I just started on the second phase of the current training programme and it does look promising. Personal favourites like iso holds (e.g. front lever, planche progressions and L-sits) and power movements (e.g. hang clean and press) have been re-introduced.
They're personal favourites because I've always great progress in terms of size and strength with these kinds of exercises despite the fact I'm not really good at them.
To be honest I was starting to feel a little jaded with the programmes I've been following since it has not resulted in the kind of size and strength gains I've been expecting.
I reviewed the programmes that gave me the best results and what I've discovered is that:
1. It always includes iso-holds
2. Always includes power movements
3. Includes various kinds of jumps (e.g. vertical, hurdle)
4. Knee-friendly exercises (read: little or no back squats)
I was actually planning to use a couple of the older programmes but then Phase 2 was introduced and since does have the characteristics of my past favourites I've decided to give it a chance. Hopefully I'll be able to see some much needed gains.
