    I guess that I'm not quite an average person then. There's no way that I could do squats the day after doing deads. Well, maybe with an empty bar.

    Read the first line over...."ronnie colemans ultimate mass program"....do you consider Ronnie an average person? in other words YES its a pretty intense routine and not for beginners.

    I would do all these days in 1, not spread out over 6.

    Actually, to be quite honest with you, I think this is one of the worst workouts I have ever seen. I sincerely hope Ronnie Coleman doesn't actually do this routine. I would be willing to be that a ghostwriter made this all up, which is usually what happens.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    Lesson One: Never get your routines from any Weider magazine.

    Lesson Two: Never try and follow a routine that a juiced up pro follows.

    First off, the guy's on steroids.There's no way in hell any natural human being would be able to perform of these workouts. Second, I am sure ronnie himself does not perform these workouts.Some stupid writer for Flex probably made up a workout that would sound good to the common reader.way overtraining 6 days in a row I mean come on
    Chuck Norris once lost his keys and couldn't remember where he put them. So he tortured himself for half an hour until he gave up their location.

    If stick a gallon of gear in your ass every day then yes, this workout is appropriate.
    Lift hard, or go home!

    everything man, they are misleading you and are only concerned about getting your dough bro. They say that Ronnie coleman does this and that and you should too, give me a break. first of all it is a ghost writer penning that shit down and even if it way RC, the average lifter can't handle a MR O routine to begin with. they give the impression that you can do this certain thing and buy their supp and you can achieve thing that are not realistically possible, would you want to trust people like that. There are so many other sources that are3 much more trustworthy and reliable to gain useful info from, trust me. Forget those mainstream magazines, I wouldn't even wipe my ass with that shit

    I see your point, and youre right. However my first training book was a Weider,and I used it to learn proper lift tech., proper set rep,fast twitch slow twitch,negatives, pyramids ect...I probably wouldnt be lifting today if it werent for his book(I think it was called" Joe weiders training encyclopedia" or some shit like that)As far as the main stream mag's, The pictures are pretty.Hee Hee

    their info is very very basic for sure so for a beginner it may serve some purpose, it can just be very misleading, the pics are abotu all it has going for it alright
