@Christian_Thibaudeau

I based this program on jc simo, poliquin and ideas from you. I plan to just keep running this. The idea is to eat the veggies first aka do the stuff I don’t enjoy and at the end do the stuff I like.

Thoughts?

C1. Front Squats 4x 5-7

Love JC. I’ll take a look when I have some free time

I did the chest workout and I found I cant feel the pecs on flies. I miss the nautilus pec deck. With db flies I find there’s too much dead space. I am wondering what is a good exercise to pre-exhaust the chest. I got long arms. I am thinking cable chest press supinated.

I’ve never really liked flies. use squeeze presses
