Near the end of the sequence, heavy press days can take a long time. However, that's not the norm throughout the progression. Some factors that make it more workable without a long dedicated block of time (including a lot of points made by previous posters):RoP is awesome but with a 15 month old I don't have 1.5 hours to work out.
I don't do a ton of rest between rungs either; for the lighter days I barely rest between rungs and on heavier days I just give it a minute until my muscles are calmer. I figure if I hit a point where I'm not resting enough between rungs then I will extend it.Wow. Really that long between rungs eh? I was always under the impression that the "rest" periods were while the other arm was working. I would take 5-6 minutes between sets of ladders, but nowhere near the between-rung rest you guys did. This could actually be a huge reason I had to stop ROP as I felt I was just getting beat up with the 20kg.
How long does a full session take of five rungs, 90 minutes?
Nah. I just want strength. I'm just wanting to add strength. I'm 105 kg as is.

Just to make it clear - I did not ever participate in any of the experimental programs of SF.Ladies and Gentlemen,
I removed a post here because it contained proprietary information from one of our experimental protocols.
While we do not want that information posted publicly now, we do want everyone to be aware that you can apply to participate in the testing process by contacting Craig Marker, @CMarker, here on the forum via private message or by any other means, e.g., emailing him at StrongFirst. When you apply and if you are accepted, your acceptance will be contingent upon agreeing to keep things private until such point as StrongFirst decides to publish them.
@Steve Freides, very honorable conduct on your part. You could have left the post as deleted to protect SF's interests, but you took the high road. A tip of the hat to you, sir.
