Didn't like this program at first but after a couple of weeks it really gets rolling. I hope bromley decides to make a part 2 so you can just bridge into that after you finish the first 12 weeks.

First four weeks have been a nice break from bench and deadlift. The leg days are some of the most brutal I’ve ever done, and with high rep RPE 10 sets you are bound to have wobbly legs after squat. Awesome stuff.

Incredible program. I used this as my "off season phase" / building phase coming off of a powerlifting meet. I really enjoyed the blend of intensity and hypertrophy. This really pushed my accessories and took me out of my comfort zone in all of the right ways. Between Bromley's videos and Mike Israetel's I feel like a have a form grip on hypertrophy through full range of motion and controlled tempo lifts. I will definitely be visiting this program again in December!

KONG is a 12-week program to build savage size, designed with 3 blocks of 4 week chunks. The three 4-week blocks are separated by exercise selection, exercise order, and set and rep progression.

Week 1-4: Volumizing

5-day bodybuilding split that hits each body part twice a week. You'll be hitting weak points first, like triceps before delts and chest.

This is a volumizing phase, which starts off with just a few sets per exercise with high reps in week 1, but steadily increasing load over the next 3 weeks. By the end of week 4, you'll be conditioned for high volume training.

Week 5-8: Pyramids

Now you'll reap the benefits of the high volume work from the previous block by focusing on compound lifts first before accessories.

The compounds will be underload variations (like close grip bench and stiff leg deadlifts), which forces you to use less weight than the competition variation. The disadvantaged positions force you to train weaknesses in your compounds.

The set and rep scheme is in a pyramid, which also forces you to use less weight by prioritizing volume and endurance work. This is a nasty muscle building combination.

Week 9-12: Reverse Pyramid

Now that you're primed from the underload variations, in this block you'll move to overload variations, which prioritizes weight.

In this phase you'll be doing the reverse pyramid set and rep scheme, which means prioritizing heavy weights for your first set, then lower load with high reps in later sets.

By the end of this program, you'll look like you can scale the Empire State Building.
