    You should see his new DVD. It's pretty good. Shoot, I need to do a review thread.

    It's sort of like Defranco's. Sort of. It's usually EITHER squat OR deadlift on each squat/deadlift day.

    Sometimes it's squatting twice per week. Sometimes it's deadlifting twice per week. Sometimes it's squatting once per week and deadlifting once per week. Sometimes it's box squatting on one day and A2G on another. Sometimes it's box squatting followed by DB Stiff-Leg Deadlifts, etc. It varies. :)

    Hey GH I know you already said you tried Full Body Routines and they were taxing on you but what about Rippetoes Starting Strength? It's low reps, high intensity. I am currently doing this program and I love it. I tried Chad Waterbury's stuff and wasn't to happy after a while. I find this one fun and easy to stick to.

    Here's a slight variation of the program if you haven't already seen it. I've followed this thread pretty closely and lot's of people are pleased with it and making great gains. It's a little bit of a read but well worth it I think.

    yeah seems like I just needed a kick in the ass. so much of it is mental. I swore 145 was damn heavy a week ago.

    I have to admit, when I was lining up to do 180, I was thinking "lightweight, lightweight" in my head. :o :lol:
