Russian Strength Skill Question


#1

Hello Christian,

First of all, i want you to know i appreciate a lot the work you put in for us.

I have a question about the RSS program you posted.

Exemple Week:
Group 1
Group 2
off
Group 1
Group 2
Labour day

Will the order of the exercises change?
So for example in group 1 i have squats & deadlift, would i train on Monday Squat 5x1 @ 85% and Deadlift 1x3 @ 75% + squat partial movement and then on Thursday would i do Deadlift 5x1 @85 and squat 1x3 @ 75% + deadlift partial movement?

I tried searching but i could not find the answer.

Thank you in advance.

I had more or less the same question here: http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_body_training_performance_bodybuilding_thibaudeau/russian_skills_training

I am not Coach T but I interpret the workout routine as the following.

With your example of squat + deadlift:
Workout 1
1 squat at 85%, rest 30 sec, repeat 4 more times
Then 3 squat at 75%
1 deadlift at 85%, rest 30 sec, repeat 4 more times
Then 3 deadlift at 75%

Hope I am right and hope this helps.
