Started yesterday.

Man! There was a serious decrease in weight! I haven't done 12 reps of anything in such a long time. My muscle endurance sucks.

My shoulders were wiped after 36 bench presses and then 36 militaries.

But I felt pretty good after the inital fatigue wore off. Even had some extra energy for the girlfriend ;) later in the day.

Today is deadlift, front squat, GM and shrug day.

As I said above, I'm going to use a bit higher weight and do less reps on the DL.

And, I'm gonna replace front squats w/ something else, 'cause I can't do them well: they hurt my shoulders. My form sucks, too.

Any thoughts on what to change the Front Squats to?

My thoughts are to keep it to free weights..

Assuming you are doing Olympic squats on Lower 2 (A2G)...

Lower 1:

- Low box squats: My favorite

- Power squats (wide stance parallel)

- Zercher squats: If your shoulder hurts doing front squats, then maybe not a good idea..

- Hack squats

- Narrow stance squats (possibly heels elevated on 10 pound plates)

Just almost finished the first week (Just have to do the second lower day).

Is it me, or does this routine have a LOT of shoulder work and not enough (comparably) upper back work?

Quote:
Upper Day 1:
- Bench Press
- Close Grip Bench
- Military Press (standing)
- Pendlay Row

Lower Day 1:
- Deadlift
- Front Squat Squat
- Goodmorning
- Barbell Shrugs

Upper Day 2:
- DB Bench
- Incline Bench
- Plate Raise
- Pull-Up w/ weight

Lower Day 2:
- Squats
- SLDL
- Reverse Hyper/or Dimel Deadlifts
- Dumbell Shrugs

Pendlay Rows, Deadlifts, SLDL's = 3 out of 4 days.

If you STILL need more, you could dump the plate raises for another horizontal pull...Incline press works the delts fine. Something like:

Incline Barbell
Cable Rows?
DB Bench
Weighted Pullups

Enjoying this routine.

Doing each rep range for 2 weeks. Up to the 3x8's now. For legs I've been doing 3x8 thoughout (and deads 3x6). After next week, I will do 3x4 on legs, but much heavier weight.

However, I think when I finish this, I'm gonna do my old 5x5 but with a 3x8 scheme so as to fit it in time-wise. DL's will be 3x5.

But who knows? I still have a few weeks to figure something out.

Thanks for the update! I was wondering if you stuck with it or not.

I think you'll really enjoy the 6 x 4. If you wanted to go one further, 10 x 3 would be fucking fun!! That was one of my favorites. Doing heavy triples with a restricted amount of rest between sets gets you pumped up hard.
