When looking at programs there are several variables involved. One major variable is conditioning. A lifter shouldn't jump into a program like an 8x3 going guns blazing. This should be built into, with weight, time and volume.

Another thing to consider is weekly volume. How many weekly reps are you doing? On squats someone could do an 8 set x 2-3 reps, twice a week, with is about 40 reps, or a 5x5 which has a lifter squatting 3x a week, which is probably nearly the same amount of reps - give or take.

Recovery has many different layers, and is very program specific, and unique to the lifter and the point in the iron game in which the lifter is at.

One key rule to remember is to never jump full speed into any new program style. Take time and build conditioning and weight.
