Alrighty, I consider myself fairly average in the strength department, even though that’s my main reason for lifting; I want to compete in powerlifting, and I have a physical job in which a little extra strength can be a lifesaver.
Basically I do full-body every other day, very low volume, basically ramping up to a heavy set on deadlift, bench press, chinups and pause squats; I squat and chin every other day while deadlifting and benching every other workout; although my strength is going up very very well, I feel like I gain size very quickly.
Since I do moderate reps, I never get sore; my dilemma is my calves. I have 27in thighs and 16 inch calves and it’s now beginning to bother me. I am not going to do high reps. Period. I do not enjoy them, and although I know I will eventually adjust to the workload, my work will suffer in the meantime, and that’s something I cannot accept.
I work very very hard and pride myself on my performance, I will not sacrifice a day of sub par work for an inch on my body. If anyone has any reasonable ideas for me I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance, and yes, I love commas and semicolons.
