Interesting ideas there roustabout. Now, if it was me, I'd switch that heavy pull and squat. Squatting heavy is easier to recover from than pulling heavy, so why start out the week with a lift that will knacker you from the get go?

Also, I would pick a day to go heavy OH and then a way lighter OH workout. I'd do the lighter one before the heavy bench, then the heavier one later.

Something like:
M - Squat (H) Bench (M), Pull (M)
T - BW stuff, OH (L), Row (M)
W - Bench (H), Squat (M), Pull (L)
Th - BW, OH (H), row (H)
F - Pull (H), Squat (L), Bench (L)

Then two days to recover from the heavy pull.

Just my .02

Oh and nice lifting there, you chinups are sick. And I mean that in a good way.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96

What's boring you the most MAB...the program split structure, or the actual workouts...too many sets you lose interest, sets/workouts aren't engaging enough?

I really like the idea Mike, but I'm doing heavy deads first thing right now and it seems to be fine. Only reason I put it first in the week is because it is the most important lift to me and I like to use my full energy for it. I really like the rest of it though might just switch Fri and Mon though.

Lifting clears my mind and always makes me feel better, plus I always study inbetween sets! But if lifting that much starts to interfere I will do something else.

Oh no nothing like that, I'm not bored yet I just know I will be. I plan on running this till mid Aug when school starts back up. I just think many shorter sessions will be better then 3-4 long ones.

I've also thought about just doing an easy 4 day upper lower like always but just reducing the assistance work to mostly just heavy compounds.

Note: Forgot to add on Friday I did 100 jumpropes inbetween every set including warmups throughout the entire session.

5/19/12

Log Clean and Press
200x5 really hard
205x3
205x5 really easy

Military Press
185x3
185x3
185x2

Sidebends
120x6
120x6

Pushups
BWx30

Notes: Only easy set today was last set of log press, I don't know why but my legs and arms just worked together perfect for the first time in a long time on this one set.

Going to add military press back in to help with pure pressing power, I think I have been using to much leg drive and not doing enough shoulder work.

Interesting how you experienced 'reverse set difficulty syndrome'. I guess you weren't properly warmed up for the first set. I mean, you clearly warmed up and everything but I guess your body didn't comply for that first set. Great pressing anyways
Every set is different which is why I try not to get bummed out if one set is rough as the next one may not necessarily be.

Thats the beauty of Push presses, its a damn good feeling when timing is spot on and a heavy weight just flows up! Good stuff as always mab, and interesting program ideas tossed around!
