That was exactly what I was hoping for with you book: unique and helpful.

Thank you

Most of us tend to want to tinker and play with assistance work, often doing too much work that really isn't assisting. Brian's strategy will really help me focus on the areas that need assistance, not just get in extra work.

Thanks BC
That was an angle that I took with the book that would make it more than just a template or a guide, but a reference point that can be used for ever.

Thanks

I haven't had a chance to pick up/read the book yet Brian, but I get the feeling I may be doing it already, or at least heavily influenced by, as JB has been doing my programming for 10 weeks now, and my progression has just been insane of late, including a 495 lb squat, which was a 30 lb PR.

Once things settle down at home (wife just has major shoulder surgery) I will pick up the book for sure.

Thanks for the kind words
I would love to do a comparison between the two. I'll order your book and then report back to you with my thoughts. Thanks Brian.

Indeed! By the way, Allison Lockhart says Hi - I train with her every weekend, and she is in my vid of my paused squats:



She is such an incredible powerlifter who never ceases to inspire me.
