Before I dive in to this 'workout' and 'philosophy', let me make one thing clear - If you're a male and workout for any other reason than becoming bigger (in terms of muscle), faster and stronger, then you are doing a disservice to the male populace and should castrate yourself now. I'll wait.
I won't link directly to the sites I mention in these posts, as I don't want to be directly responsible for any traffic they get. That said, you can use the googles if so desired.
Let's start the parade of bullshit:
'The Abercrombie Workout' is a spam site pushing something called 'Visual Impact Muscle Building' - An approach to bodybuilding that guarantees you will forever be a weak, skinny douche with toothpick legs.

Are You A Victim Of Squats, Dead Lifts, And The Bench Press??
(This is the kind of body that the “Big 3″ lifts will create. You do NOT want this. Round and puffy muscles with a thick midsection doesn't cut it for Abercrombie models)
1) Squats- Do a great job of adding a lot of mass to your thighs and butt. You do NOT want this! Abercrombie models don’t have huge butts or thighs because it will ruin their look. They also won’t be able to fit into stylish pants.The argument against squats here boils down to this: Skinny Jeans. If you're overly concerned with wearing the same jeans as your little sister you might want to consider gender reassignment surgery. Unless you're a hipster, then you might want to consider suicide, instead. Squats, without argument, are one of the best exercises you can do for total body strength (tied with the deadlift, of course.)
Doing squats with significant volume and weight WILL lead to huge legs, but for the overwhelming majority of people, this will never be an issue, so squat away and enjoy being a much stronger human being. Here's a picture of a guy who honestly thinks his legs are too big:
|Seriously, look at those tree trunks.|
2) Dead Lifts- This lift also does an incredible job of adding mass to the midsection, thighs, and butt. Adding mass to your midsection will ruin the natural “V” in your upper body. Take a moment and study their physique. They all have nice wide shoulder that tapers down to a small and lean waist.
|Those chicks should put shirts on.|
|Yup, no "V" taper in his upper body at all.|
3) Traditional Bench Press: I am still a huge fan of the bench press, just not the flat bench or decline bench. These lifts focus way too much on lower pec development. You don’t want your pecs to resemble that of woman’s breasts. This is why I only recommend doing chest exercises in an inclined fashion. You want masculine square pecs. A line that goes all the way up to the collar bone is very desirable. Upper pec development will give you that angular looking chest that women love.
|Yeah, not at all what women want.|
4) Bonus: It is also a good ideal to stray away from shrugs and upright rows. Abercrombie and Fitch models have wide and ripped shoulders. Adding mass in traps will take away from your sharp, angular, wide shoulders. This is extremely important for you as well as models to sport fashionable clothes.

The 90's brought us further emasculation through the rise of, you guessed it, "Abercrombie & Fitch". A&F as we now it was shat onto the world in the early 90's when the company went through a 'rebranding' from a sporting goods retailer to a reasonably affordable 'fashionable' clothing. Here's the result:
