Myself and 7 of my friends are about to begin CT’s “Pillars of Strength” leg specialization program on Monday.
It should be very interesting. The 8 of us include both males and females from 20yrs old up to 51yrs old. We are going to go through it 3 times for a total of 9 weeks. We will also be taking before photos Monday before we start and then after photos at the end of 9 weeks to see what kinds of results we get.
Has anyone done this program before and if so, how did it work for you? If you have pics please post them up.
This is going to be grueling but I am looking forward to it!
Nice idea! I think doing it once is enough though (i.e. 3 rotations of workouts A, B, & C). Specialisation programmes can start to become counter-productive if you keep them up too long.
I did it before and added just short of an inch to each thigh (measured about a week after completing the programme). I should stress though, that it was the first time I’d done serious hypertrophy work on my legs with a caloric surplus & I was coming off the back of about 9 months of heavy strength training on a caloric defecit - so I doubt if those results would be typical.
Enjoy your first B workout - that’s all I’m sayin’!
Thanks for the feed back! I will definitely keep an eye out for any signs of over training. We are going to decrease the volume on the upper body and our diets are really dialed in so we will see how it goes.
I haven’t even done the program yet and I already know that the B workout will be the killer one. The one thing everyone is looking forward to about the B routine though is the double dose of Surge. We are hooked on the stuff like a bunch of crack fiends!
