    I'm doing full body every other day right now. One leg, push, and pull movement every workout in 8x8 fashion. I'll rotate through one smaller muscle group after the leg, push and pull movements every workout.

    First time trying the modified 8x8 program and my conditioning is coming along nicely.

    I knocked my working sets on the large muscle groups down to 3 each session with rep ranges of 8-12, with the smaller muscle groups I usually working in the 4-5 set range and aiming for 12-15 reps (sometimes 20).

    I am enjoying the higher rep ranges with moderate weights; getting results with minimal joint pain. I also superset 2-3 movements and run the entire workout as circuit training style so I am getting some cardio in without dedicating another half hour post workout. Iíll probably maintain this regimen through the summer then go to a 3 day push pull leg routine with heavier loads and less reps in the fall winter season.


    I donít do deadlifts anymore, sometimes I use rack pull method and I stopped using the trap bar for shrugs (use straight bar now) because there is too much sway and I think it was the cause of my shoulder bursitis recently which put my workouts on hold for a couple weeks and pissed me off greatly.

    so the trap bar is pretty much useless to me now, my wife used to use it for deadlifts but the handles were too far for her to perform the movement safely too so... yeah the trap bar is pretty much useless to us now. Lol
    Like this push pull mixing back with triceps and chest with biceps. Got to start doing legs twice a week too.

    Usually do three days on one day off, depending on how I'm feeling. Full body workout 2 hour duration.
    Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

    I try to work every muscle twice, depends on work. I usually always work two muscles and take days off when i feel i need one if i feel good i workout, if im tired or get to 5 in a row i take a day off.

    I usually try to go 5 days a week and hit everything , was hitting 2-3 (chest,bi,tried) exercises 2 a week ..been going 2x a day now tho and hitting everything 2x a week,in all honesty I believe to maintain strength as long as everything is hit once a week you should be doing alright though

    Add weight or reps each workout. When I stall 2 weeks in a row change the exercise. Stay with each exercise until I stall.
    The routine never changes.
