In any case, good training and have a great 2012.
I greatly appreciate your input at any time buddy. I will bear your advice in mind - I can see how it would be easy to get carried away with C&P and be a broken mess in about three weeks time haha
What i really want to do is stick with a training method for at least 6 months to a year or so, as I have suffered a little from lack of direction in the gym recently. I find the C&P approach highly motivational and the variety suits my lifestyle at the moment as I am on a shift pattern that changes week to week.
Taking your advice I will gradually step it up in intensity and keep an eye on things carefully. I've taken some photos to compare progress in 6 months time :/ If it doesn't work out I will revert to my 5/3/1 plan, as I enjoy this set up very much as well.
Edit - I will start adding my grappling training to the log as well, as it helps me keep track of things.
