    Default Straight line periodization, one lift per week

    Iíve been reading more of Marty Gallagherís work after listening to the interviews rip did with him and am a little confused by some of his training logic. I understand the need for a novice to squat three times a week, and do the other lifts multiple times a week, and have had very good success myself using an hlm template that had me doing each lift three times a week, but I am curious how Martyís program provides enough stress for adaptation with only one top set and doing each lift once a week?

    Is it because those guys were so strong that the weight they were moving provided enough stress in itself? I am sure part of it also was because the weight was so heavy that any more work would prevent recovery as well, but I am curious if anyone has used this type of program and who it would be appropriate for.

    Marty wasn't recommending this for novices.

    Right, and I remember you two agreeing at one point that certain trainees, particularly novices can and should squat three times a week. I now see a very similar program is included in ppfst pg. 191 In the advanced chapter, as the classic powerlifting taper. Before seeing that I was just wondering the advantages of something like the Texas method, which is brutal and time consuming, compared to what I was reading from Marty. Iím assuming the Texas method will work better while it is still possible, and there will be a point where the stress is too high and a trainee has to go to a more advanced trainee program.
