Man, that’s awesome.
Have you done other leg/back workouts? Zep, TDA, and Nova are all questioning my sanity. So I’m reconsidering my plan.
Edit: on your program it looks like you hit PRs weeks 4 and 7-10. How did week 4 feel? Was it smooth or a grinder? Other than the week 8 miss, have you pretty much nailed them all?[/quote]
Well, just got done with week 10.
I got 560 above the knees and just didn’t have the positioning to lock it out. However, at the start of this program my weakness was off the floor, so I’m chalking up this program as a success.
Here was my schedule
Monday - Chest
Tuesday - Back
Wednesday - DE Lower
Thursday - Shoulders and Arms
Friday - off
Saturday - Deadlifts
On my back days I made sure to put as little stress on the lower back as possible. Pullups, DB Rows, chest-supported T-Bar, facepulls, seated DB powercleans.
On my leg days (wed.), I played with it by feel. I did a lot of high rep stuff, squats 315x15, 365x8x3 are PR’s set. On week 5 when the DL weight falls back, I went for a 1RM and hit 450 for a 35# PR and somewhere in there I did a 405x4. Natural GHRs every Wed. and heavy ab work.
I had enough time to recover by Sat from these two sessions and feel that the Squat PRs are owed to all the heavy pulling.
