The reason why I changed it up from my program to this is simple. I wanted a new eye on my own programming to see how far someone else can push me. I have done my e-book program for almost 5 months with some great results and I was ready for something different before I go back to my program.

I said before, my program is NOT a strength specific program.. its a hybrid of strength and bodybuilding. It will put on a great base of what you need to get ready to peak for a meet, to look better, be stronger and have some symmetry. I love what my program did for me and I will go back to it after this.

Day one thoughts: I am a huge fan of volume and this has it. If this doesn’t bring my squat up, I will seriously raid a fucking village in Iowa somewhere.
