    OK, so I got this 3 Day Split from Carnal Salvations post..

    Day one: Deadlifts
    Deadlifts 5X5
    Stiff Legged Deadlifts 3-4X5-8
    Bent Over Barbell Rows 4X6
    Shrugs 3-4X6-12

    Day Two: Bench
    Bench Press 5X5
    Skull Crushers 3-4X6-8
    Overhead Press (seated, standing, dumbbells or barbells) 3-4X6-8
    DB Bench Press 3X8-12
    Add in an assistance lift for what you consider your weakest area

    Day Three: Squats
    Squats 5X5
    Front Squats 3-4X6
    Whatever ham/lowback/quad assistance you?d like, but keep it limited

    I was wondering what kind of rest I need after each day? I usually go one day in, one day off, should I take two off after Deadlifts? Should I be training more than 3 times a week?

    I know rest is most important but it seems like the days I don't work out and I just eat like a maniac I feel fat and stuff, but the days I work out I feel godly.

    train three days a week can call it done. MWF works well for most people. go for a jog a couple days a week, and do some interval training or hill sprints or something on the others.

    One thing, is that it seems for most folks, going DEADLIFT 3 days rest SQUAT 2 days rest DEADLIFT 3 days rest etc. works best. The heavy pulling routines I do and have other people do tend to take a lot of gas out of the tank. If ya do it right.

    What kinda rest are we looking at in between each of these sets. I know i should know this and i usually rest for about 1:30-2min between heavy sets but is that too short for a load heavy program like this?
    What do you guys think? I time my rests using a stop watch so if you say 2min then I make sure it's 2 min.
