    Default How to measure progress?

    I am new to the PTP and KB approach. I have all the PTP and KB materials and plan to begin using both. My question is: what is a valid measure of progress? I'm interested in being able to do 2-3 tests periodically to assess whether I'm gaining strength or not. A 'before and after' type measurement. Anyone have any help to offer?

    Thank you in advance. Mike

    With PTP, keep a detailed journal. He reccomends three different ways to increase weight over time. here is one method I liked. Lets say you do the bent press 3 days a week and you start the program and find your 3RM is lets say 105 Lbs (strictly hypothetical). So you start after a five day break and use say 65 lbs for five, then 55 lbs for five. Add five lbs to each set for the next six workouts (two weeks). So your are then up to 95 and 85. Then the next workout drop back 10-15 lbs (80/70), so you will have a couple of easy workouts again. add five lbs each workout for the next six workouts. and so and so. Gradually, you are increasing the weight lifted, letting the body adjust or adapt slowly (makes sense, eh ?) Thats why typical Bodybuilding programs are garbage IMO. Test for a three rep max every eight to ten weeks and rest 4-6 days after. Do remember to use all the principles outlined in Pavels book (hyper irradiation, karate breathing, picnh ass cheeks, etc).
