    Default Pull to push ratio?

    Dan John has written that he likes to see as many pulling reps as pushing and I have a couple questions about it.

    Would "big pulls" such as deadlifts count like in the Power to the People program which has deadlifts and a press?

    Also, what if the difficulty of the exercises are different? Say you're doing pull ups and pushups and you can do twice as many pushups as pull ups? The amount of effort devoted to each exercise would be similar but with fewer reps in the pullups.

    Or am I just over thinking things?

    Pttp is a pull-push program. I would not be so concerned about rep numbers. Just EFFORT. You can always do different variants (progressions) of pull ups and push ups to customize your programming. I think you are over thinking just a little bit...Dennis
