with a name like "T-Baggins," how could any program go wrong?
that looks good, actually. like you said, you can always add accessory work (which i'd definitely do) for volume. or maybe you could even do 2 weeks with assistance, 1 week without.
i prefer variation 2. i dislike linear progressions. i had a bad experience with a standard 12-week periodization scheme. i'm sure i was making lots of newbie mistakes -- like not eating enough -- but i still don't like looking down the line and seeing nothing but straight increases in intensity or volume.
