We’ve been making an awful lot of references to our gym’s strength bias in programming, and to our unwavering dedication to form and technique. During recent posts, we’ve specifically mentioned the 603 PTP program several times. For those of you who weren’t following our strength & conditioning stuff, our facility (formerly called C******* 603) programmed a five week “Power to the People” style cycle, focusing on deadlifts and presses. The program was designed to do one thing – make you stronger. We ran the original PTP program in July 2009, but we continue to receive a ton of requests for details – program theory, the specific workouts as written and weight and scaling recommendations.
The program can still be found in full on our web site, but we thought we’d make it even easier for you to follow along. As such, you can find a link to the entire five week program on this “hidden” page on the Whole9 site. Our PTP program is outlined in full, including Dallas’ instructions, commentary at transitional points, buy-ins and cash-outs and “extra” workouts programmed amongst the deadlifts and presses.
Enter all your program-related comments, questions and feedback here on this post. We’ll keep it monitored, and help you through your PTP cycle as best as we can. Feel free to post your results here too – we love to hear about strength gains and how they translate to all kinds of different areas of fitness. (Like, getting better at deadlifts will help you jump higher. True story.) Happy heavy stuff!
