I've been following the Shockwave program for about 3 months with good success. CBL on workout evenings, no HIIT, and good strength/mass gains so far. Surprisingly gaining scale weight and losing/maintaining body fat on the following: 2200 kcal, 200g protein and 200g white rice (CBL) and 0.5/1 (ULC). I like the program and am happy with where it has taken me.However, I discovered early on that I needed to deload (in my case, skip training all together) every fourth or fifth week and skip entirely the "X" sets because I was getting completely fried.I'm 35 y/o, no gear, 210lbs, and my loads are somewhat respectable on the big compound movements: 515 DL, 365 SQ, 250 BP right now all for 3 reps on the top PSR ELECT sets.I wasn't too concerned with the deloads, but lately I have also felt the need to skip some of the other sets during the training weeks because I am smoked. For example, this week I didn't do the 2x10 SLDL's on squat day, which I had been doing with 350lbs, because I just couldn't make myself do the pulls after squatting.Anyone else finding the need to pare back the program when they were at levels similar to mine? I'm just curious because I like the program but I'm starting to feel like a wimp or something by carving stuff out. I assume Wendler would approve of a more minimalist 5/3/1 style program, but my experience thus far makes me want to stick with SW.
