About You

One last thing. I want to be clear that this isn’t, in my opinion, a good beginner routine. In fact, I think it's best used by advanced lifters meeting the following criteria:

  • You can consistently squat, bench press, and deadlift with near-perfect technique
  • You can bench press at least 1.5 times your bodyweight (or bodyweight if you’re female)
  • You can squat and deadlift at least 1.5 times your bodyweight for a set of ten (again, simply bodyweight for females)
  • You have the discipline to stick to a program

If you don’t already fulfill all those criteria, I suggest checking out Unf*ck Your Program instead, which will work for any strength level.
