well in his book power to the people he says the Deadlift isthe most important exercise
but he also recomends a press of some type due to the Deadlift not working pressing muscles
I PERSONALLY also like to add in other lifts
but if you just do Deadlifts and FLat Bench or OH Press you can do pretty well like that
before i went to the gym and only had a barbell i used to do these two excersises, and it got me a pretty good base. maybe people really dont need 990excersises per workout and only 2 will work. il read into it more, mabe give it a try.
i dont think i could handel deadlifts 5 times a week though.
yeah, not sure where he says do em 5x per week. I do know that he likes hi frequency...BUT part of that formula is also that the volume is LOW and you are not going to be going to failure
u have the 3 factors--frequency, intensity, volume. Different programs use those 3 in different ways
HIT= high intensity, low vol, low freq
Sheiko=high volume, medium to high frequency, low to med intensity
Pavels stuff is usually= high freq, low volume, low to medium intensity
the 5x a week deadlift, its in a article i read ages ago, well i think it was him, or it was something to do with russians and their soviet science stuff, their idea of practise makes perfect. which in one way i guess is true, but i bet it would overtrain a person pretty quickly if they were to ego hungry.
high intensity training, thats a decent way to train, well for strength anyway i found, doesnt take long before it takes motivation out of you though as it drains you.
