Any particular reason why you’re not doing ABBH as written? You’re following many of the same exercises and parameters, so it should work well. I’m just curious why you paired your exercises the way you have it listed rather than the way it’s originally written.[/quote]
I’m glad that you picked that up. I’ve done ABBH before and included the calf training but my calves are really well developed compared to the rest of my body (possibly due to golf on a hilly course?). Anyways I’m not that bothered about my calves and I’d rather try to match my calf development in my chest, shoulders, back and upper legs.
I’m quite lean at the moment but my abs are still poor. I’ve never done any serious ab training apart from my last ABBH session. I wanted to do some oblique work and aome vacuum work rather than some half assed crunches at the end of my workout.
That’s why I changed the lay out of the program but I didn’t know how to change the original ABBH leg and abs days. ZEB mentioned that supersetting squats could be hard. I have done that day already squatting to horizontal and didn’t fail but it was only 60% of my 1RPM. Chad Waterbury puts squats in giant supersets but I didn’t know what exercises to superset them with. I chose shoulder work because there is no direct shoulder work in ABBH but I do know dips,rows and bench presses all hit the shoulders so I don’t know if I’m overtrainig there.
Thanks you all for your comments so far. I’d love to hear your thoughts on changing anything, the exercises, reps, weight.
