Drunk Russian Part Deux
 
I'm breaking out the Drunk Russian program again starting tomorrow. Instead of doing good mornings 5 days a week I am going to squat and do fullbody workouts 5 days a week.

Still formulating my plan.

Sometimes I read over and over again on lifting forums what can't be done that it makes me want to go the other way and keep experimenting.

I am all for pushing the boundaries!!

But how are you going to regulate this? I've tried a variation of this after reading some Broz stuff; long story short it lead to an injured knee for 6 months, and I have usually have pretty good knees.

Drunk Russian Part Deux, back to the drunk Russian :) Nice, enjoy! Is that going to be a routine based on some of Pavel's stuff?

The original drunk russian was quite entertaining. Looking forward to this one :rockon:

Last time I did only one working set for each bodypart. Which lift I performed, and how heavy I went was based on how I felt that day.

Good mornings the first time around were with a moderate weight, slowly adding one rep per workout. Squats will be about the same. They will start with a moderate weight and seemingly low volume of singles.

For example, starting squats may be:

Monday - 325 x 5 singles
Tuesday - 325 x 6 singles
Wednesday - 325 x 7 singles
Thursday - 325 x 8 singles
Friday - 325 x 9 singles

Monday - 330 x 5 singles....

As with everything I do, regulation is based on body feel.

The squat aspect is based on that style of 5 day per week gradual slow-loading.

Last time around I used this template:

--Good Mornings. I will perform good mornings every day. My daily rep scheme will be: 5, 7, 9, 11, 3. On Monday I start will 5 singles, Tuesday 7, etc.

I am beginning this program at about 70% of my 1RM for good mornings (give or take). Each Friday I will add 5 pounds and reset the reps down to 3. Once I start feeling "too stressed" by the weight, I will begin micro loading each week.
