    Not bad for a homemade program. Props for squatting and DLing so frequently. Why not chins on Workout A? Why not DL 5x5 first on Workout B?

    I'd start with 3x10 RDL and rows, so that you can...

    Tightness is probably normal especially if you're doing so many. But you might be letting the KB get too far away from your center of gravity. Try keeping it up closer to your junk and see if that...

    You could always rotate lifts during the week depending on fatigue from squat and DL on that program. When you're feeling fresher, do the harder lift, and when not then do a lighter lift such as...

    My biggest obstacle this year is weight control. I won't let myself get fat again, so muscle growth has to really be earned this year without a big caloric surplus.

    Pin squats to full depth are really good for positioning, too. They force you to both descend and ascend in the right groove. I prefer them to pause squats because pause squats forgive you, if you...

    Does the program have to meet those exact guidelines? Seems to limit your options.
