Comments On This Program/Workout

I’m moving into week 5 of Thib’s OVT program and wanted to get some input on these lifts. I’m loving the first 4wks of OVT. It’s awesome to add more weight each week. I set weight expectations for myself before every workout and I constantly destroy my expectations, it’s awesome.

If you’re not familiar with the program it consists of pre-fatigue supersets.

All comments welcome. Thanks in advance.

I’d swap the order of these. Pullovers, the isolation movement, would go second.

One-legged Romanian or stiff-leg deadlift, right?

Barbell rows for shoulders? Maybe swap these for face pulls and seated lateral raises or high pulls and incline reverse flyes.

I see what you mean with the Pullovers & Rows. I checked CT’s recommendations for weeks 5-8 and he does have them in the order I noted here…makes me wonder why now? No big deal though, guess I’ll switch them.

Yes to the Romanians, sorry I didn’t mention that.

I am going to take your advice and change the last set of shoulders to High Pull and incline reverse flys.

Thanks for the advice man! Good stuff.
