Military Press 8x3
Dips (weighted) 8x3

Friday
Leg Ext 2x12
Incl DB Press 2x12
Lat Raise 2x12

Loaded Carries and sprints Wednesday and Friday

Week 2 goes to pull/push with same excercises sets/reps
Difference is Friday is obviously a pull day as follows
RDL 2x12
DB Row 2x12
Bent over Lat Raise 2x12
DB Hammer Curl 2x12

Alternate back and forth week to week de-load every 8th week + 2.5% on weight per week
That's it simple, handful of excercises with Frequency hitting different rep ranges.


#2

I actually don't mind it.

I would not do double exercise on the same day (dips and bench for example), but that is me.

I prefer the 10x3, but again, that is me and the 8x3 is very good.


#3

Yeah could see it working well. On the higher rep days I would vary/play around with higher rep schemes and maybe bit more volume also 3x20, 4x12, 5x20 etc
