Thanks for the response Eric. Definitely some solid points in there, especially the one about learning how to choose from all these options that are seemingly just thrown at you. You never do learn.
I'm kind of come up with a crude workout plan. I've tried to implement many of the things that I know work for me.
Standing Military Press 5x3
DB Flyes (TUT)
Seated Cable Rows 1x5
Reverse Hypers 3x10
Tricep Pulldown 2x10
Olympic Squats 5x5
Upright Rows 2x10
Reverse Grip Pulldowns 2x10
Lat Pulldown 2x10
Yates Row 4x8
Incline Bench 3x8
Seated Cable Rows 5x5
Dumbbell Curls 2x10
-3 day routine, similar to DF 5x5 or ripps, etc. (Mon, Wed, Fri)
-Day 1 is hitting my pressing (ie. Triceps and shoulders) as well as working out my lower and upper back. By day 3 I should be recovered and at 100% for deads. MP is first because I want my shoulders to be fresh and sicne I'm soing Bench and flyes as a ss my bench won't be huge either.
-Day 2 is a higher volume upper day with heavy lower (5x5 squats)
-Day 3 is a must, I absolutely need those low rep high weight deads. Powercleans will follow and act as a sort of 'light squat' as well as shoulder development. Again Seated rows because those are very good for my back development. I'll have to watch my deads because that 3x1-3 is a deadly range as far as burning out is concerned so I'll manage that with small increments of loading (+5-10lbs per week). Usually heavy squatting is involved on my deadlift days but those squats are starting to impact my deadlifting, so I've axed them in favor of a heavier deadlift.
The plan as far as progression goes is to keep adding weight as per usual. As I progress I may need to make changes or substitutions. If I'm staring to feel burnt out or overtrained, then I'll deload and maybe switch to some new exercises. Most likely my decisions will be based on whats happening at that time and not what I have written down on paper.
OK, so this is what I've come up with and sort of why I've done what I've done. Again feedback is appreciated, I'd like to know if you think this will work and why/why not
