Improved Consolidation Routine

Who has honestly been following the new improved Consolidation Routine (a.k.a. the ′Athlete′s Routine′) for at least 6 months – including inserting rest days and increasing calorie-intake as one progresses – and got the incredible results Mike stated are possible?

Fot those who don′t know what I′m talking about, this is the aforementioned routine:

Workout A:

1. Squats: 8-15 reps.

2. Close-Grip, Palms-Up Pulldowns: 6-10 reps.

4-7 days later do:

Workout B:

1. Deadlifts: 5-8 reps.

2. Dips: 6-10 reps.

4-7 days later repeat Workout A.

Thanks in advance!

Hey BW

I followed that routine for about 6 weeks a while ago, but I was cutting at the time and it worked well. I lost 1 inch off my waist and my measurements dropped only marginally.

I am about to embark on another version:

Leg Press: 8-15 reps

Close-Grip, Palms-Up Pulldowns: 6-10 reps

Close-grip Bench Press: 6-10 reps

7 days later do:

Barbell Hack Squat: 5-8 reps

High Pull: 6-10 reps

Seated Calf Raise: 8-15 reps

Ive found even with that rountine its to much for me!!

Im down to one set per week!

Ive also found im making better gains doing my reps fast as possible but still in control.

But ive never got the amazing gains mike have spoken about!!

By the way, I was wondering…

If Mike said that the Consolidation Routine is perfect for the rank beginner with low tolerance for high-intensity training stress AND for the very advanced bodybuilder, than WHY even bother with the Ideal Routine?
