I can give an opinion :slight_smile: I think any program is decent. The one you have doesn’t look bad at all. but, in my opinion, GVT, ABBA, Quattro, etc. can be cycled over and over again with gains. Once in a GREAT while, I’ll go astray and do 5x5s and try something else, but I’m always running back to the training programs found here at T Nation. This time, I’m not going astray :slight_smile:
