    I would do lower body 3x a week... Say, Monday would be 3x5-8 heavy squats, followed by 2-4 lower body exercises with a higher rep range. Yep, just about killed me, but I did grow some considerable mass.

    http://crossfitatlanta.typepad.com/C...kill_Stand.pdf FUN!!!! New goals. I've been going back and forth with programming (after being on Wendler for over a year,) and I get too caught up in the little details of things. I think I will go back to basics and just go by "feel"... I made some pretty good gains through intuition as well.

    Today:
    Sprinting like a wild woman through the streets of Maine! Including lots of hills, leaping on and off rocks, lots of pivoting.
    +
    20#x8x3 single-arm DB clean and press
    25#x15x3 single-arm DB snatch
    2x20 V-ups
    3x12 knees to elbows, seated
    3x30s "glute" plank (tuck the tailbone)
    2x50 donkey kicks, + 10sec isohold (insanity)
    1x100 bridges, including single-leg and 30sec isohold (even more insanity)

    Insanity can be fun in moderation, no? ;-)

    Squat, Bench, Weighted Pull Ups, Shoulder Press, Rows.......all one set to failure. Been two weeks since my last session so of course I was stronger and increased the weights for most of these. Trying to keep TUL between 60-90 seconds and did quite well. Didn't add weight to the Pull ups but did eak out an extra 20 seconds TUL (thats one full rep). I'm good for at least a week .

    Walked the dog for 3 miles right after. Still havent eaten (17 or so hours)....probably will just extend it to dinner.

    Betorq, I've read that doing chin-ups to failure is not reccomended but doing them as much as possible through the week is a pretty good way to gain reps. No? I actually got up to 13 chin-ups at one point in my life, which is when I was focusing on them A LOT and did them almost everyday in various forms.. slow, fast, high reps, low reps, ladders. It's unfortunate that it's hard to be super awesome in ALL areas of fitness... For instance, now my chin-ups suck but my back squat has really skyrocketed. Give and take, I guess. ;-)

    I still don't know how you guys think fasting feels good. It screws me all up. I'm wondering if it's because I'm a female. Even when I was at my best and feeling awesome, I might fast for 16-18hrs but not everyday, and even that would be a little obnoxious. I love eating as soon as I wake up!



    Very sore from those new exercises yesterday, and not super motivated to do anything. Went for a ~45min bikeride for about 7-8ish miles. Perhaps going for a 1-2hr walk with a friend later. Salmon for lunch in a light maple syrup glaze, can't get any better! ;-)

    I'm not Betorq, but since I do chins till failure I thought I might give this a crack. I only do ONE workout a week were all my lifts are to complete failure and find it is the best way to stimulate the muscles to gain strength. The rest of my work (if i do any) is not till failure and would usually consist of higher reps and body weight work.

    The only problem with going to failure with pullups....or anything for that matter is break in form. You have to slow the rep down and be sure to keep the stress on the muscles involved and resist the urge to squirm or kip to get just one more rep. If you get a half rep...cant move further....but squeeze as hard as you can for 5-10 extra seconds to try.....that is failure and the set is done. No leg swinging or squirming.
