I think you are already basically managing your recovery in the same way already, you mentioned " but im happy at this pace this cycle is going for now. Ill prolly do it for maybe 8-12 weeks then do something more challenging" just instead of cycling up/down the intensity over a week period you are doing in longer cycles, I think it's the same basic principles at work thou. I vaguely remember it now being called a overreach/deload training cycle by someone on YouTube.

I do push/pull and break muscle groups down. In and out of the gym in about 30min a day.
Day 1:Chest, day2:shoulders & triceps, day 3:back & biceps, day4:legs.
By breaking muscle groups down like this I'm not going to overwork and burn muscle. It enables me to have a life because I'm in and out in 30min or less.
Sometimes I'll do 2 days of workout in one if I'm feeling it. I've been doing this for about 2yrs now and love it! I make great gains. During deer season last year I quit lifting in order to get deer out quicker. I didn't take care of myself. Loss weight down to like 169. This workout I do enabled me to climb back to 188-193lbs this summer. Breaking muscle groups down like this I can really hammer the Paticular muscle group I'm on. Gives ample rest between workouts so that muscles are fully healed and ready to be hammered again. If I miss a day I just pick back up where I left off.
Theres days I don't feel like going. Those days I tell myself I'm only going to be there a short time. If I'm not feeling it.... On chest day for example I'd go in and at the least do bench because it's the major exercise. Just make sure you do the main exercises. Chest day/bench, shoulder day/military press, Ect... You get the picture.
Best way to workout hands down if you just trying to be in shape, look & feel good. I've been lifting since 22yrs old and have lifted every program there is out there. Now if your competing this may not be for you.
I'm at 12% body fat year around. I have one of the best body's in our gym. Planet Fitness...
I usually do lower weights with high reps doing a lot of super setting.
I just recently went to lifting heavy on the big 3 Squats, bench, military press, & DEADLIFTS. Everything else I do the high reps, lower weights.
I'd like to lift heavier accross the board but everytime I do I end up with injuries. Guess it's my age.

So i followed everyones input and I appreciate the help. For the moment ill do this EOD. So ill alternate the routines every other week.
So EOD weeks that have 3 days ill do this.
Then the following week that has 4 w/o days ill do this.
(The second box ill just use as an option)
But im still open for change.

I really like the way I'm doing it. I'm still making good gains on 250mg/1cc a week of Enthanate. It's not my desire to be huge anyways. My goal is something like 210lbs. Goal used to be 192 which im at now. Funny thing is each time I reach a goal I want to be a little bigger. So I'm guessing it's always going to be like this... Just a little bigger.

Sometimes I kill it... Other times I don't. I usually always do burnouts my last set.
At 57 I just don't have the stamina to really do much more. If I were to do more muscle groups they wouldn't be quality lifts. This way the muscle groups in working can be hammered without killing me.

I was doing 3 X full body a week, roughly 40-45 sets in total
It's grueling, but I felt I wasn't as sore during the week. I managed good pumps on everything too, but you need to be seriously motivated to tackle them at 100%

If your sore that's a good thing it means you've torn muscle tissue. The whole idea!
The novice will get sore. This of us who have lifted for years it's a rarity to get sore. I lifted extra heavy on squats last week and I've not been that sore in 20yrs.Major pain! It was muscle soreness exactly what we want.
BUT... Guess what, last night I woke up numerous time with my knee cap burning which is not muscle, it's a joint or something similar. Now what? I squat tommorow... Who knows

Fortitude train8ng by Dr. Scott Stevenson is the best "full body" routine that I've used. Randall J. Strossens's super squats is a good program as well.

Subbed for info. Want to know if anyone does a super simple compound, low rep, higher frequency program.
Very limited time and my CNS fries fast from long workouts. So thinking of highly effective quick workouts for max stimulation.
Warm up, dynamic stretching, then:
1moderate warm up set to 8 reps then
2x8 of bench
2x8 of front squats
2x8 of dead lift
20 min of LISS cardio cool down.
2-3 times per week.
For maintaining muscle and losing fat in deficit. Thoughts?

Personally I would least do all the major compound movements, and like you said - warm up set then 2 x 8. Or alternate major compound movements like 5 x 5
2x8 dead lift
2x8 barbell row
2x8 overhead press
Work out A
2x8 overhead press
Work out B
2x8 bench press
2x8 barbell row
Alternate workout A and B
I too would love to hear more thoughts...
