I dont know how many have read about this or tried it but i read in a few posts that some have made some nice gains but it says to gain 50 on ur max but for 1rm at 275 my final set of my workout is 300x1 thats only 25 im feeling a little cheated? Neway is it worth trying and if u have tried it how did it work for u?

What's this program you're referring to? I don't know how long it took, but a 25 pound increase doesn't sound bad when you're in that range.

I would expect to add 20-30 lbs to your bench, which is definately good for 2 months at your level. Some people might do better...

I've done it a few times and each time it varied. It can make you some really great gains though for 7 weeks time. I'd expect at least 20-30lbs from it- I think it would work wonders for a person that just started to train.

Does anyone have a link to this program? 20-30lbs sounds nice.

I did it about a year ago... No one I know has added 50 pounds from it, but most add 20-30, which isn't bad at all.

Post your results after, I'm interested to see what it will do for both of you.

notsoperfect, did you try maxing at the claimed 50lbs a few days after you finished the program? it had you doing 300 after doing a set of 3 at 265 and a set of 2 at 285, so i dont think that 300 accurately represents your 1rm.

I had great results from the program the first time I did it...

I went from 230lbs to 275lbs...

however, diet is the one factor that most young bodybuilders gloss over...

I really had my diet spot on when I did that program...you've got to just pound the protein...

I should also add that I was using creatine for the first time so this must have been back in 1997...

the program was in the very first bodybuilding magazine I ever purchaced...

does anyone have a copy of the squat program that came out a couple months before?

now that Muscle Media 2000 has gone all prissy on us they don't cover the power lifts like the squat much anymore...
