That looks interesting, Austin! Is that monday a ramping 5x5 or across?

The more I read, the more I am inclined to think I should hammer away at squats as often as possible, then bench, row, and clean twice a week, deadlift, OHP and Chins once a week.

I could do squats 6 days a week, too. 3 times a week at the gym, heavy, medium, and speed, then do sets of Squat jumps, Goblets, and maybe OH squats at home on the off days.

Squats are my biggest weakness, if I focus on that for a bit, then the likelyhood of all my lifts getting better seems pretty high even if they have a lesser focus. Squats are a big tide that should raise all boats!

Thanks, Austin!

I'm now thinking of something like this:

M- Cleans (85-90%), Squat (H), Bench (speed), Row (L)
W- C+P (to 100% of PP), Front squat (M), Deadlift (H), Chinups, Dips
F- P Snatch (L), Squat (speed), Bench (H), Row (H)

Then I could phase in BW, Goblets, etc. on the off days as I get used to the routine. This also allows for adding in some specific assistance stuff as it becomes obviously needed, because each day has fewer exercises. I could do squats first too. I'm only keeping it with a power move first as I like doing them first as you know you are warmed up fully by the time you start squats.

But, I still like BtB's idea the best. We'll see. Got a week to decide! Thanks for the help!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
