    Hey Joe, I’ve gone through about five different programs now choosing a different one each time and I’ve absolutely love them! I did the PPL and this time going back to the PPL 2.0 but noticed the RIR is 2-3 for phase 1. I understand this is to get use to the movements and dial in the form. I typically don’t ever “feel” the need for a deload week and if I ever feel beat up then I just add a rest day.

    My question is when starting a new 12/6week program I feel like I am “wasting” those weeks where I am not training to failure. I have spent some time trying to learn where my true failure point is when it comes to producing force on certain exercises but am curious if spending 3-4 weeks in a 2-3 RIR is going to allow me to put tissue on as fast? Or is it more about preventing injury to allow the body to adapt?

    Thank you for all you and your team do!

    Hi Jonathan – I’ll chim in here, only because I’ve seen Joe respond to this question before. The first phase is generally to allow the trainee to get used to the movements. For advanced lifters, that are comfortable with the movements, there’s nothing wrong with starting at phase 2.

    Personally, I always do one week of phase 1 as a deload. In my experience, even when I don’t think I need a deload, I generally feel much better (mentally and physically) after the deload.
