## My mistake i read it wrong... deads will be on fridays instead of rows as perscribed
The squat/dead combo is intense but really feels good after you have given the program some time, and your really working it.
Your other question about dropping squats midweek.
Starting light on the program is important. It is far better to start light, and work up than to start too heavy. Consider even just squatting at 135 for the firt week and then to work up to find where you are comfortable for the week.
## I have decieded i will run is exactly as perscibed so will be squatting 3 times per week. I have a rough idea what i will be lifting at. i am just gonna do 50% of my normal weight for the big exercises, curls and dips will be normal... Calf raises are new to me as i have always done them on a machine, but these will be done free weight as well
Worksets weights that you have been used to, are not really applicable. You have to reset where your working at.
About your age. I'm nearly 49, and I still can build new muscle. You should have no issue building new muscle at 36.
I hope thats the case
One question about the dips. Are these upright tricep dips, rather than leaning forward and using the chest as well ???
