I dont really know the specifics, but I do compound movements and unilateral almost everyday I train, try do explosives as well. Lots of cleans, jerks, rows, snatches, and squats and presses. I run between 9-21 miles a week, 3 miles a morning if i do run.

I about 90-96% sure on the weights and reps but I don't write anything down and I use a old bodybuilding technic called "instinctive training" for my weight days- basically I have a general idea of what I want to do but don't stick to it always, depends on if the gym is crowded, I'm sore, etc.

I train for triathlons- first one in 11 weeks, so I do less weight w/os and when I do it will be massive supersetting with low weight/high rep and my run/bike/swim w/o will increase with two-a-days and then combo w/o closer to the event.
