monday

wednesday

friday
bench, military press, bb curl, front squat, pull up, laterals, calves and abs

Looks like tough work but I commend the FB approach. I think my main concern with that programme would be the short rest period between doing 2 types of deads AND the leg press and then those squats and lunges in the following session whether your legs would be recovered sufficiently, and the lower back for that matter.

i think my legs will be fine for that, my deadlifting style because of my heigth and structure makes me use mostly back on deads, i can deadlift all day and not fatigue my legs. i'll definitley give it some thought, though. i did the program last night, and i have some back and hammie soreness, so i guess ill just see what happens.

I agree, I commend this approach. Very underrated regime. However, with all due respect, I think we need to reorganize this. The biggest concern it seems is you aren't taking into consideration secondary support and local stabilizers.

On your "back of body" day, you're neglecting your traps, which can be hit directly or indirectly. They are synergists to your basic multi-joint movements. Add a form of rows, or any other shrugging movement.

This isn't the best way to develop a FB routine. As I look over it, CNS drain could be extremely apparent, especially with a 3 set volume equivalent to almost 6-8 sets/body part.

Would you mind re-organizing? Or is your mind set on this? The basic idea is good, I just feel with any recovery ability, this would be taxing on your CNS.
