Im just about to finish my second 2 week cycle of EDT, and am thinking of going to PTP for a month or so.
Ive done quite a bit of research, but cant find a clear writeup of how the plan works. I have a few questions.
- I believe pavel states to use deadlifts and an abdominal exercise (either side bends or something else).
Im assuming i could use different exercises though, I was thinking front squat, and bench press. Would this be feasable?
- Also, im not to clear on how the program works.
I think its 5 days a week, same two exercises each day. Something like two sets of 5 each day.
Is this correct? And do i use the same weight for the two sets, and when do I progress?
- Lastly, what do you guys think about slightly varying the intensity/volume throughout the week.
I was thinking something like this
Monday 2x5 (2 sets of 5)
Wednesday 5x2 (5 sets of 2)
Friday 2x5 (2 sets of 5)
Any recomendations? My main goals are to increase my strength/skill in these two lifts.
I'll probably do two weeks with these two lifts, and then two weeks with deadlift, or rack pulls, and some form of abdominal exercise, and then back to EDT.
