I've been on the routine for a couple weeks now. I'm currently cutting, but progression is going at a good pace and the lifts flow very well together. I just switched from a 4 day routine (5/3/1) and much prefer the feel of the new one.

By the end of week two, I've hit rep records on chins and dips - not an easy thing to do at 250#s. My bench feels more solid, my squats are doing better with the increased frequency, and the power cleans are on the fast track to big weights.

The best part of the routine IMO is the frequency that important lifts get hit. Heavy deadlifts for than once a week will burn you out quickly, the extra squatting is good practice, and the rotation on bench/OHP will help keep your shoulders strong and healthy while giving you a very respectable bench press.

Final note, if my progression is going well on a cut, I can't wait to see how well it goes once I start to bulk again. Full bodies and bulks were meant for each other.
