The “Control” variation is recommended for most beginners and anyone seeking to make strength gains.


Recommended because:

  • 2x weekly benching
  • 2x weekly squatting
  • Plenty of exposure to accessory movements, especially in the “Hypertrophy” and “Control” variants

If you plan on running one of Jonnie’s programs, I highly recommend reading the free guides on his site.
