update: 6/8/09 Been doing 3-4 days a week of upper/lower split with a ME/Repitition templates for the last year. WS4SB worked well and 5/3/1 boosted all my lifts for a couple months. My lifts have been about the same for the last 3-4 months and I'm kind of beat on trying to go heavy and not seeing any improvement in my lifts. As a result I'm going back to Pur's routine and this time I'm going to do it the way Pur outlined with very little variation. Also I'm checking my ego at the door and focusing on the quality of each rep rather than just moving weight. Until this point I've just tried to move more weight than i probably should have, and obviously my lifts all suck so this fundamental change in my training ideology is probably going to reap some serious benefits. My goal in the gym is to get a good pump and really feel like I'm really working the muscles I intend to for each day-- specific numbers are irrelevant for the most part, I'll do what I can handle for clean solid reps. It's only been a week on this training but I'm really enjoying it and am looking forward to watching my body grow.
