I'm not sure how my programming is, as my coach does his own thing. I've tried to find a pattern and it seems he's really doing it by feel. But under him I've made as much progress in the past couple months than I did in the nine months prior to that.

As for focus, I actually moved to my current location solely to train with this coach, so weightlifting is pretty much my life right now.
