    What about this? ? I really love free weight movements but also bodyweight and weighted bodyweight moves. I think bodyweights needs to be incorporated but its too much to include in one workout. So I am thinking of alternating the equipment while keeping the moveemnts the same.

    For example the first time I do upper day I will do a Barbell Workout, followed by bodyweight, etc, Dumbell, Bodyweight, barbell, etc. Im thinking this would give me a nice balance of bodyweight and free weights. example below

    Horizontal Push = Barbell Bench
    Horizontal Pull = Barbell Rows
    Vertical Push = Standing Barbell Press
    Vertical Pull = Lat Pulldown (No barbell available)
    Elbow Ext = Barbell Curls
    Elbow Flex = Skull Crushers

    Horizontal Push = Weighted Pushups
    Horizontal Pull = Weighted horizontal Chinups
    Vertical Push = Weighted Handstand Pushups
    Vertical Pull = Weighted Pullups
    Elbow Ext = Close grip weighted chinups
    Elbow Flex = Weighted Dips.

    Anyone Else do this? IF so thoughts?

    I fit it right into my program. If I am doing heavy bench presses then I'll do supine rows (AKA: inverted rows, horizontal pull ups) with a weight vest. Like wise, if I do heavy rows I'll do band or chain resisted push ups.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    The guy has some great knowledge. I have been doing an upper/lower and I am trying to tweak it. Red's post will help big time.

    I've only been doing it for a couple months, and still tweaking it, but I have already got some minor strength increases. As far as muscle growth, too soon to tell. I just really like how I can push each group with heavier weight each week. The volume over all seems to be the same as a typical split, just less isolation work.

    I'll post up after I've done it for longer

    Edit: my fiancé has commented on physical attributes though.
