This program is really worth a try. I had been training a while and my gains had started to stall, so I gave it a shot and I honestly believe it is one of the best, most-effective training protocols ever.
Thanks Sheesh. I bookmarked it and will give it a try later on this year to see if I like it.
Just thought I'd throw my exp with this in here. Definitely a good workout, I gained about 8 pounds off of it, starting to overtrain at the end so I didnt do the last week but I'd say definitley worth a try.
if this is the iron man bulletin then yes its a fantastic program..it was just as great years before when arthur jones introduced it then u have steve holman shows up slaps his gimmick on and then gives u a phase 2 to the program,that made absolutley zero sense(as he was supposedly advocating less training)..the funny thing is reading letters in ironman and hearing people praise the first half of the program but say the other pof programs didnt yeild as great results..lol holmans a jackass in my opinion and i take great offense in him claiming mentzer was his influence..he never read the mans books..but i digress and am stepping off my soapbox and just reminding u this is only my opinion..so write it off as u will
i will give this program a try, it looks good.
Ha! I'm dragging this one out from the dead! Your welcome.
I'm starting this program this week. I've been doing 2-3 whole body workouts for the past month, but will be following this to the T.
If you've done this, what were your results from it? And did you follow it exactly?
My current stats are:
Waist is freakin' high of late, 34 1/2 inches! **** man!
Arms are just over 14 inches. omg!
Chest/back is 42 inches.
Middle of quad is 23 inches
Don't laugh, these are flexed. Ha!
Will also be doing 15 mins. or less 2-3 times a week of boxing, jump-roping-interval. And some basketball. Will be limiting these so they don't get in the way of my strength gains, etc. Will be sleeping 8-9 hrs.
Supps. will be:
Pre WO - Jacked by USPLabs
Post WO - Nos Ether by Get Diesel
DTP cycle by Get Diesel
Goals are to be 195 by the end of this year and 8 % with the bodyfat.
I love sprinting and will it be okay if I skip a leg WO for a sprint WO at the track once a week or maybe every other week?
Thanks for any imput you may have.
Oh, I also took before pics. about 4 weeks ago, and will take some after this program.
i wouldn't pass on any leg workouts.. sprints are great for endurance and fast twitch muscle fiber stimulation, but, nothing compares to grinding out some ass to the grass squats and stiff leg deads for putting size on the wheels.. throw the sprints in on an off day, or do them on an upper body day..
About the sprints, your right about that. Throw it in on an off day will work better.
Will be adding in some high intensity techinques here and there with this. I follow the guys at Iron Man, Steve Holman and Lawson, x-rep.com
So my new goal is to be 190lbs. 8 %bodyfat by the end of this yr. Been drinking less and less, only on weekends, a few cold ones...light beers and some Goose here & there. But tired of dishing out the dough for it. **** is expensive, but so damn good on the rocks with some olives!!
Been splurging on the weekends with cheat meals but it's tooooo much and I'm so bloated for days, gaining some fat around my waist, getting a small spare tire. I hate it. Will up my carbs on the weekend but will be clean at the same time. Just more brown rice, more sweet potatoes and some PB&J thrown in. That's it though.
Who ever wants to follow my progress I'll keep it here in my blog. Any imput is always welcome.
I DONT WANT TO BY 50 AND THINKING BACK THAT I WOULD HAVE PUT MORE INTO IT, WORKED HARDER. This **** is vital to me!
so how did the size surge do you?
Thanks for the link.
