Ok, so my program-hopping days are over - i'm doing a SS-type program until linear gains stop. Meanwhile i am going to eat like Roseanne Barr at a buffet with a lipo-clinic in the back, and once the gains don't come every week anymore i'll figure out what to do. This is how i came up with this program: first off, SS programs all contain a squat, a press, and somehow picking shit up off of the ground. I am too easily bored to do the same three things every day, so there has to be some variation - thoerwise i might be tempted to switch programs again. Then i decided that there are some assistance lifts that i did for high reps during Wender's 5/3/1 that i feel help me a lot, so i wanted there to be one very "minor" lift per day as well. There are three training days, and i will train every other day. EDIT: some changes DAY 1: Squat 3 * 5 Incline DB bench 3 * 5 [This is the press - i chose incline DB because i haven't done them before now and i like doing DB bench on one day and BB on another] Powercleans 5 * 3 [More sets and lower reps because Rip says so in SS] Skullcrushers 3 * 10 DAY 2: Deadlift 1 * 5 + 5 singles[Lower volume on deadz because Rip says so, switched places with today's squat variation because i want to have lots of energy for deadlifts.] Front Squat 3 * 5 [I love front squats, they are great for core strength] SOHP 5 * 5 [My OHP is puny, so i believe that the higher volume will not hurt since the weight is so low, see http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f13/squat-overtraining-1338847/ thread for background to this reasoning] DAY 3: Squats 3 * 5 Bench 3 * 5 Zercher Deadlifts 3 * 5 [These are cool, and i haven't done them before] Chins 3 * 10 [Must chin] Inspired by Wendler's 5/3/1 I will deload every four weeks. I read up a bit on singles, and I think doing singles for deadlifts is wicked fun so I think that the last workout before each deload i will do nothing but 4-10 single-rep deadlifts. This should be fun, shocking for the system and very grunty/sweaty/manly. Thoughts?
