Wanting to DTP
25 y/o male, 5'11.5, 210 lbs
Squat: 95-220 (two form resets)
Deadlift: 115-235 (one form reset)
PC: 75 (just starting doing them)
I have been doing a linear progression from the book FIT. I squat twice a week (M and F), deadlift and power clean on Wendesday, alternate bench and press, and do chins on Monday. Through the advice of the SS forum, I should start DTP. If I am conditioned/accustomed to squatting twice a week, I am concerned about the extra fatigue of that extra squatting workout. Would it be wise to back off a little on my squat weight and ramp back up on a 3 day squat week? Also, would it be wise to do the same on deadlifts, as I would be doing them more often?
I wouldn't back off unless your training forces you to do so.
How much conditioning are you doing?
I'm not doing any conditioning. I would like to start doing some conditioning because of the extra fat gain, but everytime I try to do a litte, I get stuck on my weights.
Ok. I have not read FIT but was under the impression that most of the routines included alot of conditioning. My mistake.
