wow, now thats HIT… or laziness.

how about you go polar opposites here and try some HFT? and since you’re quite split up here go upper/lower or full body. mix things up, and get into the gym more often, but of course stop going to failure on every set…

haven’t seen anyone here recommend a program like yours for some time…

The fake <150 pounder cutting threads are at least a little funny…

If you’re really 270 at 6% body fat, why do you need our advice?

not enough recovery

Instead of GetJACKED you should GetTRAINING more then once a week.

Stop with the failure training and start doing a more full-body or movement split at least 2 times a week, 3-4 being preferable.

You are correct, I should reduce the volume a little.

Thanks for the help!

awww, you almost had me for a second there, but then you took advice instead of arguing. It really stopped being realistic then for me.

Of the 4 total posts you have here on T-Nation, you wrote an article in another thread about how to get over a plateau. The writing looks familiar. Maybe you are “The Fool”?
