I assume "low intensity" means more 50-60% 1RM effort with explosiveness in mind? Either way....eat alot!!!

Hey Mike, that was on the original texas method that i copy and pasted. I will be going heavy. Eat a lot hey, thanks.

Very doable if the diet is solid.

What's the low volume low intensity day all about? Basically an easy day?

I got rid of those comments, they were on the original template. I will be going heavy every session. I will look at 3 weeks then take a week off or just go light. Then re-evaluate it.

Thanks for the comments.
