Phil, thanks for the comments. I actually do pull-ups each workout also. 3 to 4 sets of 6. Started at 3-4 sets of 3 a few months ago, then about every 2 months or so, add 1 rep. Hope to be doing sets of 10 by end of this year. I also do one armed barbell presses. All of this is based on
Pavel's PTP. Pullups are using GTG--also from Pavel. Occasionally I'll do some barbell curls but not too often
Workout looks like this:
Overhead Press 2X5
(Optional) Pullup 1X6
I change the order of exercises almost every time I'm in there though usually I do Squats/DL (or DL/Squats) back-to-back once I've "claimed" the rack.
I start the cycle light with weaker exercise. i.e. for bp do close hand --move hands out after several workouts of increasing weight DL-move from regular DL to romanian Squat--move from Front to back Just started doing military presses after months of one arm barbell presses. Felt awesome. Previously could barely budge 135. Now can do 5 clean reps with 150. Want to be able to (push) press my weight.
Think I'll be able to within a few months. Also, late in the cycle I'll drop to 3X week or drop one or two of the exercises if I'm too burnt. Never go to failure except maybe last day
