Bam,

Sorry for the hijack. This has the makings of a great thread...let's keep it going.

There are exclusions for me: preachers (distal bicep tendon), cleans (mobility resting a load on the shoulders), and lunges (because lunges suck).

I do ten exercises / ten sets total (one work set per).

Your question on training frequency is a great one. IMHO, I think this is what most geezers miss.... more frequent is not necessarily better. I train movements every 10 days....but...I believe this is highly individualized. It took me 4 years to realize this was optimal to me. For others it could be 4 days, a week, and so on.
What I have a difficult time understanding is how a masters lifter won't explore this...meaning..."my program says E.O.D. so by God it's E.O.D.".

Here's a question for the geezer masses - or anyone for that matter:
if you discover you can get stronger with less frequency...would you train less frequently?
