Is there anything about this doctor that you really like? Like the posters on the exam room walls, or his cologne, or the music they play on the PA system?

"Why didn't you eat him?" - jml

Too bony and stringy.

Today was the first time I've ever done Barbell Power Snatches with more than an empty barbell. I used a clean grip.

I tried something a little different for my Workout D today ... Sled Leg Presses, Barbell High Pulls and Barbell Holds. I think I can benefit from another quad dominant exercise and Leg Presses fit nicely.

Of course I won't be replacing squats. I do them in Workout A with Straight-leg or Standard Deadlifts.

Three days a week ... Usually Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday.

Week 1 - AxBxCxx
Week 2 - DxAxBxx
Week 3 - CxDxAxx
Week 4 - BxCxDxx
Repeat

It's a four week cycle. Each lift gets trained 3 times every 4 weeks, with the exeption of Pull-ups which are trained 6 times every 4 weeks. Meanwhile, the first workout of the week is my heavy day.

I had to use one of the open-back racks for squats yesterday instead of the cage, since they had a guy painting a mural blocking the squat cage ... very irritating.

WAY too hot in the gym on Thursday. I ended up cutting my workout short.

Set a new 3RM on bench presses today. Gym was still hot, but not as bad as Thursday, plus I don't get overheated as easily on upper-body days.

PS) On heavy days I can substitute Standard Deadlifts for Straight-leg Deadlifts and skip Barbell Holds.

Do you do more weight with barbell rows than you back squat? Am I missing something? I'm not trying to be negative. I'm just saying those are some serious rows!

For higher reps, yes. It's always been a strong lift for me.

PS) I do them at a roughly 45-degree angle with a shoulder-width overhand grip (the same grip I use for Military Presses).
