Just want to add here, what a FANTASTIC way to train. Mike & Cper I might be mistaken but it seems like you guys are looking for a more strength/performance element (repeated, heavy barbell movements for example) that feels mISSING from this program.
I feel the same way so what I've been doing to make Best Damn Workout quite compatible with strength/skill style (without destroying the integrity of the program/hypertrophy gains) is to treat the FIRST TWO main exercises as the main dish -> ramped up in 3 reps and a heavy PRIMER set (1 rep, maybe isometric hold) 20-50% weight ABOVE my first (and technically "only") work set.
This replicates the "performance" element/ramping that we've all come to appreciate with CT's style.
As an example I push day I would ramp up in 3's on the bench and go past my first work set of 5/rest pause by quite a bit to prime the nervous system. Similarly with a frankenstein squat on that day.
I'm also using compound exercises (for the first two major movements of every workout) most of the time and only doing the machine/isolation if I feel particularly worn down (almost never) or if I just want to "pump" it out. This also serves to really juice my perfomrance/intensity on the 3rd and 4th (and 5th and 6th) exercises which are for more "ancillary" muscles & assistance movements naturally
CT if you don't mind comment on this approach? I find it satisfies my performance craving while combining this bodybuilding, 1 top set low vol/high freq approach.
Also mike i'd be curious to hear how you compare the Strength/Skill circuit (this is the 6 day, 3 lifts lots of power cleans right) vs. best damn in term sof enjoyment & also size/physique gains?
