Default Paging Dr. Shafley

I've read most of your posts on ladders here and on IGX. I'm interested in giving them a go, but wanted your advice on programming them.

Background info: Age 39, weight 190-195, goals to hit 200/300/400/500 in press, bench, squat, and DL. My current PRs are 185 press, 260 bench, 360 squat, 450 DL. I have 3-4 days a week to train. Sleep can vary due to family and work, but I have plenty of calories available to eat.

I'd love to hear your advice on programming ladders for all 4 lifts across the course of a week. I think I understand the ladders themselves, progressions, RPE ranges, etc., but am interested in how to set this up on a MWF or MWThSat basis. I would prefer squatting and benching twice a week and DL/press once or twice a week. If you want to take this off board, feel free to PM me. Otherwise, I'm sure there are others who would like to see a what a weekly template looks like.

Thanks in advance for your help!
