I’ve been methos one of Bill Pearl’s Olympia routines religiously for about 18 months, with progressively more adaptation and improvisation. GSLP goes up bu 10 lbs per week. This is where your general all around strength is built.

Here you explain it more as methood full body movement, with each tier comprising either a pushing, pulling movement referring to point methodd you say workout A and B.

However, the benefit of GZCLP over other linear progression programs is the added volume per workout for each lift through AMRAP sets on the T1 lifts for the day, as well as the 10 rep sets when that movement becomes a T2 a few days later.
