Let me know if you want to merge logs Fazc. I am up for it.

Quads (and hamstrings) received excellent stimulation from sumos yesterday. Very good session.

Bulgarian-style Training for Strength & Powerlifting ? AmpedTraining

http://www.ampedtraining.com/2010/ob...ength-training

Edit; My own expeirences...

I'm currently doing a bastardized version of the texas method - that is to say the work of the TM is covered but I'm working up to a heavy single (training max) before TM work. On non-TM days (tuesday, thursday, and every other saturday) I'm also lifting... most always workin up to a mid-intensity/mid-volume snatch or clean and power jerk, or both, in addition to low volume squats (ususally a heavy single and a few quick triples and doubles around 70% 1RM; I don't go by that % but its usually where the numbers fall). Upper body work is usually DB work, medium to low volume, low to medium intensity -- these are the lifts that I don't normally do in my 'scheduled' training, such as incline presses, floor presses, etc.

The lower body seems to handle volume, intensity, and frequency very well without huge drops in weight lifted as long as there is a foundation built up. Or in other words, the drop necessary at the start isn't huge and quickly regained. The upper body stuff however doesn't handle it to well. You should be able to handle any specific upper lift 3x a week as long as the weekly volume isn't to high and the volume of the high intensity stuff is kept relatively low. Emphasis on weekly. More than that and you usually won't be able to recovery enough and you'll be feeling it (~70% of your 1RM feels like your 1rm plus some aches and pains). Mixing up the lifts usually helps keep this stuff in check if the original plan is off track; different lifts, grips, intensities, etc.

Others thoughts on high frequency... A foundation has to be establish. Two ways to do this: 1) Starting lifting every planned day (4,5 or 6 days a week) but keeping both intensity and volume pretty low. Slowly build up intensity on 2 of those days, then 3, 4, and eventually on all 6 days. Once the targeted intensity is matched on all intended lifting days, begin building up in volume... 2 days, then 3, 4, etc. Option 2) begin lifting 3 days a week and build up intensity then volume OR volume then intensity on all three days. Once you get pretty high on those, begin adding in additional days with low volume, low intensity work and slowly build up on those. I personally have used option 2. Starting to high I've seen it negitively effect 1-2 of my TM based sessions, but being conservative and keeping the work I do fast (lifts can be made without much concontration, no grinding reps, etc.) I've been able to increase intensity and volume on my off days without issue. In fact, if I skip one of my additional lifting days, the following training session actually feels off and I often perform sub-par.

Thanks Fazc... and I'll start posting all of my work as I've really just been posting the TM-days on the forum.

On a side, I can't say my method is the most efficient, but my numbers are going up, I've yet to fail on an attempt, and most importantly, I'm enjoying the frequency of training. The additional work also allows me some more room for feeding

Well efficient or not, you are trying to evolve/tinker and that's always where the best learning comes into play.
