    I really like the program I'm doing right now: no program
    Lifting at most every other day, and at least one extra day of rest every third workout (basically 3 days a week with possibly more rest days as I feel like it)
    I choose the exercises for the day based off of what I haven't done recently. And I basically go as hard as I can for 1 or 2 sets, not much is predetermined

    This is what worked for me in the past, and I'm going to keep doing it.

    Its what makes lifting fun for me, just getting raged out and doing as many reps as I can
    -----

    I could give no fuks about my squat right now. Biggest priority is my deadlift (which is why I'm doing so many good mornings), then bench/press, then squat

    For deadlift, I'm going to do 3 reps, then 4 reps the next workout, then 5. Then add 10 lbs and reset the reps to 3. Want to get 455x5 at least doing this

    For bench, I'm doing 3 sets of 5, then 3 sets of 6 then 7 the following workouts. Then add 10 lbs and repeat. If I have to drop sets because it gets too hard, so be it. Really hoping this will get me to one set of 315x5 finally

    And if I'm having a bad day and the weight feels heavier than it should, I'll take it easy and try next time.

    I've already been doin this for a couple weeks at least
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8
    Deadlift: 405x10 (dead stop w/ straps)

    Sounds like a cool system. Definitely keeps motivation and focus high as you come to each lift fresh. Do you track much detail about your progress, RPE, fatigue, and all that? Might be useful metrics for finding how to keep improving your system. The RTS app is free and tracks lots of data.

    I don't track much detail, though if I get a big PR I'll highlight it or put it in my sig

    If I fail a rep I'll log it like (185x5 failed 6th)
    If I get all reps I'd just log it like (185x6) so no way of telling if it was a maximum effort or not
    A few days ago, I stopped my presses short on a warm up weight because I wasn't recovered enough and I recorded that info in the log

    Basically there's not much organization lol

    I'll check out the RTS app, but I kind of like the freedom of not worrying about all the details being tracked.

    When I was doing the everyday frequency thing, I started to keep a spreadsheet tracking the volume of each workout to ensure there was an overall long term positive trend upwards. Hard to describe but I didn't really like that, kind of felt like I was 'micromanaging' myself if that makes sense

    Next time I do squats I'm thinking I'll try that constant tension thing

    Yeah I hear you about micromanaging. Could just log RPE of top set each workout to see trends over time.

    That RTS app has a good "reports" section where you can track one or more lifts in detail.

    Yeah, even without going as strict as RPE I could at least qualitatively say "easy" "grind" "tough" or something like that

    I also feel like I've been in a really big plateau over the past few months, I might feel really bad if I see a graph of E1RM lol
    ---

    Feel like for all these I could have maybe done a smidge more weight, but not more reps probably (can't remember what RPE # this is, but high). Basically all these sets were really hard, but not like I was taking 5 seconds to grind out the last reps

    Bench-
    285x6
    285x6
    285x6

    Row-
    245x5
    245x5

    Paused squat-
    375x3 (paused all reps)

    Rear delt flies-
    25sx10
