Here are the basics:
bench, one arm press, work your rhomboids, work your whole body in a complex then squat. Nothing fancy. Toward the end certainly not easy. You end up doing 50 rep squat sets, depending on your bodyweight, at what may be MORE than your bodyweight.
I put my ego aside and followed this program to a T (including the pb&j sandwiches suggested as "bulk food") and reaped the benefits.
I started off at 185lbs at just under 13% bodyfat as measured by a bodbod. At the end of the program I was 205lb at right at 14%bf. That is a HUGE lean mass gain. The 50 rep squat sets sucked. Bad. But they worked and felt great when I was done knowing that the other people in the gym had their jaws on the floor watching me do them. My bench also went up. With the addition of complexes my overall flexibility also got better.
I would suggest you follow the program as written. Don't do "extra" stuff. You will be kidding yourself. If you don't have to sit, lay down when you are not at the gym. No joke. Eating and sleeping will be a priority on the program for it to benefit as intended.
One drawback.. I needed new pants. The waist on my jeans got a little looser but the legs and backside got skinny jean tight. My wife liked that though. :)
This is Simple, not easy. Great program.
I'm 40yrs old and I have been lifting (on and off) for many years. Never in my life have I added so much weight to my bench in such a short time. In one month I added 35lbs to my bench! That is amazing for me. I am more on the slim side, and I can't just lift as my sole exercise. So, that is an amazing amount of weight for me to add. I did not finish the program because of an injury (unrelated to lifting). I followed the routine with a few modifications. Mr. John is adamant about one following the routine as he has prescribed, so I asked him about the modifications before I made them. He saw nothing wrong with the modifications. He will respond quickly to inquiries from his customers/clients (another great reason to buy his books). I gained just over 5lbs and lowered my body fat just slightly. Beware, if you are older than about 30 you should be very careful about your eating after you get off of this program. One can easily add some unwanted fat weight if you don't cut after this program. Once I have fully recovered from my injury, I will go back to this program.
Get this book. It will help you with strength and mass gains.
By contrast, "Mass Made Simple" is direct and simple. You do the same full body workout every three days, only increasing loads I especially like the complexes, as they're good for coordination and agility (both good for rugby, which is what we're actually training for). The book also comes with an easy-to-use training log.
2nd part is the workouts, 2-3 times a week. Eat big, rest big, get big. If you do this book, eat pretty decent and I would suggest creatine, you will get stronger and bigger. I promise, his will test u mentally and physically but it will all be worth if after 6 weeks of hell.
