Yeah, I'm getting lots of training suggestions lately, but I'm listening to all of them and I'll try some new things.

It just takes some time to try all these new things.

Wow, that's cool.....2 workouts per day. I do that when I'm getting ready for contest but not during the rest of the year.

How often do you train twice per day? Nice work on the pull-ups and chin-ups by the way. I can't seem to do more than 10 at a time these days.

I will be training twice per day 4 times a week until the fall semester starts the first week in September. Then I'll probably return to 1 session 3 days per week. I'll do a 3x5 of 3 compound exercises per session similar to Bill Starr's intermediate 5x5 minus the warm-up sets. I haven't found warm-up sets useful for me.

Nice at the 3x5! Be sure to log how that goes. I think 5x5 is a really interesting program, and though I haven't tried it on myself, I'm curious to know how it works for others! Be careful with the no warmup sets thing :wink:. I personally find warmups to be invaluable, but if not doing them works for you it's all good. :)

I've never done Jump Squats or Belt Squats before. I didn't use that much weight with belt squats although I could off. I was concerned my belt might break.
