Usual weight room was closed after work yesterday. So I went to the "fitness center." Infested with curl-bros. No leg workouts to be seen anywhere, unless you count leg extensions and calf raises. Dudes staring at themselves in the mirror for every rep. Does it even count as a curl when you use primarily legs, hips, and shoulders to get the weight up? Smells like Axe. Using buddies to spot and assist on cable machine triceps extensions-- I guess trying to set a PR. Is this a contest to see who can do the most variations on chest exercises? Flabby weak dudes quoting CT Fletcher. 100 reps crunches super set with Bosu ball push-ups, gonna be so cut.

All I could do was shoulder press some 70s, do a bunch of sprints on the erg and GTFO. Worstdayever.bmp

Also, thinking of working out in long pants from now on. Just use cheap sweatpants? Or kop some fancy adidas or whatever training pants? Need something that is loose enough to allow free and fast movement, but also not interfering with anything.

I almost always wear pants to the gym now. Slim sweats, my TNF impulse, or Mountain Hardwear effusion.

sweats work. back when adidas was actually a sportswear maker they used to have these awesome sweats for weightlifters that had kevlar on the thighs just like the singlets do. cost something silly like $20-30.

I only lift in compression shorts now.

Everyone at the gym just wears those by themselves or compression tights or a singlet. Some dudes wear neoprene shorts, like the Rehbands. A lot of strongmen swear by those.

Sure, I don't have big variety and I keep my selection very basic, but that has only been for the better for me.
How is your routine structured now?

I came from a routine where I had 4 days a week, each of them devoted to one of the big three + accessory work to drive that lift of the day up.
I was progressing fine on that template, but I wanted to change to full body to get higher frequency and volume with the compounds to really get my technique dialed in and possibly make faster gains.

When I did the change to ICF 5x5, I initially had to drop my worksets by quite a bit since I would be doing higher volume and more taxing lifts in the same session. Now, about a month later, my lifts are over where they were before with more reps within each set and higher total volume for each lift.

For instance, my 5x5 squat has gone up 45 pounds since Xmas (220-265). 1x5 DL has increased as much. Bench and OHP are progressing slower but I've also change some form and technique issues and deloaded on those. They're moving up now though. All smaller lifts (like rows, cgbp, chinups, gms, sldl, etc) are also progressing every session.

There's certainly no reason for you to change your program if it works. Keep in mind that I train for powerlifting now and pretty much only strive to drive up the big three. I was also very interested in higher frequency methods and had read a lot about it when I did the change. That said, I personally don't see any reason to do many different lifts that achieve the exact same purpose (like bent over rows followed by T-bar rows). I would stick with one lift for a certain purpose and get really good at that instead. Strength is very specific and is a skill. Its not just about having stronger muscles. Generally, you will be good at what you train. If 75% of your volume is done by accessory work, then 75% of your training effect will come from those lifts. May be good for BBing, but not very time efficient for PLing imo. I also believe anyone would get a better training effect if they just stuck with the big lifts and adapted to doing more work with them.


I do have a larger pool of exercises, and most of then are isolation work. What you say makes me want to rethink my routine, but I also realize we ultimately have different goals. You = be able to lift as much weight between the big three as you can. Me = look as good as I possibly can.

I do agree with you when you say that most people would do good with surrounding their focus around the big three, that and constant progressive overload on all my lifts, and deloading as neccesary works for me

Bleh, had my 1+ day with 290 on the squat. 4th rep I went down a little too quick and shifted myself forward, got stuck in the hole for a good 2 seconds while I situated myself way more back and got the rep but after that feat I had to rack it because it threw me off my groove. Oh well 4 reps means I can move up 10lbs on my max
