Anabolic Review's anabolic workout
Does anybody use the training routine, or a similar one, that is described under the anabolic workout link from the AR homepage.
Is this a good program to be on all the time or just when cycling?
Do you really need a full day of rest after each workout, can you cardio on those days?
What do ya'll think about starting with a max weight and working your way down?
Thanks in advance for everyone who replies and please keep in mind that I am just asking for opinions.

What the heck is the purpose of only doing 185 for 2 reps, and 215 for 2 reps. That's more of a waste of time than anything.

its to get your muscles ready for the higher weight without wasting anything in a warm up session...obviously not a waste of time...

HEY DEVIL DITTY IS RIGHT AND SO IS RORO. YOU WANT TO DO LOW REPS SO YOU DONT BURN UP NEEDED ENERGY FOR HIGHER REPS. I USUALLY WARM UP LIKE THIS ON MY CHEST.
1- 135LBS 8 REPS (WIDE GRIP)
2- 185LBS 4 REPS (SHOULDER WIDTH)
3- (ONLY IF I NEED IT) 205LBS 2-3 REPS
THEN FROM THERE IT IS BALLS OUT
HERE IS MY CURRENT CHEST WORKOUT
1. FLAT BENCH (AFTER WARM UP) 2 SETS 6-8 (TAKE TO FAILURE
2. INCLINE (BARBELL OR ISOMACHINE) 2 SETS 6-8 (TAKE TO FAILURE)
3. DB FLAT BENCH 1 SET 8, 1 SET 4-8 (FAILURE
4. DB INCLINE BENCH (SAME AS FLAT)
5. FLYES OF CABLE CROSSOVERS 2 SETS 6-10 REPS
6. DIPS 2 SETS 8-10 (WEIGHTED)

KINGLYON, that sounds like a pretty demanding chest workout? Do you work until failure like that every week? Also, do you do that year round, during a cutting phase, or a bulking phase? Just Curious

I never tried this type of workout..I was firm beliver in inverted pyramides 15-12-10-8-6 but by the time I get to the last set I'm already to damn burned to lift any weight ( every set is to failure or 1-2 negatives) and I decided to try it today for the first time this is what it used to be in sqats : 15x 90lbs, 12x 180, 10x 270, 8x 360,and barely 2-3x 400 .
today :20x 90lbs, 3x 180, 2x 360, 8x 370, 6x 400, and never hit before 5x 420.....
and not even to start with the leg press,all the way up to 840lbs
That felt so damn good I had a buzz after each set :-)
Great thing...burns ,hurts, move some weight and it's quick...just perfect
