Day 4 - rest
Day 5 - Moderate - I (cleans - 8 x 3, press, rows, front squats - 5 x 5)
Day 6 - rest
Day 7 - Moderate - II (bench, squats, one arm snatch - 5 x 5)
Day 8 - rest
Day 9 - Heavy - II (cleans, press and deadlifts - singles, doubles and triples)
Day 10 - rest

Repeat.

No idea how this will pan out.
Interesting approach for sure. I hope it works well for you. I never thought about cycling different HLM days like this.

If nothing else, I'm a huge programming/record-keeping geek, so staying on point shouldn't be a problem. I'm also looking for a new challenge. I'll let you know how it goes!

Thank you! Just about everything I've read online from people that have tried the ABC approach is either "it's too confusing" or "it was working really well but real life got in the way." Haha, I don't have to worry about a "real life", and I completely understand the concepts behind it and am a giant scheduling/record-keeping nerd.
