    Specialization. I pick a bodypart and specialize on it so it's my primary focus for 3 months. Everything else is secondary or tertiary. What makes it work is muscle memory in a way. You can do just a little bit to somewhat maintain all the othr parts while focusing training and growth energy into the focused part. Then once that is over go back to normal training and the muscle memory works in your favor. Any losses in othre parts comes right back to previous level.

    My best results came with Starting Strength. Though to be honest, I was pretty much just starting out so they were a lot of noob gains. Still one of the best programs to get started with IMO.
