    You may just need to allow some more time for adaptation before moving to full-blown auto regulation.

    Something to consider.

    I appreciate your perspective, [mention]Jester [/mention]- when I use the phrase “auto regulation” I’m just meaning “flexible.” I’m fully aware that a 7-day per week, twice per day activity level almost assuredly reduces my chance of success in a periodized layout (as I found). So, I’m going to approach all things strength with an RPE goal to avoid complete CNS pukage and to be able to respect whatever energy level I have when I’m putting a bar on my shoulders.

    Make sense?

    OHP: 115, 130 x 3; 140 x 2, x; 120 x 6

    No Rest Lateral Raise: 30 x 10, 9, 8

    Incline Front Raise: 30 x 10, 8

    I got to the gym too late to do a squat session, so I flipped OHP to today.

    Last night: 3 mile walk (very late). We celebrated my stepson’s birthday with 3 go-cart races. That pushed the timing of the walk a bit.

    [mention]Jester [/mention] I owe you an apology. I was talking out my southern stink hole. I clearly understand now that my body hasn’t yet gotten enough work to properly process adaptive stress in an AR model. As a result, I started a base phase today.

    Incline Bench: 5 x 10 @ 135; 95 + band resistance: 20

    Band Resisted Dumbbell (Flat) Bench: 2 x 8 @ 130 + medium band

    SA Kettlebell + band tricep extension: 2 x 10 @ 18 + light band

    Don’t stress.

    I spent a year deadlifting everyday and doing not much else. It led to just about every sort of soft tissue strain you could conceive of over the following six months and then it took me 3 months of sweating just to develop the GPP baseline necessary for conjugate upper-lower.

    Finally ready for RPE-measured big three + high volume accessories under @Browner ’S programming.

    It takes a long time to get back into proper training shape. My advice is just push yourself a lot with lower intensity and higher volume until you’ve adapted.

    I’m reading a book on the topic. I’m going to follow a 3-week initial building phase and then higher volume RPE work. In truth, my incline work today used a load for 10’s that was an RPE 8 to start. I’m trying to get into a good rhythm of feeling the difference between RPE 7, 8 and 9 - and then being militant to stay within those parameters.

    I feel comfortable with bigger volume on anything but deadlifts. High rep sets there make no sense given the tendency to not stay tight enough to prevent injury, even with lighter loads. I’ve seen it too many times, and had it happen to me too. I’ll figure out a best approach to use.

    High volume per session and high rep sets are different things :)

    Agreed. I’m going to tow a line between what I feel is too much per set but enough to induce a response for deads, and will base the per-set totals on feel. I believe my plan is a good one; we’ll see how the next few weeks go.

    I don’t end the 7-day, 2x per day cycle until October. My overall plan addresses this, plus my after-75 Hard life. I promise a photo on this board when this thing wraps. I’m down a ton of fat currently. The mental bonus is unreal.

    Today: 50 minutes of boxing bag work.

    Last night: 2.6 mile walk, including 2 diagonal hill walks.

    I absolutely love that quote, [mention]Jester [/mention]!

    Today:

    Deadlift: 3 x 10 @ 185 + medium bands
    Both sides of the bands were over the bar. I could have likely added a bit more to the bar, but gave myself some room for growth as this part of the plan executes.

    RDL: 3 x 15 @ 165

    Banded Reverse Hyper: 3 x 12
    I did these on the GHR stand (backwards). The regular reverse hyper rack was being used for band work (not using the reverse hyper). Lovely, right?

    Last night: 2.6 mile walk + 4 hill walks + 2 diagonal hill walks.

    Yesterday’s gym time was 50:00 of boxing bag work.

    Band Resisted OHP: 65 + medium bands: 12, 12, 11-1
    That baby weight was a true wake up call. The bands were resistance, yes; in no way, though, should 65 pounds been a struggle for 3x12.

    |
    Rear Delt Squeeze: 60 x 15, 15, 15

    |
    DB Skullz: 60 x 15, 15, 15

    Yesterday: extended walking at the zoo. I counted it as my outdoor workout simply due to my calories burned (per my Apple Watch). It was 90ish minutes of start-stop walking up plenty of hills.
