Whats your time frame in the gym? How many days a week do you train? whats your recovery like in your mind?

With those being ask when Eric gets back to me with what he feels i will let you know more..
Thanks for taking your time out to discuss this

I am largely a beginner, so I basically do a total of 5 main exercises over the entire week plus 4-5 assistance lifts, which are -

Bench
Military Press
Squats
Deadlifts
Powercleans

plus
barbell rows
pull-ups
Pin-press
Bottom-up squat
Front squat.

As for training, I train thrice a week and my sessions last between 45 minutes on the light day to 75-80 minutes on the two heavier days.

As far as recovery goes, I think mine is average / shade below average. I find it useful to back down every 3rd or 4th week and then again up the weights next week.

Yes, this can be done using 2 exercises for large groups and 1 for smaller groups. As long as the principles are applied it will still work well!
Lol, typed up everything before I got here ^^^. Good to know Eric's opinion. At some point this year, after my current routine is done, I am thinking of trying P/RR/S on a full-body scheme.
