There are many ways to go about this. Also keep in mind that I’m just experimenting. Who knows? Maybe this will be a cock-up for me.
The point of the <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=498002"target=“new”>blog was simply this – don’t be afraid to experiment, especially when some very large, smart and experienced people seem to be gravitating towards this kind of training. And many of them BLOW UP after leaving the five day split, one or two muscle groups per day routine. Gotta drop the ego and give it a shot.
[Side rant: Ever notice that upon hearing new info from a respected strength coach (like the folks who advised me on this), some people become curious, ask clarifying questions and try out the info. But others get sarcastic, never try the ideas, and only post to try to “one up” the expert and look smart, usually with lots of Internet penis-waving and plumage-flaring. Side rant over.]
Honestly, I don’t think it will be a cock-up at all for me. The novelty and change (both physical and mental) alone will solicit some new gains, I’m sure.
Again, lots of ways to do a program like this, but I’m going to start by switching up the exercises each session. Example: Monday’s back work = one-arm rows. Tuesday = pull-ups. Friday = pulldowns.
Chief: This is the first week of the program for me, but so far workouts are about 45 minutes long.
Good stuff, guys. This is what being a think tank is all about.
