    Ok I'll start. I lift.

    Monday : medium bench, squat
    Tuesday : deadlift

    Thursday : heavy bench and squat

    Saturday : light bench and deadlift

    The squat and deadlift both go in the same cycle of medium, heavy and light add the bench but only 2/3rds of a cycle per week. It's set up to be a light squat before a heavy deadlift.

    Working very well atm.

    Wednesday/Thursday
    Friday/Saturday

    Squat every workout.

    Snatch pull variation

    Until I started heavy rep squatting I'd also do a clean pull variation. (Dropped ATM because I don't want to over tax my lower back)

    Accessory work (light good mornings, maybe some ab work)

    Mobility (ankle stretching, shoulders) and SMR.

    Wednesday: STEP
    Thursday: STEP, FP2, FP3, FP4
    Friday: STEP, S2, FP2, FP4

    Give yourself a break. I'd leave the undergraduate stuff too, its just unnecessary.

    I was training that low frequency last year, surely a more Full body approach would better suit?

    I'm not going to burn out. I really enjoy maths and will be careful.
    I'm ok. It's really fun and I have to practise if I am to get the grades I want. I'm not serious with the undergraduate stuff, it's just a few hours per week and I'm enjoying learning the new concepts.


    Thanks.
    Cambridge or Warwick?
    I basically got my a-level maths modules to the point that I knew them well enough and then used all of my maths lessons to do step questions. I did have the bonus of only having m2/fp2/fp3 exams in June though - knowing what I needed to reach the a-level half of my offer took away a lot of pressure.

    With the ug stuff are you focusing on concepts or are you looking at proofs?

    Yea but I was too lazy to list it tbh.

    I do pause Squats and front squats alternately.

    I do a wide grip bench (maximum legal width since my usual grip is too close to bother with close grip) one day, four second pause and slingshot work another and shoulders on the other.

    Deadlifts I do rows, shrugs, cable rows, lat pulldown etc one day and 18" deadlifts the other.

    Throw in arms and facepulls and that's a good description without me actually checking my blog.

    I forgot to mention that my gym workout was supersetted with getting a first in a masters degree from a decent uni for the last four years.

    Now it's just alongside my full time job in industry.


    These things are not mutually exclusive. As someone that's interviewed graduates we turned down the people that did nothing but study for years, no part time jobs or hobbies etc.


    Why come into this thread? Seriously? To make yourself feel clever over all the meatheads? Oh wait, the others I know that lift are all at decent unis or one has just graduated from Cambridge.

    Chest and legs

    You need to either go more often or start doing full body workouts if you want to get the most out of these sessions.

    What are your aims? Strength? Aesthetics?

    Overly easy is more about time, there's other stuff I want and need to do at weekends. It'd be nice to space things more evenly but I'd be making life more difficult than it needs to be.

    Legs need the rest for now, hopefully it'll change as I get better conditioned for taekwondo. The other day I was doing cleans with 40/50kg and could feel it on my quads, never really felt a clean anywhere before.

    Fair enough. How about some light Fronties on Saturday?

    I only train Saturday because the gf works.

    Warwick or Bath. I'll fail GCSE English, so I need amazing grades in all of my A-levels and STEP to have a chance of getting in. I don't know what grades exactly I'll need. I'll email them soon asking them what I'd need for them to accept me. If it's attainable, eg. A*A*A*AA, 1, 2, 2 I'll work as hard as I can to get in. If they ask for something like A*A*A*A*A*, S, S, S I wouldn't make the offer and would have to take a gap year. At the moment I have 18 exams, but depending on the offer I might do M3 as well.


    I'm looking at both. Proof would be useful for STEP, so I'll probably focus more on that as the exams get closer.
    Blimey hahaha, I got a Morse offer for Warwick A*AA no step, plus already got A* in maths but you seem to do a lot of work and I haven't done work after school for two months plus been off school need to pick up work as I've been focusing on exercise and diet too much lately
