This thread's purpose is to hear from fellow animals their experience with such a taxing and flirting with overtraining split(NON steroid users), to see how it works for different individuals and help conclude it.

That's some good ass shit

But I have a couple questions

#1, everyone likes to go back and forth putting so much emphasis on Flat-Bench, yet he doesn't. What he's saying makes sense, we all know the delt recruitment in flat bench, so what do we do there?

And #2, I've been reading a lot lately about pre-exhaustion exercises and how they drop Muscle Fiber recruitment in your heavier movements. I'm not sure of the entirety of the truth to this study, but its a good idea to think about.

Any ideas?

i completly agree with him on the flat bench, its a great exercise but i think it is given to much superiority above other exercises especially the incline and flat db press,

as far as the second goes, some ppl claim that it is beneficial to pre exhaust for hypertrophy training but then again the pre exhaustion will fatigue the muscle therefore not allowing you to produce full force in the compound movements, a simple test go into the gym one day and do a start with compound lifts first record the numbers (sets, reps, weight), then the next time do some pre exhaust training and the see how the numbers add up to last sessions,

i personally dont like pre exhaust exercises because i feel like it takes away from my lifts, however i used it occasionally to change it up abit and in the exercise area it is hard to tell someone what they are doing is wrong because it may verywell be working for them so it comes down to trial and error

by the way a pretty cool program i feel inclined to try it

Ive done the legs for 2 weeks in row
except I did squat FIRST
then did the rest

ANd I did the arm work out
So far theyre both good
I have a pretty solid chest workout that I dont wanna change, as well as shoulders

But incorporating some of that stuff into my workouts has done great
