    I'm very interested in this log and while I understand (basically) the RPE principle and load drops, I'm not following the general layout of your training such as frequency of workouts and exercise...

    Another plus to the conjugate method (to get kinda off track) is that it's more fun due to the variety that can be incorporated. The Sheiko stuff seems to work very well for some but I've tried it...

    On ME days (I'm talking about the bench press specifically but I suppose this would apply to all three lifts) it's understood...

    I thought so too. Lou's methods have definitely evolved, no question there, but I wonder if much of that evolution came about due to the changes in powerlifting equipment over the years. When that...

    This is a great idea, Vincent. I don't call myself a powerlifter as i don't compete (I just train for my own amusement...and the amusement of anyone who sees me train) and I generally lift by myself...
