Time for a Deload, then another month of volume, followed by an intensity block, leading to this years first peak (circa. start of April).

I've looked back through my log, which nicely maps out the last 30 days of training. Calculating the total volume of the main moves only (and any derivatives, i.e. deficits, pause squats, cgbp) shows I did a total of 214,000 lbs of volume. For this next volume cycle, I'll aim to increase the average intensity (last cycle hovered around 65-75% for the most part, this cycle I'll be fluctuating between 75-85% for squat and bench, and 70-80% for deadlift) and increase the overall volume by approx. 6%, to circa. 227k lbs

Overall, that looks something like;

The idea is to start with pretty manageable volume, manipulate it in-week, and build up to a point at the end of the four weeks where I can't sustain that volume any longer. Followed by a Deload, and a four week peak.

I'm considering which assistance to include - To be honest I think the volume is sufficiently high that I don't need much assistance in there, but some hypertrophy on the arms, lats, rear delts and a little cardio/core work wouldn't go amiss.

Well, at least it'll get a whole lot easier to get plenty of rest, after the kid comes.

Lol.

I'm considering letting my training go in another direction for a bit. Train other big lifts, supporting lifts, and minimum of the competition lifts. Build some bigger musculature, lean up a bit and give my joints a break from the big lifts.

Maybe some overhead pressing, incline benching, hack squats, barbell rows, SLDL and lots of machines.

My joints feel very beat up, and despite my denial my recovery simply can't keep up with the volume I like to do on the main lifts at the moment.

I would say that I pause all my reps at the top regardless of whether it's touch and go or paused on the chest - I personally find it helps me stabilise for the next rep, set up properly etc. When I note that the reps are paused however, I mean on the chest, and usually for a count of 1-2 seconds.

BJ, if you don't mind my asking, what's your height and approx weight?

Hiya.... 5 ft 8 I believe. I'm pretty short.

I hover between 95-100kg at the moment, so pretty fat!

Thanks! That's very interesting to me. I've just started to lift. I'm a few inches taller than you, but I'm in the same weight range: been between 205# and 220# in the last 3-4 months. And my 3-lift total is less than your squat number. It's eye-opening to see that lifting totals like the ones you posted, are possible at this weight range. (Eventually.)

Hey... 5 years ago I was failing sets of 5 in the squat with 70kg.... I started in the same place.

Start of a two month hypertrophy cycle. Aim is to build muscle in the right areas, allowing me to run a successful follow on strength cycle, ultimately leading to my goals for 2017 of 240/155/280.

Deficit Deadlift:

180kg x 8
180kg x 8
180kg x 8
180kg x 10 - no deficit

Bench - Feet in Air

95kg x 8
95kg x 8
95kg x 8
95kg x 8

One arm Barbell Row

+40kg x 8 p/a
+40kg x 8 p/a
+40kg x 8 p/a
+40kg x 8 p/a

I picked these up from a recent video by Mike T. Hit my lats much more than dumbbell rows, and more opportunity to add weight.

Glute Thrusts

180kg x 8
180kg x 8
180kg x 8
