    I'm Trying to figure out if I should start a new program. Just bench press, squat and dead lifts every other day. More volume than usual. Maybe like 4-5 sets for each exercise.

    the compound movements really do get 90% of what you want. the accessory lifts are just that: accessories.

    Yeah, I'm having a feeling that's what I'm going to go with. Maybe have 1 accessory day a week, but I'm cutting so I know I'm not necessarily going to be growing anyways.

    How many hours of sleep did you have? I have to admit, sometimes I get overcaffeinated with a product where instead of getting hyper I get tired but never the case with Level II or Volatile for that matter.

    In the ballpark of 3-5 hours, which is how much I usually get every night. Maybe it was just a fluke, who knows.

    Alright guys, I'm thinking bench press 5x5, dead lift 5x5, squat 5x5. Should I add overhead press or bent over row 5x5 as well? Every other day doing this as well.

    You know what Swanks...at my old raggedy age I am not in it for strength but rather how I look at the end of the day. Focussing on a potential show in 2014...not sure if I want board shorts or speedos.....

    I plan on throwing up at least 210 for 5 reps on bench. It wouldn't be a PR, but we will see what happens. I will be doing deads instead of squats today.

    I always say, "I am not in it for strength", but I always try to push bigger numbers. I have an ego to please

    But seriously, its nice to get stronger but I care s much more about my look and muscle shape and density.
