    Default Another RoP + Fighter Pullps thread.

    Hey Comrades! I'm getting back into a kb pressing mood, so I thought that I'd redo the RoP with the 24kg. This time, though, due to time constraints, I thought that I would try the Fighter Pullup Program as a "warm up" before the press ladders. Has anyone had success with this setup?

    I do FPP intermingled with the ROP C&P ladders. I also do ladders of weighted pull-ups intermingled with the C&P for 2 week blocks. If you did all your FPP sets before your ROP ladders, your lats might be tired out and not ready to brace your upper body & shoulders the way you would typically expect. I'm sure others will have good ideas on this too.

    I do worry about the lats tiring, but I hope that I can build enough endurance to handle the work. I like your practice of cycling body weight and weighted pullups. I'll likely do the same once pullups plateau.

    Just google "Fighter Pullup program pdf" and you'll find it. It was designed by Pavel but I'm not really sure if it's free (it looks that way though, it's all over the internet).

    One of the things I found interesting was how Pavel's suggestions to increase the drops in reps from set to set coincided with Kenneth Jay's recommendation regarding Fatigue Index. When I actually started getting into the 12~13RM range, it of course validated their assertions that one couldn't simply reverse pyramid by 1 rep each set in that range. Also, when one gets into the higher reps, it doesn't hurt to back off to 4 workouts per week.

    Why not just follow ETK's recommendation and superset pullups w/ your presses?

    Steve makes a good point, if one is not specifically trying to up the max number of reps one can do, just doing ladders of pull-ups as stated in ETK works.

    I have been super setting ROP and FPP, so alternating sets of presses and pulls. I have been using the 3RM programme and have added weight rather than reps. Currently training with 12kg and have had great gains

    Rites of Passage IS press + pull up IMO in Pavel's classic "pull and a press" fashion.

    At our place if you don't complete the rungs with a 24kg + pull ups in under an hour you're not "finished" or ready for more serious training such as RKC prep.
