Default A/B Fullbody Workout

I have been putting a lot of thought into my workouts, always refining and evolving trying to make them better as I learn my body and the limitations and special challenges that come with fullbody workouts. I am going to use this thread to make some mental notes on why I am doing what I am doing, for anyone that cares.

First off, I feel right now less is more for me. I prefer hitting it hard 3 days per week, so this AB split will stick to the MWF structure. I will sometimes have crazy days because of my travels, so I may not always stick yo the days of the week, but I will continue to alternate.

Along these lines, I don't feel I need to hit bodyparts every other day right now to make great gains. I have been rocking PRs lately while hitting the gym only twice a week or so because of work. (John Christie, I tip my hat to you). PRs I have hit these past couple weeks with fewer workouts:

--Barbell Rows 315 x 5
--Deadlifts 545 x 2
--Shrug Bar Deadlifts 495 x 8
--Shrugs 700 x 5
--Rack Deadlift 765 x 1
--Dumbbell Bench 150's x 2

(more coming...)
