Steve's HLM Starr v. Hepburn Fullbody Log
After much discussion on the issue, endless thought, and more then a few reality checks, I've decided on a full body approach.
I've wanted to try a full body approach for over a year, but have had a steep learning curve. One of the issues I have faced is that, even though I don't use many exercises to begin with, it was hard for me to whittle them down further. It takes time to adapt to a full body approach. Man, did I learn that.
I am starting with basics. Goals are size and strength, as always. I WILL stick to this routine while cutting.
(H) Heavy Day
Yates Rows 5x5
CG Bench 3x8
(L) Light Day
Deadlift 5-8 singles
Overhead Press 8x2
Military Press (or cleans) 3x8
(M) Medium Day
Bench 6x3 - 30 pounds less then Heavy Day
Squat - 6x3 - 50 pounds less then Heavy Day
--I am going to "try" cleans. Right now I can't get the back of my hands anywhere near the top of my shoulders. It's not a flexibility issue. It's a big arm issue. I don't know if hang cleans are worth it as a replacement for cleans. I have never really tried them.
--No ab, calf, forearm, trap work.
--Deadlifts. I will progress by one rep each workout. Part of me wants to try 2 to 3 rep sets. We'll see. Single reps don't seem to help my deadlift max.
--Progression. I will progress as fast as I can without going to failure.
