I am going to modify my workout yet again to a more power training type of workout. I am growing bored of the typical bodybuilder style workout. Anyhow- twice a week- I am going to try more power workouts instead, to actually grow stronger but not to just buff up. Anyhow- for now its gonna look like this-
Power Workouts-
Day one-
High pulls
Overhead Squats
Power push ups
Reverse Power push ups (bodyweight rows done explosively)
Day Two-
Glute Bridges
Behind Neck Push Press
Dips
Pull ups

I know I won't get immensely buff off of these workouts...but I should be able to generate more power than I ever have in like 3 months with these types of workouts. Hopefully I'll still gain muscle mass as well.
