I like it -
-maybe add one set on Friday with lesser reps where you set yourself up for a heavier Monday?
-do you pyramid up or do sets across
-going by percentage increases or feel when dealing with tonnage?
1-actually friday's training was heavy, i almost hit pbr in incline (3 set of 5) and in front squat (3 set of 3), although it was my second ft squat session since a recent injury.
2-i don't pyramid for the moment i stick to a basic 3 or 4 set of 5 for bench/squat milit and incline, i'll pyramid when regular ste start to be boring.
3- i'll try to add 2.5 or 5 lbs whenever it's possible.
i try this after years of split, i think i stale with split, i workout more to maintain the muscle i already got.
the purpose of this program is to increase my max for set of 5, not looking for pump or anything, i want to build muscle, not to pump muscle that look bigger because of blood pump.
note : the warm up for incline was awkward, a little shoulder sore and the bar feeling heavy but everyting was fine on heavy set.
chins were really easy, i do chins when my shoulder and my body is really warmed up with incline and front.
5 set of 5 on barbell curl and a pbr.
dips on wed wasn't a good idea, next week i'll do dips on monday.
this routine is not so strenuous, i woke up every morning with a boner and really hungry, that's a good sign.
