    I'm curious, how do you select your weights, sets, and reps? I can't make out the progression and/or pattern.

    Hi Mark. Not much of a pattern. While dealing with poor appetite and unintended weight loss, I tried to keep intensity high. And take the good days when I could.

    As best as possible, I tried to stick to 2 days on, 1 off, 3 lifts per day, and always low volume. Some days a heavy single and some days a heavy set or two.

    This should sort itself out in the next week or so and Iíll start training blocks that produce slow steady progression as measured by an estimated powerlifting total.

    Ah. Got it now. Almost (you should forgive the expression) a Weideresque instinctive training protocol.

    Obviously, absent your health challenges, similar in a few ways to my own approach, thanks of a few strong hints from Doug Hepburn. My own is 2-3 lifts a session, low volume (although not quite as low as yours), and some intensity to keep sharp.

    Good luck as you proceed.
