I think I understand what you're getting at about dieting. It sounds as though a proper body fat test would be very important in estimating where the program could possibly take me while maintaining 185 pounds. You're a very strong and accomplished lifter but you know many will preach that in order to get stronger one will eventually have to add more, appropriately, as their strength increases. Was there a point in your training where this was the case?
As far as a log goes, I was somewhat all over the place for the last couple years until finding your program about 3 months ago. I was stupid and bounced around from Starting Strength, 5/3/1, and some other aimless lifting that just wasted time. It was reading others logs and watching the success people were having that convinced me of Big - Just good Old School Periodization
So far in my limited experience I'd (after much trial and error) say that the numbers I'm reaching for each week are being lifted much more easily in comparison to the other programming I've experienced
Shit I almost forgot my original question, it was supposed to be the only one...
Do you discourage more back work?
Thank you, you're a busy guy, this'll be my last question
