    I've been on the Bill Star 5x5 since November and I have to say I'm a little bored. I'm taking the week of spring break off and when I come back I'd like to start in on a different program. What program would you guys suggest? I've seen sheiko as a possibility. Let me know which ones you guys like. Hopefully is an excel spreadsheet because I am lazy.

    Only I think it would be better to put the "pull" day first, THEN the "push" day.

    I agree Steven, but I didn't mean for it to be in that order or anything it's just how I wrote it ;)

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the help. What would the team suggest for assistance excercises? Is this still a Mon/Wed/Fri split?

    I believe its a very good reason. If your not inspired to lift then your probably not going to give a shit, your body is probably pretty bored too. Its not like hes quitting lifting

    Are you kidding me? While you might enjoy doing the same lifts over, I am not one for monotony. What exactly is wrong with changing things up so that I continue to look forward to the gym with excitement?

    Crossfit is for weak men and some strong women. He has a vested interested in you losing the Race to 1500. Since I'm going to kick everyone

    I've googledmotherfucker, but that's about it. I haven't read any of this, so it may all be crap, but I'm interested in learning about it, too:

    I'm slightly ashamed that I understood that reference.

    There is nothing to be ashamed about, that is some of the finest programming of my youth.
