well i am just curious when you guys use CW or CT’s programs, do you do exactly what is prescribed? i just recently started the pendulum program and i have been integrating my own movements but incorporating the basic premise behind the program as far as set rep and isometric holds are concerned.
does anyone else tweak the programs? is this a bad idea?
I’m on DeFranco’s westside/skinny bastards routine. I followed it to the “T” for the first three months, and got good gains. Now its getting a little stale, so I am varying the reps and sets a little more. In my instance, my legs are my weak spot. So I am concentrating just a little more on them, adding deadlifts to some upper body days.
Tweaking works for me, but only on a small basis. I trust the guys who make the routine, and if it doesn’t work you’ll know after a month anyway.
