Day 21, no other program at present due to being knee deep in revision. Really enjoying things, very little in the way of soreness… I absolutely love its flexibility. Some days I’ll do straight sets or circuits if I’m feeling particularly fresh… other days when I feel like death I’ll spread things out a little.
Very tempted to look towards tweaking this to form something that I could use long term for a fairly complete workout. I aim to be getting back into parkour/gymnastics and eventually some MMA. The flexibility of something like this would be very appealing…
Maybe even an ABABABX type weekly split:
Horizontal pressing - pushup variations, dips
Horizontal pulling - front level pullup progression, fat man rows
Quad dominant - BSS, lunge variations, pistols and other one legged squats
Vertical pressing - handstand pushup progressions.
Vertical pulling - pullup/chinup movements
PC dominant - glute bridge variations, GHR (band assisted?), etc.
Throw in some metabolic work… skipping/running… maybe some abs… and good to go!

I like it, Ben. You and I are on the same page. I’ve also constructed my own PLP v.2.0, which will begin in 3-wks after the completion of PLP v.1.0.
50 reps/day stays constant, no rep progression. Instead, load progression per rep on the pullups and lunges.
PULLUPS & LUNGES: 50-total reps
Day 1, 10-reps, +10 lbs. +20 lbs. for lunges
Day 2, 11-reps, " "
Day 3, 12-reps, " "
Day 41 will complete the process with all 50-reps performed with the additional 10-lbs. for pullups, and additional 20-lbs. for lunges. Pushups stay the same, as simple supplemental work.
Also, b/c I’ve fallen in love with training every day, my primary program will consist of this light, perfect form, “crush it” warmup/practice session.
Following this, select 1-2 movements, and ramp up to one heavy set of 3. My thought process is that my CNS will be exposed to every movement pattern that is important to me, EVERY DAY.
Heavy DL’s, and Hip thrusts will be performed once every 2-weeks on a “wildcard day”.[/quote]
Tempted to take PLP to something crazy like 100 reps a day to see what happens.
Love your ideas though! However I feel it’s moving away from the simplicity of the program… My idea too!
