Hmm.. This sounds good. I used to squat once every 9 days or whatever SPBR has you doing and that was def not enough frequency. It's not so much anout the recovery as it is about the mental aspect. Training a lift that infrequent is not very good for practicing technique and I found I got pretty nervous on that day, as it would suck to fail the progression. Less need for mobility work and active recovery methods would save me a ton of time too.

Now I back squat once and front squat on another day, but I could up the frequency more. It seems to me like Tigerprawn has made the fastest strength gains IIT, and he did full body squatting 3x for a long time, right?

I'm getting increasingly interested in very high frequency like the bulgarian methods but I don't think there's any point to it as a "novice". Gonna reach some decent numbers and gain weight before I give it a go.

for real, i always feel like a total creep talking to a chick at the gym, even if she would seemingly be open to it like the one today. has anyone ever approached a girl at the gym?

"Hey, what are you training for?"

worked for me a couple times to get numbers, mostly from girls mirin' while i did weighted planks on the stretching mat. Followed up with one and eventually hooked up with her.

I can tell she feels super awkward whenever she sees me in the gym. I, on the other hand dgaf.

True true. I just hope it's not too much of the main movement. We shall see when I retake maxes 10 weeks from now. Like to hit 350 squat, 390 deadlift, 190 bench.

Why don't you talk to her when you see her to break the tension. Or is it just that awkward on her end?

It's easy, Mark. You just wait until she unracks her squat, walk up behind her and do this

Guaranteed effective.

it's awkward on her end. I'm nice/friendly to her whenever I see her.

She probably just thinks i'm an asshole; I stupidly invited her to a party and another girl i was banging was gonna be there. I "did the right thing" and let her know in advance and she broke things off with me. Oopsies.

Lucky.

On a positive note, I just received my routine for the next 12 weeks or so.

This looks fun/brutal. smile.gif

6 days a week and a whole lot of volume.
