  1. I think the advanced section of PP was written by Pendlay in fact. That’s kind of broad but so was your question. Hope I wasn’t too long winded.

  2. The programs themselves are totally secondary, not only because there are so many ways to do it, but the role of knowing your CNS and backing off is so important. Everything is built off this essential point.

    Have you read Mark Rippetoe's Practical Programming (PP)? I remember you saying you were well read, it’s a good book because it offers a perspective without veering off track. It follows suit with Pavel's writing and philosophy and is a nice transitional text for other advanced texts like The Science and Practice of Strength Training, etc…

    Part IV coming
  3. Training is about listening to my CNS (nervous energy) while fixing damage left from the past. For instance, I've been doing the Snatch Balance for about a year, slowly heading toward full OL integration. Every time I try a new exercise I spend months at a time ridding of trigger points from various parts of the body. This is from the “to failure training”.

    I biggest thing I've learned thus far and I think the biggest mistake people make is that it isn’t the programs themselves that make you better, it’s the listening and learning of your body/CNS during load/deload cycles, and the impact of the amount of food you have to eat when you’re trying to add lbs on the bar.

    Standby for III
  4. Hi there,
    I saw your post on Pendlay Forums since I've been lurking there for a while. I haven’t set up a username and password, but they don’t get a lot of traffic on the site. The reason I say this is because you caught me in the middle of a transitional period, I've got Tommy Kono's book in my bag and I’ve been shopping for bumpers and plywood for flooring.

    I’m not a good model to go by. I spent my entire adolescents and adulthood up to about 5 years ago training to failure. I come from a Hardgainer and HIT background, so now with getting older (age 41), training means more to my health than it did in the past.

    Look for part II...this program can't take my long winded post
  5. Hey Jethro,
    thanks again for your response to my thread. Just wondered if you wouldn't mind sharing with me what your training looks like these days...out of sheer academic interest. How has your training evolved as you've become more advanced?
