there's not going to be anything too ground breaking in this log. the theme will be 'modesty'. I've been doing a push/pull/squat routine for about 1 1/2 years, w/ a 6 month hiatus which i spent in a dormed police academy. Lifting is not my priority. I've been in BJJ for just over 6 years and lift to supplement that. I used to be very into muay thai, but with my new job I just don't have the time so i'm very rarely there. (maybe 1x/week). At most, i'll be lifting 3 days/ week. I welcome any and all feedback on anything you see here, and thank you for it. Its this forum that converted me from curl monkey status....i never knew i was doing anything wrong! I signed up at 'St. Wilhelms' but consider myself a 'prospective' member until i can meet some type of goal. my routine is as follows: ALL 5x5 PUSH: bench (usually flat, dumbells if i have no spotter) push press (but i did do OHP instead for the first time last week and will probably alternate) dips (weighted of courst) PULL: deadlifts bent over rows chin/pull ups (weighted) SQUAT: back front over head --- on each training day, i will usually add some other exercise. EX: dumbell snatch, and various other olympic type lifts (i don'tknow the proper names, but along the lines of cleans, jerks, that kind of stuff.
