Hi Dr. Darden,
Always been intrigued by your writings (been around long enough to do all your challenges believe it or not)
My current situation leaves my training in a garage gym, AKA no machines and only free weights (DBs and BBs), So when I see some of your program recommendations I basically have to eliminate half the exercise recommendations straight away.
Is there a place you have written about training exclusively with barbells and dumb bells? Or if not do you have some kind of “template” you use to design a workout? For example
Exercise A - Squat patten (Back or Front)
Exercise B - Veritcal Pull
Exercise C - Horizontal pull
Or if I were to try and create my own, Based on the readings I’ve done in the past week it seems like many of your workouts are about 10 exercises, working up to a top set of 8-12 all out to failure, yeah? Do you rotate exercises throughout the week or just keep the same ones until they stall?
Thanks sir, great to have you here.
