    Ok so I been using a routine for the past 2 months. Its basically a squat/bench, back, squat/bench split. I have been gaining and gaining using it. Come first week of August I am going to max out with all the gear I'd use in a meet.

    One of my professors(kinda like my coach) sent me this routine he wants me to try:
    Day 1 Legs
    squat 2x12 @ 60%
    leg press 2x8-12
    leg curls 2x8-12
    leg ext 2x8-12
    calf raises 2x8-12
    incline sit ups 2x8-12

    Day 2 Chest
    bench
    incline
    shoulder press
    lat raises
    tricep ext

    all same reps as Day 1

    Day 3 Back
    deads
    power cleans
    rows
    sldl
    curls
    abs

    Same reps

    Each week the main lifts drop 2 reps and go up 5%. Lasting for 8 weeks.

    Anyone worked with something close to this? Should I switch now or wait until I max first of August? There is a meet in Sept and Oct that Id like to lift in as well, so I don't know how I should alter it since I'd probably be smack dab in the middle of the routine

    Oh one more thing, the last 2 weeks I'd use my bench shirt and suits for the 3 lifts.

    I've been kind of doing that for the past 2 months and have seen great results. Can I just continue it with periodically taking a week off here and there?


    I showed one of my friends this routine and she said it was similar to what they to at LaTech(dominates college powerlifting) at the beginning of the fall.

    the new routine sounds pretty solid if you don't mind only lifting 3x a week. I personally need four.

    I'm guessing it's worth the buy?

    yeah... he was a big proponent of three day training. I'm sure you could possible dig all of the information up if you spent hours upon hours reading his logs and q&a questions, but he has everything written up with exact training cycles written out. worth the buy IMO... everyone I know that bought it has said it is very very good.
