I like overthinking things too. haha. If you were to do just squat/bench/deads, i'd throw in a light assistance day, to break it up, and maybe even do a cube thing with the main lifts .... like

1:ME Squat, 2: DE Bench, 3: RE Dead, 4: Light Assistance, 5: RE Squat, 6:ME Bench, 7: DE Dead, 8: Light Assistance, 9: DE Squat, 10: RE Bench, 11: ME Deads, 12: Light Assistance ... and keep going, rotating what you do for each lift, that would limit your week to two heavy sessions. I'd also really skimp on assistance on the main days.

I watched Marks vid again. Writing stuffs down. I've pretty much made up my mind that I'm gonna give every day training a healthy green light. If you have anything else to add feel free. I appreciate the response, you guys have given me good things to consider.

Just watch how your body responds and adjust if necessary...for example, initially, you may have to take one day out, in order to increase to the 7 days, if the body isn't quite ready for it.

You'll probably be fine though.

Thanks.

This body isn't prepared for getting from the recliner to the bed, much less lifting weights. Oh well.

The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I may try just that down the line. Right now I plan on doing some bber type days to build size and strength, create more leverage in addition to my fatness.

It can be done. You will need to approach it slowly, and allow your connective tissue time to adapt.

I would start with a basic fullbody template, utilizing lighter weights, and working 5 days a week as a starting point. Keep total movements to a fairly low number. You will find some useful info by looking at Oly programing.

I ran 6 days a week for 18 months. It's all about balancing volume and intensity, and takes a lot of tweaking and listening to your body.

I did a lot of working up to daily maxes, and focused on improving them.

For some lifts, variation is a must - deadlifts. I found no value in frequent floor pulling. Squats on the other hand I could do daily if I wanted to.

Right now I still use a variation of this type of programming. It takes a lot of discipline. You can't go in trying to kill yourself each day.
