Anti-Establishment Hypertrophy

I've been giving this routine a go for the last month:

http://www.t-mag.com/nation_articles/244anti.jsp

Just had a week off to establish some 1 RMs (only had bench press, years since I've done a 1RM on anything else).

I've had encouraging results in the first month, good enough to stick with it few a while and see what happens.

Anyone tried it (or similar)?

    Just when I thought I somewhat figured it all out, someone has to throw me a curve.

    I thought, from reading MANY times on this chat board, that a muscle group should not be trained more than once per week. According to the article MORE is better....." The more frequent the growth-stimulating sessions you can have, the better. "

    Someone please explain this to me!
    Cheers

    Yeah, it's pretty alien to me but I was intriqued by the guys logic.

    I've pretty much always trained 3 times a week, heavy weights, to failure.

    The big thing about this is that you don't even approach failure (now that is alien to me). The logic being you don't nail your CNS so you can cope with a second session (and you get to do A LOT more total reps with a heavy weight by not going to failure everyset).

    I've found I don't hurt the next day, or the day after that. No soreness, no tightness.

    I've only tried it for a month but bench went up 12 lbs, arms measurements went up 1/4" and weight went up 6 lbs (BF measurements suggest that it was mostly muscle). Obviously that was with increase calorie/protein intake.

    Very interesting...

    looks good to me

    what do you think about the vertical pushing and pulling day? Dips and chins could get stale after a long time

    mind you, im really only considering it from a strength point so it might be irrelevant

    I've always done dips and chins as core exercises, so suits me.

    strength comes from CNS more then muscle system. As this reduces the training of the CNS shouldn't you look at different sort of program.
