Need Something Different


Hey guys im just finishing up my cycle of madcows 5x5 week 12 and here are my numbers for the big three 5 rpm squat:300x5 ; bench 275x5; deadlift 335x5; im loving the PRs but ive become kinda bored with it and want to switch back to a more bodybuilding type split..heres one im thinking of doing 4 day split mon/tues/thurs/fri ..

im 5'9 205 lbs. .. kinda put on some fat from the madcow 5x5 because i was just concentrating on intaking enough calories especially for the later weeks. I still want to keep some type of 5x5 with this program for squats and dls because i feel that those rep ranges I respond the best with for those exercises.
