that may be slightly too much volume on a deficit.

Maybe. My workouts will tend to be shorter and of less intensity as I continue to drop weight.

How about if I squat 2x5x350 today for the first time you give me a really good PIK rate so I can go tell these guys and they hire me to use me for my RHET connections.

from what i have heard about the applications compared to the job, an analyst job is 10x shittier

Boutique analyst jobs can be decent depending on the firm. You can usually get more involved in other parts of the business. BB analysts are cannon fodder but exit opps are through the roof.

Yes, thats true.

Daily lifting and maxing seems to be a trend now and its not something I would dive into, although I find the subject interesting. I was thinking more of old school American powerlifting routines where you have one bench day, squat day and deadlift day in the week vs how the rest of the world (or best countries in IPF) seem to train. 

 

I know that I would be tired of going to the gym everyday and I feel good with my modified stronglifts template. High frequency with full body workouts at with moderately high volume (5x5) in the 80-85% range. When I can't do 5x5 anymore with 5 pounds jumps, I'll just drop a set or reps within the sets so it gradually tapers down to 3x3 or whatever. Sort of self regulated periodization that way.

 

 

Good session today. 

A guy said I should try squatting narrower since I was the only one with a wider stance. Tried it and it was easier to hit depth, much better speed and felt less harsh on the hips. Loaded up for my working sets of 245 but accidently put on 275 and got a triple with what used to be my max. Bringing in my stance should make the carryover from front squats better and it will probably also drive up my conventional deadlift a bit.
