    Default 4th day to HLM

    I recently ran the SS LP after a huge layoff with my maxes below:

    32yrs old/195lbs
    SQ: 295x3
    BP:215x3
    PR: 160x3
    DL: 305x3
    PC: 185x2

    Ive been running a standard HLM for several weeks, however time/energy is becoming an issue as it is taking me 1.5 hrs to finish a session. I know Andy Baker has always talked about adding a 4th press day to an HLM, but would it be doable to add in both a pull and a press in the 4th day so that my weekly volume is more thoroughly spread-out?

    A setup like this:

    Day1
    Light Press/Heavy Squat/Chins

    Day2
    Bench/Deadlift/dips

    Day3
    Heavy Press/Light Squat/Chins

    Day4
    Power Cleans/CG bench/conditioning


    I could resort to the standard 4 day upper/lower split, but i enjoy working the entire body in a session focusing just on 2 main lifts. Any advice would be much appreciated.
