Haha. Gotta love that. He sounds like a bit of a dickwad to be honest, but hopefully I'm wrong...


Anyway, while you've chosen a slow progression scheme, progress is progress, as they say. Regular rep PRs are a typical feature, from what I've read, and that can't be bad for overall strength and muscle building.

I also favour full body for "novices" (like me, I mean), but I don't have much by way of evidence for or against anything.

Keep makin' dem gains, and you can't be going wrong.

This has cast huge doubt in my mind as to what routine i should be doing. Until this, i was happy with my adaptation of Boring But Big, doing the 4 main lifts twice a week each (1 heavy, 1 light), with accessory work down to once a week (leg curl, chins, rows and shrugs).

To me thats good enough, it allows for higher volume because its 3 days rest before i do that movement again. Most traditional FBWs are split into an A/B style so you might only do a lift once a week, as is common with bench/press on Starting Strength. Whereas, im guarenteed to do the main lifts twice a week, once pushing high weight for low reps and the other doing 50-60% of 1rm for 50reps and using the fat gripz, so still not easy even though its "light"

So i have 2x a week frequency and a decent amount of volume. Maybe i could squat heavy more often, but other than that, is my routine shit enough for me to change everything when i dont feel like it?

From all I've heard from others, and read here and there, what you're doing will surely get you there, but of course slower than with a linear full-body approach.

So it only depends how much of a hurry you're in. Nothing more than that, far as I can tell.

You are making good progress, don't change anything. The rep maxes each week will keep you going for a long time. Just keep up the good work and don't let the "change" bug bite you

Thanks fellas, i'll stick with it then.

From today:
Deadlift: 82.5x3, 92.5x3, 105 x5
Squat: 45kg 3x5
Shrugs: 100kg 3x10 PB
Abs: knee raises 10x10


Dont know what happened today but when i started squats i just felt like death..even warmind up with the bar i had absolutely no energy. I just couldnt. Its either my alergies acting up, or the effects of a weekend spent drinking, or a combination of both. In the end, 3x5 was all i could manage, and even then every rep was slow and hard. But its only accessory stuff..i got the main, important work done.

Time to rest up.

c2w2
Press: 36x3, 41x3, 47.5kg x5 PB?
Assisted chins: 4x5, 5x3
Fat grip Bench: 40kg 5x10
BB curls: 27.5kg 8,10,8
Wrist roller: 20kg 3 sets

Will have to check my notes to confirm the press PB, at worst its equaling a rep PB at that weight, but im 90% sure my previous best was 4. The chins felt a bit easier than last time. the 5x3 were a mixture of overhand and overhand, the 4x5 being neutral grip.
Did a few high rep sets of fat grip hammer curls aswell. Those, and wrist roller, are to try build up my tiny forearms. A bit of direct work never hurt anyone.
