    Perhaps every fourth day? For example, you did your trap bar deadlift today (Jan 4). Squat on Monday (Jan 8), then rack pull on Friday (Jan 12), which would be 8 days since your last heavy pull. If that isn't sufficient recovery, stretch it out to every fifth/sixth/seventh day (these would be more likely time frames, I think). Of course, there's plenty of time in there to get your presses and light squats in there, either in-between or on the same days. Just spit-ballin' here.

    Every forth day is how I rotated lifts for a couple years and that works well but it requires a non fixed day week which I have gotten away from. For now I am going to continue the trap bar like an NLP until I can't adding SQ and then RP as I can. At least that's my thoughts for now...

    I haven't run one yet. I realized a couple of months late that I should have done that last summer when my Intensity SQ started beating me up and my DL started failing. I was running a 4-day split each week. I really should have gone to running that same program, but spread over 8 days (M/W/F/M). Even with this 4-day Heavy/Light split that I'm running now, I lose track of what day/phase I'm in. I can only imagine that's tougher once things start floating more.

    I do think that you would respond great to M/W/F/M. It would definitely help with recovery.

    Yep, I'll give that a go later this year once things settle down and I can focus on that training again.

    This 4-day Heavy/Light split does great for that, but gains are much slower than the programming change that I did last summer. I'm still just regaining the ground I lost by beating myself into the ground (plus inconsistency due to travel and other distractions).
