I'm constructing a prilepin's chart for static hold times

Robb's template is fine. I still like full body much better especially in the novice/intermediate strength range where most people are though because you get more practice with the skills you want to work. Splitting up into push/pull or upper/loewr or whatever else is OK if you're advanced intermediate or beyond where you need more volume to stress adaptations, but it's more inoptimal in the fact that you don't get a lot of practice with the stuff you want to obtain. The more frequent you do something you want to obtain the faster you get it... full body allows more frequency with that as opposed to going to split programs

I don't want to be a doubter but I highly doubt you can do high quality straddle planche pushups. If you can you should be able to hold a full planche which I don't think is the case.

Regardless, I'm going to try to churn out more content for the book this weekend I guess.... we'll see.
