Re: Messing with my program

. I was also thinking about close-grip bench press and still am, so I’m open for suggestions. I would wait until you are more comfortable with your flat benching. Particularly given it is typically a tricep movement... The chin-up reps are only 1 because when going higher, the amount sets will beco...

I"m going to go out on a limb and say that your fat gain had about 1,000x more to do with your caloric intake than it did what routine you were doing.

Re: Program for an old novice

You know what I'm saying? I think Over longer cycles it's silly to get bogged down in specific expectations for Lift C, following Lifts A then B. Correct. To a degree as long as SOMETHING about that lift is getting better you are okay. Whether it be weight, reps, form or whatever. It's more benefic...

Re: Program for an old novice

Erick makes a point to switch order. I have mixed view on this. I think it can mess with your expectations, as you are more/less tired this week when you get to a movement. But, I doubt my rationale is a real blocker. You are thinking short term. Yeah, over the period fo a couple weeks, or months, ...

Re: Program for an old novice

On the second Mon-Fri swap the pressing for the rowing.

Do the rowing second instead of always 3rd.

Or maybe, just switch them for the second "cycle" of 14 days.
