Assessment of Cycle II At the beginning of Cycle II, I listed my priorities as: Consistency > microloading > early morning > assistance > sled work > bike commuting > mobility > weight loss. I achieved the first two, consistency and microloading. Goals for Cycle III I will continue to strive for consistency and progressive overload via microloading. I will also try to re-integrate the presses after spraining my wrist about a month ago. Next I think I will prioritize sled work. Not sure if I will worry much about when my workouts occur during the day, although first-thing remains the ideal. I will also start bike-commuting more once my wrist feels solid. Not sure if I will worry about assistance. I guess I will sense when the time is right for that without having to program it. If all goes well, I should have my lifts up around where they were at the end of 2015. The basic push/pull split will remain the same: Push: Squat, Overhead Press, Bench Press Pull: Deadlift, Pendlay Row, Chinups I will try to get in at least two iterations of the split each week, optimally three. I will also continue with the 3 x 3 x 90% of 1RM protocol, using a base unit (BU) and the iron ratio to calculate the loads. The Iron Ratio is: Overhead Press: 2 x BU = 1RM Row: 2.75 x BU = 1RM Bench Press & Chinup: 3 x BU = 1RM Squat: 4 x BU = 1RM Deadlift: 4.8 x BU = 1RM The Base Unit will continue to increase by a half-pound for each iteration of the split, until the rate of increase becomes too hard or too easy.
