I am new to this forum and just purchased Power to the people. I am confused on the cycling. If one of the lifts stalls before the other before the cycle is over what do I need to do for that lift?

Like if my press gets down to 2 or 3 reps and my deadlifts are still pushing 5 reps. What do I do for the press during the cycle?

Ok,thanks Steve. So would I just take a few days off of pressing and continue with the deadlift until it gets down to 2-3 reps?

Cycle each lift as you would if it were the only lift you were doing, whatever that is. You could start your second press cycle while you're still finishing your first deadlift cycle. There is actually a lot of good that can come from cycling this way since you won't be working with the heaviest weights on both lifts at the same time except if it happens by coincidence once in a while - I think that's better for your overall progress on both lifts. The only time it wouldn't be appropriate would be if you had a meet or a test coming and had to have both ready on a specific date.
