Heavy relatively speaking. I prefer lower reps and trying to explode the weight. But it's definitely not ME work in the Westside sense.
Split is constantly evolving. I actually just made some changes and here is how it looks:
Day 1 (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
6:30 a.m. - Isometric Holds with Bands (for chest and back)
11:00 a.m. - Squat, 4x5
Front Lever Progression
Pressing movement on rings
Day 2 (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday)
6:30 a.m. - Walk Dog
11:00 a.m. - Deadlift, 4x5
OH Press, 6x5
Additional back or arm work
That is the basics of it. Each day during the week will have a slightly different focus so I will choose additional movements accordingly.
Each night I try to add in some type of additional activity, here is my hierarchy of preferred activity depending on time and weather:
1. Eccentric-less work with my tire sled, emphasis on legs, but with upperbody thrown in as well.
2. L-sit holds superset with Weighted Serratus Crunches.
Next 3 are a tie in terms of preference:
3b) Tire Sled Sprints
3c) Calve Raises
Also, given the proximity to my show, I tend to run through the mandatory poses at least once or twice per day. And once or twice per week I practice my night show routine.
Speaking of that, if you have time, I'd love for you to check out my videos and give your feedback:
