I stumbled across this site today and was thinking about purchasing the program. It seems that there are 2 different programs. Any suggestions on which one?

Hey mate. If you're referring to OMOB or accelerate, either one is excellent. I have just completed 12 weeks of accelerate and got great results. I was running OMOB before acce relax and again after it and am loving that too...can't go wrong.
Does it hurt? Good. Get it done.

I went ahead and purchased OMOB deluxe last night. I started it this morning, I enjoyed the workout. Started with squats and I think I may have went a little light on my max squat guess, because I have only been back traing 3 months after my shoulder surgery. I probably shouldn't have done it so close to breakfast, the 6 200m sprints had my eggs in my throat. I added 3 sets of max strict pull ups after the EMOM. Is it ok to add a bit in ? Like for deadlift day I am gonna add some curls.

I would recommend it. The value for 40 dollars is pretty good. And pay once and any updates Jerred puts out you will get. I actually bought it back this winter but haven't done the program very much and still think it was worth the money. I am starting it up again since the new update came out. 

 

He has a good system, that you can start you off even if you have been sitting on the couch for the last 3 months, and is always there to ask questions.

Welcome Magic,

 

As others have said you won't be disappointed with OMOB, it's a good program and Jerred is spot on.  Plus he's more accessable then Wendler aalthough I do really like Jim's stuff and attitude.  As a bonus, you get this site - on it you'll find all kinds of folks at various stages using the same methods.  Really helps when you have questions or hit walls.

 

Accessory work is good provided you can handle it.  If you're new to lifting, there's no need.  Hit your big lifts, work your form and mobility, rinse repeat.  If you're getting into the "advanced" stages of lifting - ie been hitting for quite awhile and you're needing more to keep your lifts moving north, then by all means add them in.  It will also depend on your goals and time available- what are you trying to accomplish?
