Default cont.

I was working out 5 days per week, and basically doing some sort of direct leg work daily! I was still getting stronger. This was also the case with the gymnastic stuff. You work daily, but NEVER go to failure.

Your were training both your muscles, and your CNS to do more work. I was ready for the weekends and the two days off, but was not fried. By Monday I was ready to hit it again. I was sleeping better, and had the energy I had been missing, because of my work schedule. I had gotten back to the point that I needed my aftenoon workout. It got rid of my stress from work, and I was having fun again doing something I had always loved doing.

This is a real busy time of year at work, so I'm going to a 3X week full body, based on Reg Parks old routines. Basic heavy work with about 5 compounds per workout. Some of the moves will change each workout, but I'm aiming to hit as much as possible with 3 one hour sessions a week.

I was thinking today of starting a log. I usually write down everything anyway as I do it, so I can keep track of what I've done. I'm fried after work, and if I don't write it down, I will forget. I was so mentally drained one day after work, I forget my own phone number.

First of all wow, you must have a crazy job.

I am finding your views on training very interesting and I may have to do an experiment with olympic lifting style. I liked the program that you had previously posted. Right now I am training like a powerlifter and I really like it, but I am not saying I would not ever try an oly routine.

Thank you for the wealth of information and I look forward to reading more in the future!

The Oly lifting is so technical. I really love that about it. One of the hardest things is the flexability in the down position. Well, being down in the snatch position with the bar overhead is pretty freaking hard as well.

First time I tried an overhead squat, well, it was not good. I considered setting up a table in front of Wally world, and selling Girl Scout cookies. I could only do 40lbs the first time I tried it. I can do 100lbs now, and it's hard.

I work as an Airline Dispatcher. It is the Airlines mission control center. Some days are good, and some days are real bad!!

I think the overhead squat is one of the all time best exercises. There are so many Olympic style lifts I wish I could play with...overhead squats, and push presses. Someday I might have room to do those.

Have you ever thought of doing Doug Hepburn's old routine?
