I myself am using this program as i have just had a break of 3 weeks or so as my footy (aussie rules) season came to an end so i had a break. THe wieghts i am starting with are a little lower than previous lifts so i dont get burned out or feel too fatigued as it suggests leaving the gym fresh not fkd
I will up them each week if i feel like i can do it. I also go by the prescribed rest periods as best i can.
I have found its a bit of a 'mental' difference when doing this compared to westside as its a max effort compared to a sustained effort of the same weight if you get what i mean so that impacts on the weight i use. I have to keep telling myself that i cant go too heavy or i will be totally fkd.
So far, the first week is over and felt really good. I felt i stayed within my limits on most lifts and feel i can up some weights..
A side note...on most of my other programs, there has been very litte or no direct arm work (no curling for instance) and now this one has 2 exercises a week for curls and found i FKN hate them...i have hated arm work or curling for a while preferring to stick with the bigger lifts...lol...seems kinda silly but was wondering if anyone else feels like this too...??
