    na. Im not looking to add a lot of muscle- im never going to be a bodybuilder or a powerlifter so i might as well play to my strengths which are being quick and being able to keep on keepin on for days (thats what happens when you spend your youth doing cross country races instead of hitting up the spacies)

    Sounds like it's a power program- you're going to build up your absolute strength, but if you go back to 3x10 or 4 x 8 or whatever, you're going to feel like a total puss.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    It's also a good work out if you are actively working out in MT, as you don't want to be sore from that and then lift a lot of weights- it's over-training. If you want to be skinny and strong, there's always Crossfit.com- do those workouts everyday. With the stamina from cross country and the workouts there, you'd be a skinny fit freak. Good luck.

    Arthur Jones, fonder of Nautilus, wrote about maximum intensity / low set lifting in the 60’s-70’s. The idea was also adopted by Mike Mentzer who passed along to Dorian Yates… There’s a good deal of info out there from these three.
