Yeah the shoulder was a nuisance. I think it was quite mild as far as dislocations go: it only popped out for second (was kinda cool to see the humerus bulging out of my arm, I suppose) and the only thing it prevented me from doing was OHP for the first four weeks. At the end of the programme my overhead strength was back to where it was, and the silver lining is that it sent me to the physio where I'm getting some imbalances sorted out.
I plan on running it again next year as both myself and my training partner loved it. It's a good programme for learning that you don't always need to work at very high intensities to build strength, and I was thinking that you could use the same scheme to extend the programme by a month at the beginning for extra volume/hypertrophy, or the end for extra intensity.
No, it was actually this bunch of crazy Germans
And you're right I've been doing a single every minute on the minute, and this week I'll be looking to throw in the odd double.
Thanks for those links, I hadn't seen those when I was reading up on density training. I like Martin Rooney's stuff, and that Canadian Bear programme is definitely interesting. Looks pretty brutal and I'd like to give it a shot next year. I had planned on just doing density stuff over Christmas but maybe I'll stick with it for a bit longer as I enjoy it.
I'm still on the fence on upper/lower vs full body. I see CT has a bit of both in that programme, and Staley says full body is fine if you manage fatigue. This week I ended up training three days in a row because of scheduling, and my lower back was pretty stressed by the end of it. I also think that the upper body density stuff I did on Monday meant that the OHP yesterday was harder than it would have been otherwise.
