My question is essentially, how many workouts are there in a cycle. I have been operating under the assumption that a cycle is 3 weeks so there are 9 workouts, but there are some posts on this forum that are saying otherwise.

This post linked above is saying a cycle is 2 weeks. This means that there would be 6 workouts in a cycle.

Whereas this post is saying that a cycle is actually 6 weeks long, resulting in 18 workouts per cycle.

Which interpretation is correct?

Edit: I believe the strength and conditioning template follows the same format (AB workouts, 3 times a week). So if you ran that before, I’d appreciate your input.
