After the recent birth of my son, I have quickly figured out that I am not going to have a lot of time to train. As a result, the block periodization format that I was using is out and I will be shifting to something simple yet effective for building strength. Despite my tendency to be a bit of an iron nerd, I'm a big fan of old-school training programs.
After reading some articles on the training of Bob Hoffman, Paul Anderson, Hepburn, and others, you realize getting stronger doesn't need to be overly complicated. While you still have to be smart about what you do (and being a freak of nature doesn't hurt either), hard work is still the key ingredient to success.
With that said, and the fact that I've always enjoyed training with heavy weights (although what I'm lifting now can't be considered 'heavy') using the basic lifts, I chose the program popularized by Doug Hepburn. If anyone is interested in reading about this program in more detail, feel free to post and I will pass along any info I have.
For the time being, I will be lifting only twice a week, so my sessions will be full-body in nature; moreover, I'm going to settle for a lower working weight to start off with just so I can leave room for more progression over time and get re-acclimated to lifting heavy singles.
