I ran the Reeves for 21 weeks . I was at the point where I had no energy and was completely drained after doing the high rep sets at the weight I was using. I switched to this routine to get away from the high reps for a while. it seems to be just what the dr ordered.

8x185 +10 lbs from week before last( last week used dumbbells for the stretch)
4x6x95 = +5 lbs (used straps so that all concentration went on shoulders and back. really hit rear delts)
6,5 had nothing left
seated cable crunch 75lbs x 15x2 +5 lbs
Total time today was 1hr 25 minutes.
Squats felt good at 235 with 2 minutes rest. Im thinking that high pulls will stay where they are from last week and work the bhtnp and squats at this weight this week and next but next week go up on the high pull which makes squats and bhtnp harder. Progression is going to start slowing down I believe. I will try to work this way for a while and see how it works alternating progression from week to week.
I think the extra strength is a combanation between eating more and I have been back on test charge for a week. I figure If im going to eat more and push harder for progression, its a great time to boost the testosterone.
