Long time no see!
 
Hello friends :) hope you still remember me :)

so it's 2 or 3 months without being here, and I missed the board. Had a sudden accident in my family and although I continued training I didn't update with what was going on with me.

sooo.. back to business. was thinking about doing texas-rippetoe/eric's again. how about this set-up?

mon:
5x5 reg squat
5x5 bench
5x5 T bar

wed:
front squat 3x3
press 5x5
hyperextensions 2-3x6-8
chins to failure (3 sets)

fri:
1 set of 5 rep's - bench
1 set of 5 rep's - squat
5 sets of 3 reps - power clean (deadlift is killing me and I really want to do power cleans this time).

going to eat lots of proteins, and get 300 calories above maintenance per day.

I'd like to mention that the last time I was doing the "texas method" I did everything exactly like I was supposed to, but my bench simply didn't improve and it was dissapointing for me.

Looks good...just out of curiosity, why only 3X3 for front squats?

I'm guessing to keep the volume down cause its probably light anyways. Probably just a "maintenance" squat in the middle of the week more for keeping limber and whatnot.

Just my guess.

Hi Rd welcome back mate.

Set up looks good too man. :)

i would advise you to do more variations of the same exercise, actually.

ohh guys :(

today I did intensity day, but I felt sooo fucking bad. I think I'm going to wait 3 weeks until I'm done with anatomy course since it's putting too much stress on me. I can't even stand for 50 seconds with a barbell on my back.

sorry for opening an irrelevant thread... you can delete it now.

will be back.

btw sentinel - can you elaborate? i thought this routine is very well rounded and even as mr. rippetoe himself write it (just changed deadlift with power-cleans)
