How would you guys program this for long-term? Would you just run it as is for 8-12 weeks? Would you increase/decrease reps/sets? The push-pull split is something I’ve never done and am wanting to try this program, but I want to make sure I’m doing things right with it as well. I’m currently in the weight room for 4-5 days a week separated by body parts (chest-tris, back-bis, shouders-traps, abs-met con), which has been my only real way of training since I started a few years back.
I just finished writing an article detailing progression, it should be up shortly.
In the periodized plan there are four three weeks phases. Each phase use more demanding methods. After 4 phases you deload by doing something completely different for 1-2 weeks (conditioning, explosive work, playing sports, etc.). Then starting a new 12 weeks cycle.
Thanks for the quick response. I’ll be sure to check out that article.
I haven’t seen the new article on here. Is it up yet?
No It hasn’t been released.
What’s the deal with this? Any news on the new article?
Coach T any updates on this? currently running the program approaching week 3 phase 1. i would love to include conditioning so i hope this article is somewhere up there already but i could not find it.
haven’t written the article. Maybe in the future.
Has this article happened yet?
Ive seen this before, but this is geard more towards strength than mass, isnt that different than the best damn workout?
I have read through these 2 workouts which are based on high frequency but very low volume. Can the volume in these workouts be increased a bit if taking something like Plazma pre/during the workout?
The low volume aspect is a non-negotiable part of a high frequency plan such as these. If it’s more volume you crave, simply find a plan that has the volume-to-frequency ratio that suits your goals.
That said, I believe CT has said these workouts can be done 5 or even 4 days a week, in which case I imagine each workout could see a creep up in volume.
But don’t fall into the trap of taking a perfectly effective program, and thinking “This is great, but would be better if I added X, Y, and Z to it.”
