Yeah, I still get a bit of soreness every now and then. Just had a full 3 lift meet on Saturday, it's Monday night now and I can feel it in my hams at the moment. Should be okay by tomorrow though.

How to swicth things up, hmmmm. Well often I find the best way is just to be instinctive. By that I mean to not have a set programme for a few weeks dictating what you are going to be training. Instead let your head and body tell you what you are going to train next. Try it and see what you think, it's quite refreshing and your body will probably appreciate both the change of pace and the change of exercises

I also found that supersetting any excercise with the corresponding calisthentic movement for that muscle, makes you rock solid. Do you have any other tips for back and Bis. BTW I also change up my spilt routine each week, e.g Week 1 Back/bi's week2 Back/tri's week 3 Back/chest etc. Flex mag has alot of useful tips, for serious results.

Do you use any supplements at all, or do you prefer to get everything you need through the foods you eat? Any idea what your macros look like?
