Baker, thanks for the putting forth the initiative to find that out, appreciate it. 1 day per week for each lift, if I'm reading that right you would only be lifting 3 times a week, bench one day, squat one day, deadlift the other day? That seems like such a low overall volume. Anyway I realize that was just a guess, I'm looking forward to seeing what Reifkind says.
Very True. The Dynamic tension day had not been clearly defined yet, but was deemed necessary. Therefore, try and throw it or something of the nature in. Benching/squat/dead once a week each works if a)your a rank beginner and anything will work or b) your really advanced and strong and need that much time to recover or c) peaking. The DL is a little different, being the point of the thread...

ZKP: the DL is certainly a different beast, louie & dave have been in favor of singles for some time with those. brad gillingham has said that 5x5 squats help his deadlifts more than anything (if i remember correctly), and he pulls singles every week, alternating from the floor & the rack. bill starr wrote an article waaaay back about how he didn't do any deadlifts before he pulled 666 at 198 in 1968. He did power cleans, high pulls, power shrugs & good mornings....& of course squats.
Thanks Baker, thats really interesting. I suspect benching/squatting/deadlifting once a week in that system is set up that way because the guys using it are pretty damn strong and need that much time to recover, as ZKP said. Like the guys said on the dragondoor thread, those older articles are an absolute gold mine. Good stuff, thanks for offering that kind of info over here.
