Comments Did this session at my house, got some looks from the neighbors at home doing the farmers in the street. I hope this is good, but i really felt like i could have gone for much longer training

How do you like the program so far after 2 cycles?

Honestly, i love it.

It gives me slow, steady progression on my main 4 lifts. Also, it gives me freedom to vary my assistance exercises. This might not be good, but i rarely do similar sessions for each day.

Thats one proble i have though, i should keep my assistance exercises more stable, consistent.

awsome man,i to am loving it..

i am about to finish my first cycle,i have been keeping my assistance stuff the same and trying to add wt/reps each week..

btw,on your farmer walks what do you use,i wanna start doing them...

also,i was wondering if you think farmer walks are best for grip strength.

sorry im asking so many questions lol,but i want to start incorperating strongman type training...
