Think I've found a little bit of routine for the next month+ until the AAU meet in Dec.
DL with 35# plates
Pull-ups + a set or so of DB row
Floor press or Dips
DL - working to a heavy double
Simple and to the point - intensity will be rotated and I kind of go by the feel of the day when I get in the gym but it comes from my gut once I get in there. Then I look back at my log and find I've been rotating intensity pretty well.
DL today off of the 35# plates for 405 for three sets of three reps felt great. Pull-ups will be weighted and the floor press, dips, DB bench rotation is to deal with the fact that I don't have a consistent spotter for the bench - gotta make due and bring up some weak areas while I do.
Keeping the squats in the rotation will keep those progressing but allow me to keep the focus on the DL.
As the old saying goes - "I love it when a plan comes together."
