Minimalist Log

Ive been a long time lurker and infrequent poster here on this site. Still very early in my lifting career but i have done at least 4-6 months of both the Texas Method and 5/3/1, both with really good gains. However I have a serious case of program ADHD and the more I read about other programs the more I want to try them. To couple with this life has gotten in the way of consistently heading to the gym. Ive toyed with the idea on just sticking to a simple two-day aweek workout but have never gone through with it for whatever reason.

However recently certain forum and article topics have got me interested in trying a self-made simple program. My goal is to be strong as hell, and if I look good after doing it thatd be great too. My workouts will only consist of 3 lifts/excersises, and my excersise choices will only be snatch, clean, press, squat, pull-ups, push-ups, and dips. Cardio will kept down while ab/core work will be thrown in every so often on when I feel i need it.
