    Pavel Tsatsouline GTG weight training program?

    Anyone know if the GTG principle could be effective with weight training? Or even a full body weight training routine?

    That's his intention, although normally recommended for use on a single lift (at most 2) within an existing structured weights program
    If you are interested in that you should consider reading his book "Power to the People", if nothing else it may be an entertaining read

    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
    Diet restarted, target 69.x Kg, progress poor so far :(

    only to a point, is the eccentric part of most weightlifting movements will impact recovery much more adversely.

    If you're going to do Pttp then don't and do the Bulgarian Method instead. Much faster progress. This is assuming you know what you're doing enough to not hurt yourself. That said, Pttp isn't a bad read.

    bulgarian method works for olympic weightlifters with a elite level of strength already working up to a few heavy singles and resting when not working out. Ordinary people wont see the same results.

    They'll see great results if they know how to use solid form, and they know how to hit a gym max as opposed to a grinding all out max. That said, it's obviously not a bodybuilding program. It's a program that will have you squatting heavier, pressing heavier, and you can build your deadlift too from the increased squatting strength. Hypertrophy is more of a side effect as heavier weights are the goal. Since OP is bringing up gtg, he's not looking for a bodybuilding program.

    You're right, it will require a certain amount of rest.

    In fact, I would say that it's harder for elite Olympic weightlifters. They are using weights heavy enough that it's truly hard to recover from.
