins 3x3, 2x1; BB Bent Over Rows 4x3; Pull-ups 4x3
Thursday: Squats 3x3, 3x1; Straight Leg Calf Press 3x5
Friday: Off
Saturday: Speed Bench 4x2; Speed Chins 4x2; Upright Rows 2x7
Sunday: Off

I will probably change something about it before I begin on it, and something else partway through. I have been reading my NSCA-CSCS textbook, Westside and Hatfield articles the past week or so. Since, according to Hatfield (Dr. Squat), I am primarily an "easy gainer" due to my low work capacity, but fairly strong 1RMs, this program should work beautifully. I think. I will find out, anyway.

I am going to attempt a 405 1RM on sumo deadlift tomorrow. I've been striving for that over the past few months, so I really hope I nail it. If not, I am sure I will nail it after one cycle of this.

Thanks for the birthday wish :D That is a crazy video, haha.

I haven't updated this in a long time with my training. Basically, I have been running a 10x3 program, very basic, three days a week and with very few lifts. I have been deloading this week and will start a Doggcrapp blast on Monday. I am rather nervous about the widowmaker squats, but they should be a lot of fun.

I moved back home and only have internet at work (as a personal trainer) right now, so I haven't been bumping around the interenet as much. Yep, still on IF. I finished with personal training school and just started a master's program in exercise science, with a sports performance focus. I am doing pretty well right now, but I am a shit salesman, so I only have one client to train so far, and I am on pure commission right now, so I only get paid when I train. I will learn to sell soon enough, I suppose. Other than that, I am doing great.

How are things with you? Doing well with IF?

The masters program sounds awesome and you'll get the sales bit pretty soon I bet :D
Yeah IF is working great for me even though training is going a bit slow lately.

About time to update this. I am running a variation on Iron Addict's Simple Power-Based Routine (SPBR). I don't like exercising my upper back along with legs, leaving chest, shoulders and tris on a day all their own.

Everything is submaximal except the Max Effort (ME) top set

Upper 1
ME triple of dips, reduce weight 5% for a 2x4 or so
ME triple for chins, same protocol as dips
5x5-8 dips
5x5-8 DB bench rows
3x5-8 military

Lower 1
ME Deadlift triple, same protocol, maybe one less set
Leg press 2-3x5-8
ME Calf press triple, 2x4 or so
3x5-8 abs
Grip and static core work

Upper 2
ME bench triple, 2x4 or so
ME pull-up triple, 2x4 or so
5x5-8 incline DB bench
5x5-8 supinated grip chest-supported DB rows
3x5-8 upright rows

Lower 2
ME Pin paused squat triple, 2x4
Glute-ham raise 3x5-8
ME calf raise triple, 2x4
3x5-8 abs
Grip and static core work

The ME calf presses may seem weird, but I've found the best calf growth from going extremely heavy with them. Also, I get plenty of volume and TUT from walking and running, since I wear Vibram Five Fingers and use a toe-heel gait pattern, which gives me plenty of eccentric loading.

Since changing to a lower volume of work (I only work out three days per week, rotating between these workouts), I have felt a lot more aggressive at all times, and much more excited about my workouts. I didn't think I could enjoy deadlifting more than I used to, but I do. Deadlift day is today, and I am psyched. I think the lower levels of stress I am placing on my body have allowed my testosterone levels to increase or something.

Thank you.

Were you running heel-toe or toe-heel with them? I wear them at all times, and always use a toe-heel strike, even when just walking around.
