Just wanted to know if anyone has done it or is doing it and how they are finding it.
I didn't do his exact program, but I did do the time under tension that he preaches so much and also applying intention on certain lifts.
I did it for about a month but didn't notice any strength gains at all. Muscles were completely sore the days after the workout though. However I didn't really like lifting in that 4 second negative 1 second positive style. It burnt and hurt so much during the workout that it made me NOT look forward to going to the gym.
Just wanted to get opinions on whether people though 'time under tension' would make a whole lot of difference regarding hypertrophy compared to the regular 6 - 12 rep range for hypertrophy.

funny... see here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=162639751
personally i can't recommend anyone to do this routine. I did 2 weeks, i'll consider it a de-load and move on. too much volume, too much machines, too much BS.. instructional videos are a must watch for beginners to advanced.

My best friend is actually doing this right now. Kinda funny watching him lift, it's like hes moving in slow motion. He's doing it on a cut though and is sad he's not seeing results so I tried to tell him he's not going to see much of anything unless he gives it a shot during a bulk but... he's enjoying it at least, his workouts are shorter than they used to be so he can fit in some extra cardio.
