This has cast huge doubt in my mind as to what routine i should be doing. Until this, i was happy with my adaptation of Boring But Big, doing the 4 main lifts twice a week each (1 heavy, 1 light), with accessory work down to once a week (leg curl, chins, rows and shrugs).

To me thats good enough, it allows for higher volume because its 3 days rest before i do that movement again. Most traditional FBWs are split into an A/B style so you might only do a lift once a week, as is common with bench/press on Starting Strength. Whereas, im guarenteed to do the main lifts twice a week, once pushing high weight for low reps and the other doing 50-60% of 1rm for 50reps and using the fat gripz, so still not easy even though its "light"

So i have 2x a week frequency and a decent amount of volume. Maybe i could squat heavy more often, but other than that, is my routine shit enough for me to change everything when i dont feel like it?
