When one gets advanced enough, week-to-week progress comes to a halt. Usually a trainee is advised to go to month to month like advanced 5x5 Madcow2. Personally, I think that’s too large of a jump. What if you can still progress every 9 days? Or 14 days? I’d like to reap those benefits before having to move to monthly progress. Anyway, which of the options do you think happens in a week-to-week progression such as the Texas Method:
1.) Does the volume period become too stressful to recover from in a 7 day period?
2.) Or do you think the volume period is not enough of a stimulus anymore to disrupt homeostasis?
The solution to 1.) being either reduction of volume or increase in recovery period.
The solution to 2.) being a longer volume period which may or may not also require a longer recovery period.
