I’ve always designed my own programs and would always stick with them for too long or not long enough, and even when I stuck with them for awhile, I usually didn’t integrate any intelligent progression into them, but rather just stuck with them and increased weight when I felt like I could. No deloading, no change of energy systems. So I thought that I should try doing some premade programs for their full length until I really get a good handle on the individualization thing.
However, nothing really exists for lifting programs like the “New Diet Manifesto” ( http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_diet_nutrition_bodybuilding/the_new_diet_manifesto ) for diets. So I was hoping folks could list, rate, and review some of their favorite programs. It would be a good starting point for me and others looking to get a handle on what their body responds to best.
It would be great if people could lay it out like:
Name of program
Rating from 1-10
Review and comments on the program.
Maybe some personal info, like length of time training, weight, body-type, etc.
