Once again, the program is based on PERFORMANCE - both in conditioning and strength training, and in hundreds of cases, performance on the field/court. I have no interest in anything other than performance. I have written countless templates and articles for athletes as well as working, in my weight room and in universities, with athletes.
This is not a PL program - this is a strength program. As you may know, I spent the vast majority of my life as a football player and coaching football, baseball, track, volleyball, basketball. I continue to work with young athletes and young non-athletes. So you are welcome to use the program however you want. I will continue to work and help others, as I have for the past 20 years, with their PERFORMANCE.
You are welcome to disagree with my thoughts on "cutting". It doesn't bother me at all. I long stopped trying to appease and make everyone happy.
