Anyone have any problems with your tris because of all the pressing on Meltdown I? There are 6 pressing movements per week on this! Bench presses on days 1 and 3. Push-press and dips on days 2 and 4! I should have realized this before attempting, but the triceps (and shoulders for that matter) are getting hit HARD on back to back days, twice a week! Under the prescribed loading of using your 8-12RM, this is entirely too much on the tris and shoulders! Anyone else have trouble with this???
While I’m at it, I’ve also tried the EDT (Lose the Fat Keep the Strength; for Body Comp Breakthroughs) to no avail as well. Has anyone found this to be extremely taxing while on a calorically restricted diet??? The volume on this program is just rediculous. I’m all for keeping my strength up while cutting, but I would barely be able to get recovered on a bulking diet, let alone a cutting diet!
I know the problem is not with my diet as my calories and protein are on point, so that’s not the problem.
I’m just very disappointed in these programs as I have been following them verbatim and I would like to continue to trust Charles Staley. I’m all for trying new things and even training through soreness, but I’m finding that these program just aren’t designed very well.
