    I have a useful PTP DL training spreadsheet if anyone is interested. It uses the structured wave cycle from the book and lets you plug in a single number (a theoretical max). It also lets you look as far ahead as eight cycles to project what you might be lifting in the future given an assumed rate of progress (which you also plug in). I find this type of "look ahead" important when training a simple protocol which can get boring if you lose sight of the goal.

    Needless to say the spreadsheet will not lift the weight for you.

    If interested shoot me a note at robt_lawrence   AT

    I really like the spreadsheet.  Just plug in my current max and it does all the calculations for me.  Thanks for setting it up!

    typically PTP is intended for 2 lifts. Let's say I want to use it to peak for a PL meet (currently finishing a PL specific bulking program) ... how to plan?

    This is a cool spread sheet.  I'm working on day 11 of Easy Strength, and the deadlift is my main lift.  Playing around with the numbers generated by the sheet have given me a good idea of where I'm at and also a good idea of where I might be going.

    Thanks for helping out the Strong First community, Rob!

    Thanks for the spreadsheet.  It's great to see the wave cycle all planned out to help me reach my dead lift goal!

    I got 37 requests for the spreadsheet. You're all welcome, happy to share.

    Russell, I suggest posting your question in a separate thread and getting several answers from experienced folks who've used PTP to peak for a meet.

    This is great, thanks Rob. Question though. Is the "estimated max" slot for your 1 rep max or your 5 rep max?
  13. Rob Lawrence

    It's one-rep max ...

    Hey Rob

    My Computer died and I had to get a new one, I cannot find the program that you emailed to me anywhere. Is it still available?

    Does anyone still have this spreadsheet? I am two weeks into a PTTP cycle and would love to check it out.

    I would also love to have this spreadsheet if anyone has access to it and could send it to me.
