    squats/deadlifts/compound moves over rated?

    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the board. I've only looked around for about 10 minutes, but this board looks pretty good.


    I was flipping through this months FLEX when I saw the article "gunters extreme makeover." It's Gunthers new workout, invented by Charles Glass.

    I noticed 3 things
    1) no deadlifts
    2) no barbell squats
    3) He's got about a 1:1 ratio of compound to isolation movements, ie hes doing as much iso as compound.

    Most people I know disagree with all 3 of those, but Charles Glass is one of the most famous trainers in the world, and Gunter just took 4th in Mr. O.

    Gunter has enough mass but he needs more details. I think this is the reason that CG has him on that program. Unless you have the genes, drugs, and time, most pro programs are not really worth their salt.
