    Honestly brother volume is completely relative to the individual and their genetic response just as intensity, frequency, food selection, gear selection, etc.

    As long as your periodization is properly in lined with your goals and doesn't conflict, your good to go

    Thanks man i was waiting for someone to back me up on that lol. I dont feel like its too much volume.

  4. It really depends on what stage of training you're in. If you're peaking for a contest, then yeah, thats too much volume on the non-comp lifts. But, if you're just base building and getting bigger and stronger then do however much volume as your individual recovery allows.

    Yep. Individual. My genetics allow me to grow at a very high volume so I'm in the similar boat

    Yes! Relative to the individual. One person's acclimation phase COULD be another person's overreaching phase…depends

    Yep when the wife is waiting there for you it is pretty much time to go. I got to the point I told my wife if she thought she were going to finish before me she needed to take a separate car. I was tired of getting the look when she was done before me.

  8. My wife is always done before me. Now I just tell her when I'm going to have a >hour session and she'll do cardio at home.

  9. Well she had gone to a chiropractor appt and i wasted time when she dropped me off waiting for a buddy of mine to lift with. I ended up just lifting by myself but i wasted too much time and she was waiting for me by the time i finished squats.

  10. Shes pregnant and this pregnancy has been really hard on her so she hasnt been able to work out for a while so i usually just go alone.

  11. It sucks when you are used to working out with your wife and something happens that breaks that up. It really is such great quality time once you figure it all out.

    Yeah, just keep some metcons and WOD in there for general conditioning here and there and you should be solid. I try to do a mix of jumps, bodyweight work, and a lot of barbell work for the big 3. I just recently started getting my general athleticism back and don't want to lose it in the quest for strength. Hard to keep focus on all those aspects at once but it works.

    Yes, it is one of those things that is fleeting if you do not keep it up. There is simply something to be said about being ready for just about anything and physically capable of performing well throughout a myriad of activities. When that conditioning drops and the body weight stuff starts slipping I really miss being able to do it.

    Look up Prilepin's chart. That's research based on thousands of successful lifters. Much more accurate than what you feel like. You're trying to build a house in one training session, where in reality the house is built over a period of years with one training session being one brick.

    You don't wanna blow it out one week, have a zhitty week, then deload because you feel bad. That's one good week out of three. You're looking for about 40 good weeks in a year.

    I stopped doing direct ab work over a year and a half ago. Recently I picked it back up, and like you, it sucked. lol

    However, the core bracing on squats and ohp have been so much stronger. I'm hoping the added core strength gives me a little more boost on my numbers.
