I am constantly amazed at how confusing this is. I think I have it nailed down, then I read someone's paragraph and get confused again.

Any idea, Blair, when coach's next book is coming out? I've heard rumors that it is going to make lots of things clear to the layperson.

it's all just guidelines, nothing to get too confused over. basic idea is that if you're seeing progress, keep doing what you're doing. if not, then maybe you should try following somebody else's recommendations until it clicks.

I'm writing up some programming stuff too.

It's really not hard.... like Grissim said. Progress is generally what you're aiming for.

Thanks Steve and Grissim. I think I am making progress, but when trying to hold my program changes to less than once every six weeks on the holds, it's hard to know if you are getting steady progress.

I am looking forward to your programming Steven, I'll keep an eye out for it.

As for Coach Sommer's book, there are no deadlines. It's like any video game, it'll be out when it's out or done. It's been said not to ask or just to stop asking.

The whole reason for the long cycle is overload,load,underload when using the StaticStateCycle. It's trying to not just end up crashing and burning and it's more about developing connective tissue strength than just the muscle.
