Sticking with Poliquin's rule about changing programming every 25 days, I will start something new on Monday. I have decided on a fat loss phase. 2 heavy days a week, 2 lactic acid focused workouts (basically circuit style like Poliquins German body comp). 1 heavy day will be chest, back and push press, the other is lower body. I will try this for 3 or 4 weeks and see how it works. I have been doing stuff for mass gain since December so I figured it was time to switch it up a bit. After this fat loss phase I will do another mass phase, but I've made some mistakes that I need to learn from:
1. I was not doing enough volume with this frequency for all my body parts. The goal next time is 16 sets per session.
2. I need to stop randomly introducing special techniques, like I did with the density training today and the circuits earlier this week. This is way too inconsistent and stupid. For lower body, this was a waste of a training cycle because I kept coming up with different things to do.
3. I need to stop focusing on rep numbers and more on total TUT.
4. I need more squat volume. It just sucks not having all the bars and chains like I used to.
