Too much volume? Did you read JB’s article today or CW’s the other day? I think it might not be enough!
Well your certainly right but they also talk about variation, different set/rep schemes, ME, DE, Endurance Sports…if you stick to 3x8 for all your w/o I think you could burn out quite quickly.
What do you think?
I have to agree here. I mean you can go to the gym 5 days in a row but you really should vary the rep/set/weight scheme a bit or you will burn out.
I made a 3 on 1 off program and didn’t adjust the rep/set/weight scheme and burnt out after two weeks…
So something along the lines of, go heavy on day one (high set, low rep, high weight) then go down on day two (low set, high rep, low weight) to speed up recovery, then increase again but not as much as day 1 maybe, etc…
Basically add variety to avoid the body adapting and to allow for recovery in order not to burn out…
Something that might favour this is doing 5 days a week but with a 2on/1off/3on/1off cycle.

I think those are pretty good suggestions actually!
I don’t think I’ll burn out on this program after 4 weeks though. To be honest this program seems somewhat easy to me at the moment. Compare it to Quattro Dynamo; the Waterbury Method, or Single’s Club and it’s cake. The only program I really think I burned out on (when not on the v-diet) was Quattro Dynamo. I was in the last week of it and my joints just said “No more!” on the last few sets of the program.
But overall this is just an experiment and a change! I’ll see how it goes.
Granted it’s not as well-designed of a program as one from an expert on this site it’s still quite a good program in my mind!
