i think its good if you’re just starting out. i love the 3 x 12’s in the program. you should see good gains. id get rid of the smith machine and peck deck exercises though. just add more sets to your bench. dumbbell and barbell.

This ones better

455 for 15rp on the incline bench
500 for 10 reps on the deadlift
90lb dumbell curls for 20rp
425 for 20rp on the close grip
315lbs for 15-20rp on the military
150lb rack chins for 20rp
600lb calf presses extreme stretched for 12
550 for 4-5 and 405 for 15-20 reps on the squat
the weight stack and chained plates for 15-30rp on the leg curl

It’s called ‘DoggCrap’

I wish I could even do that much weight for one rep on any of those exercises.

I know. I’d been hearing about DoggCrap for a long time, and then Der Candy posted this on his ‘my advice rocks!’ thread.

This routine is followed by the phrase ‘any one who does this is going to be one strong motherf*(ker!’

Which… is true.

It looks like any old program you’d get from a muscle magazine, NTTAWWT.

Personally, I just don’t like doing that much different shit on one day. Three or four different things and I’m gassed, but that’s just me.
