I agree with what he has to say in general. I also had a terrible time trying to max week after week. It really beat me down mentally way more than physically. I ran Fazc' 5x 1 program for a couple months and made huge gains as it's a great program, but I was relieved to come off of it I can tell you!

From what I've read of the Cube program, it seems like something that would work for me as I have trouble sometimes gearing up mentally for a 100% effort, and I have had recovery problems from time to time after going all out.

If I only had to go all out mentally on each lift only once a month, that would be easier for me and I'm sure recovery wouldn't be a problem at all.

However, I think if I was getting close to a meet, I'd sharpen up with some big ass singles like with Fazc' program over the last 6 weeks or so.

Just my .02!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
