Looks like an intense workout. That volume would kill me :)

After 3 sets of 12 on the squats I would be looking for the stairs.

How do you handle weight on the sets of squats and deadlifts? Do you ruin percentages?

the program starts of very light according to wheights, cant go heavy on 3x12 deads and squats. using flat pyramid the first 4-6 weeks.

its first in week 7,8,9 im using "top-sets", with example the squat, 5x3:
3x220,3x230,3x240,3x250,3x260.

This is my general split:

Monday: DE Bench/Shoulders/Bench accessory

Wednesday: Squats/Front Squats/Pause Squats (probably the most brutal day)

Friday: Deadlift/Bench Press/back/biceps


Now, that's only a general guideline for my week. In reality, my week is much more hectic.

For example, this week I had to max-out on Sunday to find my maxes on MP/Squat/Front Squat so I don't kill myself the rest of the week with weight that's too heavy. And on Tuesday I was feeling restless and decided to go to the gym; ended up training my shoulders 3x in a row, and then had the most brutal leg day I've ever had yesterday. My legs are so sore I don't know whether it hurts more to sit or to stand.

In addition, I've had to move Friday's workout to today for various reasons; so now I'm Deadlifting with jello legs this afternoon. lol

Anyway, I keep my intensity very high as well; usually 30-90 second rest in between sets, depending on what I'm doing. I aim for a volume of 15-30 on most of my compounds, never dropping below 80% of my ORM.

I cycle some of my movements, but keep all the base compounds the same for each week.

That's pretty much it. I'm a big fan of the Chaos and Pain training methods, as outlined by Jaime Lewis in his blog.

wondering maybe use instead 4 weeks of 12-10-8-6r on the basic lifts, maybe just use
5 reps or less on the basics every 4week cycle, and go with the 12-10-8-6 reps on the assistance exercises every 4 week cycle.

looking like this maybe

week1
bench 5x5
barbell row 3x12
incline bench 3x12

week2
bench 5x3
barbell row 4x10
incline bench 3x10

week3
bench 3x3
barbell row 4x8
incline bench 4x8

week4
bench 3x1
barbell row 4x6
incline bench 4x6

a little powerbuilding inspired=) any toughts?
