531 Concurrent Training (C34_1D)

This morning I completed 531 Concurrent Training (C34_1D) as follows:

Shoulder Rehab - Red micro bands

(Max Effort)
SSB Squats  3-45, 3-135, 3-155, 3-185, 3-205, 3-230,
            3-260, 2-305, 2x3 @ 260 

(Dynamic Effort)
4" Block Pull Sumo DL  3-135, 3-225, 5x3 @ 275

Decline Situps  3x12
Hypers  3x12

Bodyweight: 214.0 Pounds (Down 8.2 pounds from 222.2 on 7/9)

Workout Duration: 0:46:39.71 h:mm:ss.ms (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Excellent workout.  I really enjoy this program so far.  The volume of the dynamic work is really hitting me in a new way.  As part of that though it has increased my soreness and so I think what I'm going to do is alternate a week of this Concurrent program with a week of my Madcow 531 program.  I think doing that will allow me to work in complementary ways and get more work in while allowing my body to recover better.  Both of these programs hit me hard and leave me sore, but in a different way.  I think the two will dovetail nicely together.  Basically, what this will do is to make an extended "7 workout per training week" program using the same Training Max for both programs.  I think this will really allow me to dial in my lifts each "week" before raising the weights and moving on to the next week.
