It's all from Eric Troy's "SDT" idea.

BV=base volume
NBV is not Eric's abbreviation, but mine for "new base volume"
SP=single progression
DP=double progression
TP=triple progression

The three types of progression are R=reps, S=sets, W=weight. V isn't Eric's either, but I guess I used it meaning "volume", when I probably should have used R.

I'll find a link and add it.

They do that. They are much harder than they look.

you are impressing me

How do you like the prioritizing of lifts ?

Here you are getitting records on multiple lifts. Do you see it as more of a psycological method... or do you think there is more carry over to seemingly unrelated exercises, so really, you aren't losing out much as one might think?

Please, carry on.


eTA: My question makes much less sence on paper. Fill in as you see fit

I think it's a good idea, the prioritizing. I'm not sure why I have made the gains across all 4 lifts. Maybe I'm not "deprioritizing" bench, squat and chins as much as I thought. Or maybe I should be surprised that I didn't make a bigger jump in DL. Except that DL for me had really ground to a halt, in terms of progress.

I don't think its psychological. At least, I came into max testing feeling pretty apprehensive, and not really well-prepared psychologically.

Also, I do think there is some carry-over between squat and DL.

I wonder if someone never bench pressed. Deadlifted for a year. What that would do to their bench press.

How much does the body jsut "grow all over" because it thinks "we've got work to do". Vs how much of it is specific to the task/load you are putting on it.

IIR rip speaks on this

There's the idea that GH and other related hormones stimulated by heavy compound lifting cause muscle growth in muscles not specifically trained. There's also the left-right thing, and I think that there is some empiric evidence for this, that training one side causes the other side to get stronger. That's probably neural.

What I'm saying is that I don't know, but it's not a ridiculous idea.

Not to discount the hormone thing but I think the tension caused by strenuous effort affects the whole body. Pavel calls this irradiation. That's why he likes the deadlift so much.

Deadlifts also strengthen the upper back. This could improve benching, by improving stability ... allowing a person to press more efficiently. The same would be true for rows, only more so.

Having a weak back can really hold back pressing in general, and predispose one to shoulder injuries. This is very common with gym rats only interested in beach muscle.
