    Currently hitting it 6 days per week each bodypart twice per week. My own twist on HIT... so far so good. Been growing while keeping bodyfat around 7.0%-7.5%.

    Am I intense enough.... well I was hunched over puking this morning after squats I still had three exercises left after that. I killed every one of them.

        Compete in PL, so training style is based on that. Worked with josh Bryant the past 6 months and workout 3 days a week, along with another 2 days of very light cardio and flexibility.

              Yeah, I am currently at 154 -155 body weight.

              My gym total is 1095, but that is with my gym PR's (all lifts performed on separate days). Also using straps on the deadlift.

                  Sunday & Wednesday: Full-body weight workouts encompassing lessons and principles I learned from HIT, DC, Max-OT, and 5/3/1.

                  Monday & Thursday: LISS Cardio, 60 minutes.

                  Tuesday & Friday: HIIT Cardio running intervals on a treadmill.

                  Saturday: Off

                  Why? It works for me and I enjoy it.

                    Currently: AGVT (Advanced German Volume Training) / 3x-week - "smart volume for me"
                    Will try to take it up to 4x-week training in January.

                    LISS cardio 4x-week for 30mins...

                    Was doing a DC style routine for a while and the body/joints needed a break.

                      Just restarted 5/3/1 after a more volume based approach for contest prep.

                      Looking forward to good strength gains, not looking forward to losing the chiseled look.

                        I'm all about trying to get in tune with my body. Goals are bodybuilding physique oriented; growth, shape, symmetry etc. Currently I am cutting.

                        I used to love high volume, five days a week, standard splits hitting each body part once per week. I found my body doesn't heal up adequately for this.

                        For almost the past year, I've been doing DC training. It took awhile to wrap my head around the less volume, but I followed the plan religiously and went up nicely in size and strength. Both my weak and good body parts grew more in the first couple blasts than they did in the past couple years. Now I definitely love lesser volume and higher frequency. One thing I learned is that the three rest pauses to failure, statics, widowmakers (weak parts) and extreme stretches beat down my CNS more than I liked. I just seem to not heal as well as others.

                        Enter now, I'm doing a regimen like PastorPump's with a 3 way split similar to DC that focuses on my weak muscle groups, and that I think will be a little easier on my CNS.

                        Monday: Chest/Shoulders/Tri's
                        Tuesday: Bi's/Forearms/Back Width/Back Thickness
                        Thursday: Calves/Hams/Quads
                        Friday: Chest/Shoulders/Bi's

                        Major muscle groups 3 exercises each, and minors 2 exercises each. Only exceptions are forearms get 1 exercise and back gets 5 exercises (2 width, 2 thickness + deadlifts). Mon/Tues/Thurs are 2 working sets each, both to positive failure. One set 8-10 reps and one set 12-15 reps. Friday will be pump work only not reaching failure, and using different points of flexion. As with DC, controlled quality reps and progression in weight/reps are still my goals.

                        If the above doesn't work as well as I theorize, I will go back to DC training 100%. When I get back to the offseason and kCals are high, I will likely go to the DC 3 way split to bring up weak areas.

                        Whew, that was long winded. Sorry guys! Lol

                          A variation on DC. It's push/pull/legs off repeat setup like a Dc 3 way split. I do this 6-10 weeks then run a Chest/shoulder back legs arms off repeat split with much much more volume. So far so good

                            Right now I'm following my own program in which I utilize principles taken from DC, MD, Yates-style HIT, MI40, etc.

                            I'm a general believer in warming up and then one all-out set per exercise (although some of these warm-ups may be considered workings sets to others) - whether that's one all-out straight set, a superset, dropset, rest-pause... I incorporate many different techniques. But I use that one all-out set to keep intensity high as well as a way to more effectively gauge progression. I also try to hit each muscle/muscle group from several different angles and from several points throughout the strength curve within a training session to make sure that I activate the maximum amount of muscle fibers. I also incorporate techniques such as intention and extreme stretches.

                            Right now I'm trying to focus on bringing up my chest, delts, & arms so my split is as follows:

                            Monday: Hams/Quads/Calves
                            Tuesday: Rest
                            Wednesday: Chest/Delts/Tris/Abs
                            Thursday: Rest
                            Friday: Back/Bis
                            Saturday: Chest/Delts/Abs
                            Sunday: Rest
                            Monday: Bis/Tris

                            REPEAT

                              Smolov, currently week 6 of 13 (squatting 4 times per week)...I dunno if I am intense enough, but every workout f'ing hurts and my legs are forever sore. However, I hit a PR for 2 i thought I would never hit for 1. I will probably go back to 5/3/1 or maybe look into the Cube or some type of block periodization...
