did front squats today - with the clean grip I was doing it wrong cause it was loading up my wrists, was much more manageable with arms crossed, but I think I might have had the bar sitting too far forward on the delts. Did manage to get 5x100 out though.

I'm assuming that's 55% of your 1RM, which you'd have a loose idea of.

I like my exercise to be very simple so to me that's a bit too involved.

I'm also not keen on splits where if you miss one day for whatever reason you miss that work for a week - but I realise splitting allows greater targeting and emphasis which is great for those with a specific goal.

I'd have a thought a full body workout x times a week would be fine for you Leesh, as you seem to want general fitness, well being, and some nice aesthetics. OR are you now looking to be a fitness model or something?

0.55 × 47.5 will give you what you seek

thanks, so 26.5kg wow that's light haha, is 3 reps of that for 8 sets really going to do anything?

Mitch beat me too it, just times anything you need by the percentage number with a decimal in front of it.

That chick is too muscular IMO, but if that's your goal then a split routine will likely be a must, as will excellent diet.

You can do it!

Thats your speed day and your meant to be moving the weight explosively to train the muscle fibres and neural system, its not to try and build muscle.

Do a bit of background reading on louie simmons westside method and itll help explain the ideas behind each day
