    Agreed 100%

    All I did was some WG pullups at the end of session 2 and some light arm work at the end of session 3. You will not need any accessory shoulder work believe me and your arms will do just fine with a quick couple of sets at the end of the week.

    Just do 2-3 sets of 10-12 at the end of the week for curls and tri work. Abs can be done more often.

    Agreed. Abs twice a week max. Its good to have a strong core but the squatting and Deadlifting will hit the abs more than enough.

    How did it feel?

    Back when I started this I was thought it felt way too light at first; by the end of the program it was a bit more challanging.

    felt alright, the Rows is one thing i gotta get used to, well the last set is always rough.
    i think my body was meant for power lifting rather than body building anyway.
    seems natural and fitting for me..

    I have some questions
    cus i think im doing this all wrong
    on Wednesday (in the middle of the split) the weights are all the same in each set (no upping etc)
    the other two days Monday, Friday the sets change in weight etc

    also i noticed.

    Monday bench the weight goes..

    180
    194
    208
    222
    236


    but as you know im not doing it like that because i thought it was just to show..

    and then next bench session on Friday
    its 219 for all sets

    219 weight is in the middle of mondays bench

    so do i have to add 14lbs
    per each set

    then the next time,
    do 5 sets of 5. with the weight in the middle of last workout?


    im somewhat confused..

    Its all progressive loading Hypo, believe me, it works. I'm not going to go into all the theoretical hoo-ha but I'm sure someone else will.

    3 sessions in a row is going to get brutal though...
