Speaking of minimalistic programs …
CT, I know you usually do not comment on other coaches’ programs. But if you don’t mind me asking: what is your opinion on Pavel’s Power to the People routine which has people do only conventional deadlifts and an upper body pushing exercise five times a week?
I don’t hate it. Right now I’m only doing two strength exercises (push press and back squat) and I’m doing them 4x per week. I also have olympic lift days (olympic lift and complexes) twice a week.[/quote]
Thank you for your reply, CT.
Glad to hear you can squat again at high frequency. Hope your knee doesn’t hurt these days.
Do you still use the Dead-Squat bar or are the Olympic lifts (with a straight bar, obviously) higher on your lifts of priority at this point in time?
