    Increasing my upper body volume is definitely on my to-do list. Now that softball season is over, I should have more time and recuperative ability. I would be able to train my lower body better at a...

    a) It looks like a good program to me too. I've done an UL before but am finding 4 or 5 day full body to be more enjoyable because there isn't a leg or lower day that I dread.

    I think it's worth clarifying my use of RPE for anyone who think it might be holding me back (it isn't). I used RPE (as well as my performance at the end of the last program I finished) to determine...
