Default Muscle and Strength Pyramids: Second Edition

I received my free copy and started to dig in, but didn't get very far.

Helms does a brief summary of what's been updated, but apparently there's a whopping 50% more content. I was hoping to just skim through and read what was updated, but I'm going to apparently have to read both books again.

Anyone read the updated versions yet?

There's a section at the beginning that goes over "what's changed" and "what's added." You may have already seen that. I read over what I found interesting in those sections since I had previously read them all the way through when they first came out. Overall I think there were some pretty solid additions.

I still feel like if all you did was read Lyle's website/books and then also had these books, you'd be pretty much set.

Things not added:

Brad's dumb 45 set/week study because Eric knew it was garbage despite feeling he needed to defend it to stay in Brad's good graces.

I think 10 to 20 sets a week is recommended going by Andy's new article. Haven't read the 2nd edition yet

That's what is in the second edition apparently

Again, shocking

Helms goes to lengths to defend Brad's study
Ignores it in his recommendations

Reading it now that's exactly what it is mostly work in the moderate rep range and a couple sets each in the low rep and high rep range. The number 45 has yet to be seen. I dont have the book handy but there was an old bodybuilding book by chris aceto from the mid 90s maybe that prescribed a bulk of the work in 6 to 12 and rest maybe higher. Dont remember details of set counts however. The same section mentions there are studies were lower to moderate volume performed ultra high volume routines. Mmmk

Lyle, what do you think of his advanced bodybuilding routine in his book? It hits EVERYTHING with 16-20 sets a week, not just a few specialized body parts. It's a 6 day Upper/Lower with a 3x frequency per muscle. Too much? Crazy? What do you think of the routine?
