I just ran back several pages looking for a link for your current program. Is the program online somewhere? I am interested in the set/rep/rest schema.

I agree a little BB'ing ain't gonna hurt. I was trying to be I saw an interview with Wendler where he was saying that he loved telling lifters that they needed to train like BB'ers and they would go ballistic. His point was to training for symmetry made sense from a longevity standpoint.

I read it and all I can say is wow I would totally screw that up in the gym. It looks really cool, just hard to keep on track with the timing and parameters. I really liked the BS, RDL, FS for the legs though.

Are you liking it?

I read that too...if you look outside of the box you see its pretty spot on.

Impressions of the program after week 2:
Easy to get confused! The sets/reps/rest stuff changes so much that I confused myself a couple of times. It's quite a while since I've training anything even simliar to this style (drop sets..etc), it's been pretty painful especially since I was super in consistent for the few months prior to starting this. I would recommend it if you are looking for a little vanity followed up with wanting a break from 5/3/1. 5/3/1 is great and flexible but even with all the options you can add in there it can get stale. However I can't wait to get back to the 5/3/1 stuff after I finish 3 more cycles of this. I'll be posting future training thoughts here soon.

IF = 16 hours

20 minute NEPA walk

Unplaned rest day, went home and laid down for a bit and next thing I knew it was dinner time. Oops!

I'm debating about continuing the program or letting my training ADD take over and head back over to 5/3/1....what's everyone's vote?

5/3/1! Just cause I like the flexibility so much. You could add in some of the elements of that program for the accessory work.
