    I wouldn't recommend training on more days just yet, rather I'd do GPP on the off days.

    Thanks Jordan,

    I think I'll start there.

    Is there any harm in upping the days throughout the week if I have the time for additional training days. If not should I just reserve those days for the additional conditioning that is prescribed.
    If I could up the days should I just repeat the first day of the week?

    DStopka,

    Thanks for the post. We would recommend our Beginner Prescription in this case: https://www.barbellmedicine.com/blog...-prescription/

    I think this will set you up for success

  • Bench Press Stalling w/ Linear Progression but a long way to go on Squat and Deadlift

    I had an injury summer 2019 that lead me to choose to stay out of the gym till October/November. I restarted what I am learning is essentially a linear progression where my compound exercises are worked for 4 sets of 4-6 where I add weight whenever I can hit my working reps at 6 reps and continue to work up from there. Due to the injury being lower back and hip related I was fearful to start deadlifting and squatting right away so my linear progression of those lifts was well behind my bench press and my bench press was previously stronger in the first place. Now I feel like I'm getting to a place where I'm plateauing at 225 for 4 sets of 5-6 and these are feeling what I'm learning is a RPE of ~9.5 to 10. This being said I'm continuing my deadlift and squat progression with Squat currently at 245 and climbind and deadlift at 285 and climbing. These are feeling easy so I know I still have run way in front of me. j

    Should I change my planning for my press exercises while continuing linear progression of my lagging compound lifts?

    Currently doing push pull, legs split twice a week.

    Push days consist of:
    Flat Bench 225 4 sets of ~5
    Dumbbell overhead press ~120 3x6(alternate days with overhead press ~135 3x6
    Dumbell Chest Fly ~100 3x3x8
    Dumbbell side raise ~60x3x8
    Tricep push down superset with face pulls

    First Post so far, I have been Consuming both your and Alan Thrall's content constantly over the past few weeks. Definitely interested in learning a lot more for my own training and to train friends and family.
