    Not that this will work for everybody, but it's an example of how you can tweek TM into something that suits you. My programming went through a few incarnations and I didn't make a lot of progress earlier in the year. This came about in the fall and basically was most of my progress for the year.
    thanks for sharing this Clay. It is basically bi-weekly progress, right? I had wondered how that could work as a intermediary step to monthly programming or as a kind of older guys intermediate program. Seems like it is working well!

    I am going to try triples on volume day this week.

    Default Intensity Day

    Schedule and illness screwing with me so I decided to do the whole week today. Donít go nuts, I says to myself - and thatís when I went nuts.

    Press: PBR 205x1, PBR 207.5x1, b/o165x8 (8RM PBR?)

    Squat: 445x1 (What? That felt really easy? Thatís because it was 425.)
    PBR 445x1, b/o 365x1 (Nope. I knew I was done after the single.)

    db Bench: 90ís x5,8,8,8

    Deadlift: 425x1, PBR 445x1

    Music: Misc. Hall of the Mountain King by Savatage is a great tune. (Not to be confused with the similarly named bit from Peer Gynt Suite by Grieg - which is also great. Hereís a pretty cool cover: http://youtu.be/O_cWfRVHAkQ.)

    PBR Video soon

    PL Total: 1150

    Nice work, Clay. Getting into the 400s is a BFD.

    The Santa Rampage ended at a Polka bar. I must have still been fired up from that.

    Had some time this morning since I found out last night I’m starting work at 2:30pm. My clients have no regard for life outside the two days of work I’m doing for them.

    Power Clean: 165x1 (bah!), 165x3, 165x3, 165x3, 165x3, 165x3

    Barbell Rows: 205 - 3x5+ (if I don’t run out of time)

    Default Volume

    starting strength coach development program
    Press: 167.5 - 5x5

    Squat: 375 - 5x3

    ~10% reset on both lifts. They both felt good.

    Music: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Canít get enough right now.
