That's good advice.

It's a very fine line between doing enough and too much posterior chain work. I ran a routine that gave me great gains but fried my posterior. It was my first attempt (in 2007) at designing my own powerlifting routine. My deadlift was strong as heck, but my lower back absolutely hated me.

It was setup like this:

Monday
Heavy Squats - 4 week progression, not unlike Wendler's but with more volume
Good Mornings
RDLs
Heavy Abs

Thursday
Heavy Deadlifts - 4 week progression, not unlike Wendler's but with more volume
Rack Pulls
Front Squats
Heavy Abs
