Thanks man. Yeah one more workout, either today or tomorrow depending on after work plans. Nice to have a little flexibility there.
This has been a pretty good program for me. It feels like it kick started some actual progress for me for the first time in a while, aside from my squat, but that’s likely my own doing. I didn’t really do any conditioning work which was a fail on my part, and I think it would have gotten me an extra rep here or there but alas. @T3hPwnisher mentioned the PR’s just creep up on you with this program and it’s a pretty spot on assessment. There was a time when I thought I had made a mistake with it but seeing it through to the end paid off.
Caveat is that the second half of the leader cycle I modified it to fit my travel schedule. It’s supposed to be 1 main lift a day plus assistance, but I wound up doing 2 main lifts a day and then full assistance days afterwards. Seemed to work out fine but definitely not what’s prescribed.
I’m going to give some of Alpha’s programming a shot next. It should be a pretty big spike in volume compared to what I’m used to. I’m pretty set on starting with his linear program on YouTube, and just seeing where I’m at after those 12 weeks. It’ll be nice to take a break from percentage based work for a bit.
