I know, I'm hilarious. But yeah, these are the sort of things I think I should probably try.
I'm not intending to stop squatting completely really ever, I'd always like to have a variation in there, so I will always be trying to work up (300lb+ front squat sets, 400lb+ back squat sets are of course the goal). I'm just trying to ensure when I reach whatever weight I end my "gradual bulk" on, I've chosen wisely with exercises that work muscles to their full aesthetic potential and come out in decent shape rather then with a huge ass, no upper chest, no arms.. whatever.
Basically, my idea of progression is the weights used is #1 method until you are at a pretty advanced level, BUT since there are a lot of strong ass guys who look like crap (bodybuilding wise), I believe I'd be fool to (completely) avoid thinking about form/pump and what exactly it is I'm hitting. I'm just looking to train smart as well as hard.
