I am going to modify my workout yet again to a more power training type of workout. I am growing bored of the typical bodybuilder style workout. Anyhow- twice a week- I am going to try more power workouts instead, to actually grow stronger but not to just buff up. Anyhow- for now its gonna look like this-

Power Workouts-

Day one-

High pulls
Overhead Squats
Power push ups
Reverse Power push ups (bodyweight rows done explosively)

Day Two-

Glute Bridges
Behind Neck Push Press
Dips
Pull ups

The start of my more power based workouts. Felt great. Here's what I did-

High Pulls-

135 x 6
155 x 5
185 x 4
155 x 5
155 x 5

Overhead Squats-

85 x 6
85 x 7
85 x 7

Power push ups-

Normal positioning-

BW x 8
BW x 8

Close hand positioning-

BW x 7
BW x 8

Power rows-

Normal Positioning-

I know I won't get immensely buff off of these workouts...but I should be able to generate more power than I ever have in like 3 months with these types of workouts. Hopefully I'll still gain muscle mass as well.
