Thanks for the link. It's good to have something to measure against.

So I've had questions about weight training and programs and I think many people like to do different things, that's fine. What ultimately matters is results. If you're building strength and making progress, you're probably on a good program. I find the tables below to be a decent barometer. Thought I'd share ...
