I have had great success with the cube. PRs every meet for past 2 years. I would commit to at least 2-3 full cycles. The cube allows lots of flexibility in terms of volume and recovery. Chad Smith has a great variation on his site for a long cycle.
Your comment regarding rotating main lifts is confusing. The cube principles are rooted in the heavy, rep, speed rotation of your main lifts. So in short, if your squatting benching and pulling using the rotation stated above you are in fact doing the cube as written. Your accessory work should be based on your individual weak points. Good luck. [/quote]
All I have is the original book and it says to rotate the main lift for bench and deadlift. Looks like I’ve got some more reading to do regarding the newer permutations of the cube.
