    Okay so this week is finally the week that I hit the gym hard.

    I'm looking at a 4 day split. I'm training at a local highschool and due to their class schedules, I can train mond,tues, thurs, friday and keep the lifting session under an hour and 45 minutes.

    All I really have access to is a power rack, barbell/plates, DB's up to 100 and some glute ham raise machines.

    Any ideas?

    So you have access to everything you need? What is the point of this thread? I'm sure you can formulate a routine on your own man, just start lifting again and stop talking about lifting.

    That does sound like everything you need... I mean what more is there to need?

    Where do you see a real limitation at?

    Other than the scheduling, I don't see the limitations.

    Well not really. The plan I was doing (Carnal's) for a while required quite a bit of cable work. Pull throughs, pull downs, tricep extensions, as well as hypers.

    I'm thinking

    MON
    Deadlift
    Rack Pulls
    BOR's
    GHR's
    Farmer's walks

    TUES
    BP
    Pin presses
    Incline DB Presses
    Skullcrushers
    core work

    THURS
    OHP
    Chins
    Plate Raises
    DB Tricep extention

    FRI
    Squats
    Step ups (or Front Squats)
    GM's
    GHR's

    Essentially I'll keep the main compound movements low, and the assistance lifts at higher reps (around 8) save for Rack pulls and Pin Presses.

    This is kind of a hybrid.

    I made the most progress when I was doing the standard WSBB program (the 4 day split) only I was doing repetition days, instead of DE days.

    The plan Carnal drew up for me was pretty similar to this, only it had higher volume, and utilized some assistance that I can't really do at this gym.

    the point is... you have more than enough equipment to lift right... pick a different routine if you don't have the equipment for it.

    Seriously mate, you could lift for years with that equipment without running out of variety/progression.

    You can do all the pull through and extension stuff with bands if you want to. Or you could just do the 125 variations that are possible with barbells & dumbbells.

    Lot of new guys on here. Wow it's been a long time.


    Anyway, I went today... and called it quits.

    I woke up with a bad cold that I'd been trying to fight off all week, and my lower back injury hadn't really recovered. When I started doing DL's I could feel it really twinging and straining. So I'm just going to continue with the routine starting tomorrow. I'm guessing that by Thurs (Squat day) the lower back should be a lot better.

    I'm pretty sure I can finally edge my total up to 1200 by late July. We'll see what happens.

    Dude - that's the same setup/schedule that I've been doing for the past 3 years.

    You're good to go...
