I thought that this souneded familiar...but I was wrong. There is an article in the January 1994 MILO that is "The Look of Power" by Anthony Ditillo. It's content is very different than the above. It looks like to could be "fun" in that odd way that the Hatch squat program is "fun". Eat and sleep would be key for my somewhat old ass with this program.

I tried the Wednesday workout today. My but was kicked. I didn't get the full reps on everything. Had to modify it a little bit, wow...

That's why I mentioned the bit about a good foundation before undertaking the program...

You probably did. How long did it end up taking you, what kind of rest periods were you taking?

Umm...once I got warmed up it probably took me about 1 1/2 hours. I had to vary the routine slightly due to gym constraints (only one platform) and fatigue. I think my rest periods were anywhere from 1-3 mins depending on the set I just performed and what was next.

I seen this workout post from GV before. It was part of a faq post on another forum (can't recall which).
I'm with you Dave. Gave the Mon. workout a shot the other day as well. Took me about the same amount of time. I eased into it though, using warmup loads to guage where the weights would be to fit the rep scheme. Tried to keep my rest periods at about 1-2 mins. Made sure my form didn't give out during the sets and if I felt I could go over the rep limit, I did. Long, tough workout but I thought it was pretty satisfying.
