Default 20 Years to find 20 Reps...Worth the trip? (jdmalm123's Bulldozer training log)

So, this is the background/prologue....

Jon M.

35 years old. 6'. 177 lbs. 10% BF. Started lifting at 16, 5'10", 120 lbs. 4% BF.

My notable lifts:

Deadlift: 405x1, 390x3 (My favorite lift)
Squat: 355x1, 315x5
Bench: 250x1, 235x3
Row: 225x5, 135x50
Press: 155x3, 135x5
One-arm Press: 75x4, 65x8
Pull ups: BW+135x3, BW+90x8, BWx22-24
Push ups: 1000+ in one day, 96 in one minute
BB Curl: 135x2, 95x12

Now lifting for 20 years. Personal Trainer for 4 years. Very consistent but lacking purpose for much of that time. Like many others, I've had to unlearn some things. I will train through most injuries. Most significant injury was lumbar disc herniation with surgery in 2000. Trained in gyms most of the time. Training in my home gym now. Spent the middle 13 years training solo. Have had a good training partner for over a year now.

I've been flip-flopping between strength and conditioning programs for the last 2 years. I had developed a scorn for bodybuilding but now i realize it's just an option and a tool for a specific goal. The thing is, deep down, I still want to be huge, but never wanted to give up my hard-earned strength or athleticism. Fortunately, BTB created, and I stumbled upon, BULLDOZER training.

I'm psyched because it seems the perfect system for improving strength, gaining size and not being so cumbersome a program that it's unsustainable. According to BTB, it's also not difficult to recover from neurologically (CNS) or orthopedically (joints). That's good once you cross the 30 year old line! Although, I fully believe my best and fittest years are ahead of me.

I've had a lot of cool experiences and like to help/share when I can. I also like to learn and appreciate feedback and constructive criticism.
Looking forward to running my version of the program and logging it here...

Default My Bulldozer template

So, here's my version of BULLDOZER training.

Keep in mind, this is designed by me for me (with a spot check by BTB), and I'm trying to get big and strong as simply as possible. I'm also taking into account my history, experience and so on. My main pieces of equipment are a power rack, Powertec WB-LS and DBs up to 65#. I have a ton of other miscellaneous gizmos.

The weekly body part schedule I also borrowed from BTB. If you have questions about exercise choices I made, etc., feel free to ask in here or PM me if you'd prefer. The weights below are representative but close to where I'll start.

BULLDOZER!

Warm up for all sessions = Jumping Jacks, BW Pull ups and Lunges.

Hmmm. My curiosity is piqued. Very interesting (and doable) template. I can't wait to see where it takes you.

Thanks.

Good news. I explained BULLDOZER to my lifting buddies and they are in, too!

I think we'll try to figure out our 10RMs for the main moves next week and then start the full program in Feb.
