Not going to write down all the stuff i've missed safe to say i finished 2 full runs of the Full Body template Phase 1, I've just been super busy at work so not much time to update the online log.

Final numbers from 2nd run:
DL - 310 x 6, single for 380
press - 90 x 12, single for 140
bench - 205 x 5, single for 245
squat - 205 x 11, single for 305

Decided to veer from the full body template and head into the 100 rep challenge template due to not being able to compete in December due to Army stuff.

I've been awful at updating this log the last few months.

Recap of 6OCT to 17 NOV - 100 Rep Challenge from this article: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...0rep_challenge
Did most of what was said in the article minus prowler stuff, no prowler = no prowler stuff, substituted other conditioning on those days

Final numbers from 100 rep challenge:
BW on 06OCT, 2012 = 197
BW on 17NOV, 2012 = 190
DL - 295 x 6, 310 x 6, 325 x 4
press - 85 x 9. 90 x 10, 95 x 11
bench - 195 x 7, 210 x 3, 215 x 3
squat - 190 x 10, 200 x 12, 210 x 12

Summary:
This challenge was well challenging, those 100 rep sets were sucked pretty bad, I found the lower body 100 rep days easier than the upper body 100 rep days by far. I used the loads recommended in the article and those were nearly too much on upper body days. I didn't push the main lifts too hard, got my number and left 2 to 4 reps in the tank most main lift days.

Started 5/3/1 Simplest Strength Template on 20 NOV BW @ 190
Using following exercises as main accessory movement:
Close grip bench on OH press days
SLDL on squat days
Incline NG DB bench on bench press days
FS on deadlift days

Other accessories are 3 sets of 10-20 working the muscle not the joints
Hamstrings, lower back and abs on lower body days
Lats, upper back, biceps and triceps on upper body days

Conditioning following the template laid out here: http://www.atlargenutrition.com/blog...and-be-strong/ with the following modifications for this 5/3/1 cycle
Running x 3 days a week instead of 5 for now using the following days:
- light recovery run - light, relatively short distance slow pace run
- speed/interval work
- running form drills - unning technique work which would include exercises such as repeats, strides, pacing practice, quick feet/high knee drills or other accessory work

Walking x 2 to 4 days a week - not really conditioning but more to get outside and move around
