I thought this was worth discussing as I've been working on a similar setup and program for the past 2 years myself.
Basically, Ben is a big strong dude—but he has weaknesses just like every other BBer. So what he's done is mixed some training philosophies as a way to reap the benefits. We know that heavy progressive overload works well. We also know that sarcoplasmic pump training works well too. So how can we build both into 1 training program?
Ben has taken some of Dante's base principles as well as John's and made a hybrid mix. Looks interesting.
BOTH Ben and I have the same weaknesses and its probably from my PLing background too lol
Barrel chest and large back, but shoulders and arms lag behind. Loading the side delts and biceps don't work at all for me. I do have some success with loading my Tris though. But as a way to give some new stimulus, I've hit them completely differently than I train any other part of my body. Hard pump stuff, short rest period, more volume.
I don't follow this exact program (mine is more of a hybrid of Jordan Peter's + some of JM's stuff) but it's definitely worth a watch. I trust Ben's brain, very smart dude.
