Got me strong, lean and awesome pretty fast!

Good luck buddy
Thanks Swede.

As I've mentioned, I'm all for the big 4 myself, though I did initially want to prioritise OHP over bench press, as bench is not a Strongman exercise... now I'm doing them both equally in this (draft) Press routine.

I guess I might have to return deadlifts to the Back routine and just do more squats for legs

BUT I'm toying with another idea - that being making the Pull routine an intensive, upper-back and shoulder focused workout, with a larger variety of exercises.
