I kinda want to get another tattoo, but I have no idea what I'd want. 

 

Took me like 4 years to decide on the first one, so I'm likely to never have one picked out for this. 

 

Struggle is real.

M - lower

T - upper

W - conditioning

Th - legs

F - push

S - pull

Su - rest

 

I'm all ears for anything with 2-3x week frequency, any more than that and volume will have to take a hit and I really don't like low volume (even if weekly volume is the same/high). Any suggestions? Otherwise I will probably just look for some kind of shoulder spec program.

 

The three fundamental programming principles are intensity, volume and frequency. So you can do high frequency and high volume, you need to adjust the intensity down. No need for the volume to go down when you train with a higher frequency. In fact, the total volume (at a heavy enough weight) over a given time period will most likely be higher with a higher frequency.

 

I'd say my program is very high on the frequency, moderately high on the volume and pretty low on the intensity. Has worked very well for strength and muscle gains despite using lighter weights than most other programs.

 

I think you should just do upper/lower 3x a week if you are set on not doing full body.

Yea u can go really beast mode with an upper lower split

My longest upper day is about an hour with 30 sets. Once Im in the home gym I might do that day 3x/wk. Tons of volume and I don't feel beat up at all afterwards. U get used to it if u set it up right. Key is really just to avoid failure at all costs on big moves and push closer to it on accessory shit

Someone help me figure out how many calories are in an ounce of cooked top round steak? These were pretty lean which is why I feel like I'm getting ridiculous calorie amounts. I'm guessing around 50 cals/oz cooked?

Yeah I don't like full body training. I like multiple sets of multiple exercises for each body part which I hard to do on full body splits. I've done upper/lower 6x week before and it's ok but it just gets too repetitive because the upper stuff has to be super sets (which is what my upper day is now) but with only 1 barbell and bench at home I am limited with exercise choices. So it usually ends up pretty similar: db bench/landmine row, banded db fly/bb row etc. once I get the chin-up bar and dip bar installed it would be easier but that's still about a month or 2 away.

Rasika was fucking amazing. Easily downed 2500 cals in a single sitting.

Decided to use that as a carb-load and managed to bench 310 for a single today, meaning my bench max has only gone down 10lbs despite a 25lb cut. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

By far my favorite restaurant in the DC metro area

So, on this high frequency side of things: you "could" do upper/lower *3 (= 6 days a week) without any problems, given a suitable level of intensity?
I wonder if thats "better" than push/pull/legs the same amout of days? Wouldnt mind doing deads 3 times a week really.

Dont know if u have room but Im getting a cage with a hi/lo pulley. I do upper/lower but the only thing I repeat now is bench and arm shit. Even with bench shit is different. Heavy BB bench, light DB bench, incline etc. Valor has the cage I want for like $450 shipped I think.

Yeah my basement clearance is pretty low which is why I sold my old rack in the garage and just got a squat stand.

Next pay check I will probably go to "play it again" and try and find a decent beater barbell for other shit. I have a decent run of dumbells but there's a big gap from the 95lb's to 125lb's. I just need to figure out the best way to set up the chin up bar and dips and it will improve a lot, I just have to drill into hollow cinder block so it seems pretty sketchy. I was going to put up some brackets and then mount into that, but now I'm wondering if it's better to get some kind of expanding foam and fill the cinder blocks with that, and then mount direct to the wall.
