I know that «you shouldn't F* with the program» but seriously, I'd appreciate your thoughts and what's the actual reason for not doing this(apart from the fact that it would be blasphemy).
I know it is blasphemy but I have no issue with the dropping of power cleans.

I've been considering doing this:
Mon: Squats, Presses(alternate bench/oh), barbell rows
Wed: Squats, Presses(alternate bench/oh), Deadlifts
Fri: Squats, Presses(alternate bench/oh), chins/pull-ups (max)
That's pretty close to several variations I have pieced together. I like it.

Quote:
there is probably a reason why we do two different presses
Yes, several reasons. I big one is training balance and shoulder girdle health.

Quote:
I intuitively feel I should do two equivalent pulling movements?
In my opinion it's a good idea. Think in terms of pushing and pulling planes. The bench and row are on the same plane. The OHP and pullups are on the same plane. I think this balance is good to have in a program, to some degree.

Quote:
However doing chins daily might not be realistic once I'm on a heavy program. What are your thoughts on this?
If you were really weak at chins and wanted to improve I would have you use them more frequently.
