Been gaining some weight...gonna pretend like it's muscle cause I still have visible abs but the holidays are killing my diet. Weighing in around 138.4 today (had a big breakfast and some simple carbs before training in the form of Gatorade mixed with my PWO). Hit 315# on my high bar squat with a belt. Solid.
On top of that I'm at 405# for my dead though I haven't tested it again in awhile cause my lower back is fried. Prob gonna drop deads to once every two weeks again. Front squats are at 225# for an easy double. Could've gone heavier but I was on my 12th set and running outta time.
All in all feeling strong. Started a new custom split based on C&P's template after deads started killing me with the DtO program. Basically...
Mon: Heavy Squat + Heavy Overhead Press
Tue: Heavy Pull + Heavy Bench Press
Wen: Light Day (train dem Gunz)
Thur: Heavy Squat + Heavy Overhead Press
Fri: Heavy Pull + Heavy Bench Press
Sat: Light Day (push/pull/lower)
Sun: Active Rest
Trying to keep this as flexible as possible. I don't even write down what I'm doing until that day. I throw in calves and abs with my Heavy Squat+OHP sessions and neck and forearms with Heavy Pull+Bench. So I'm basically doing four moves per day. Keepin it somewhat quick. Usually around an hour with warmup. Gonna experiment too with double sessions. So when I get home from work today I'm gonna bust out 100 pull-ups or 200-300 dips or a barbell complex like the Bear for a 5x5. That's my cardio, haha. Shouldn't be more than 20 min. Obviously for my Heavy days the main moves are for set/rep schemes of 7x4, 10x3, 12x2, 15x1 with 30-90 seconds of rest.
