I was talking to a guy earlier, my exact problem when I tried fullbody was going full bore every time, whether I felt like it or not. I'm gonna try to leave some on the table for the next day.

Leave a lot more on the table than you think you should to begin with.

Always start small.

Ask yourself: what are your goals?

To get strong

Okay so what is your favorite lift? ALL Powerlifters choose ONE lift they push more than the others. Geared users always bank on Squats because that is their money-maker. But for RAW lifters, most people opt for Deadlifts but there is no blanket rule here.

Assume you want to push Squats and Bench the most.

OK

That means the most minimal exercises you need are: Squats and Bench.

Squats require hip movements. So throw in one posterior chain movement. Throw in one vertical pulling movement one row movement and one unilateral leg movement. Plus add in Deadlifts.

Now you have:
1. Squats
2. Bench
3. PC exercise
4. Vertical Pulling
5. Rowing
6. Deadlifts
7. Unilateral Leg Exercise

I still stand by my statement of strength guys not needing more than 4 days of serious training per week (even less than 4 is OK)

Now assume you want to do one more squat variation - that is fine. So you have 8 exercises now. Over 4 days.

Day 1 = Squats and Unilateral Leg Exercise
Day 2 = Deadlifts and Pull-ups
Day 3 = Rows and Bench
Day 4 = Squat Variation and PC exercise

You still end up short on the pressing work but that is the point: you start SMALL and then you add things as you go along...every 6 weeks or so you make a few small changes like throwing in some overhead work or tricep work, etc.

For some lifts, variation is a must - deadlifts. I found no value in frequent floor pulling. Squats on the other hand I could do daily if I wanted to.

Right now I still use a variation of this type of programming. It takes a lot of discipline. You can't go in trying to kill yourself each day.
So what did you do with the deadlifts BTB? Rotate high - low pulls, deficits, things like that?

Best Meet Lifts:
Squat = 325
Bench = 210
Dead = 353
Total = 888

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I do appreciate this. I'm determined to give 7 days a real go, but I'm sure things will change down the road.
