Where do you see me ask him to write a second line?
Also I don’t know about you, but concluding that a program is not for OP solely based on 3 questions that he asked is a ridiculous leap…
I understand he wrote the book, but all he’s doing is appealing to his authority, which is still a fallacy. Now I’m not saying he’s wrong, but he certainly hasn’t provided sufficient evidence to support his claim.
"An Appeal to Authority is a fallacy with the following form:
Person A is (claimed to be) an authority on subject S.
Person A makes claim C about subject S.
Therefore, C is true."[/quote]
You understand he wrote the book, but do you really understand the program?
One of the four principals is slow progression, and you seem to be quite ancy. You’re placing too much value in the training max, when it is as stated above; a tool. TM =/= strength! Taking your TM down isn’t surrendering your hard earned work, it’s allowing you to recover, set rep PRs, perfect your form, and get a running start into progressively higher weights.
