Overall that looks rock solid. Good core squat and deadlift work.

I agree, but I forgot to post that he suggests only working out 2 times a week. Like Monday and Thursday, this is just not my style. I do not think I could handle only working out twice a week.

That I didn't know. I also read that he doesn't follow that style anymore because of the wear and tear it placed on his body, although I've not read that personally. It seems to be somewhat of an urban legend-type statement. I wonder if he used a more intense approach in his youth...

It doesn't look unusually intense compared to some of the work done on this forum. Except for some of the partial work, and I don't have a heck of a lot of experience with that.

I agree, it is really not that much volume to only be working out two times a week, the book makes it sound like you should be sore for days and only want to lift twice a week if you work hard enough. I am not sure about that.

I think after my competition I am going to use a lot of his concepts especially partials and bottom position stuff, but us what jamie at chaos and pain has been doing lately. Squat one day, a push/pull the next day and do this every other day, so I would be lifting 6 times a week
