CT - The latest video capsule on thinarmy regarding whole body training was a great summary of the pros and cons. You specifically mentioned that 2Bs won’t get what we need (strong mind muscle connection and pump).
Is there a good way to “fix” that so a 2N can at least get a strong pump by prioritizing one muscle group each day (pushing one day, legs one day, pulling one day) and using some supersets or trisets just in that group? Pairing a compound lift and one or two isolation lifts for that group.
Then use regular compound lifts for the rest of the body that day, mostly 3-4 heavy sets and maybe making one set a back off set just to get a good pump?
