    Was a theoretical question. I read the "Into the Great Wide Open" and the "General Strength Training Template for the Intermediate/Advanced" and am trying to figure the principles the approach is based on.

    1) We unfortunately don't know anything at all about you to comment on your programming choices.

    2) It appears that you plan to reduce lift frequency to once per week per lift? That is generally not a good idea for most people.

    3) Just saying "intensity" or "volume" doesn't tell us anything about what you actually plan to do, which may still be inappropriate regardless of the overall training organization.

    Sorry, I don't think we can be particularly helpful here.

    4 day split programming

    4 day - Upper/Lower split program - 1
    Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday
    Bench - Intensity Squat - Intensity Press - Intensity Deadlift - Intensity
    Press - Volume Deadlift/Pull - Volume Bench - Volume Squat - Volume
    4 day - Upper/Lower split program - 2
    Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday
    Bench - Intensity Squat - Intensity Press - Intensity Deadlift - Intensity
    Bench - Volume Squat - Volume Press - Volume Deadlift/Pull - Volume


    I understand that doing the exact same set x rep x weight (@ the same % of 1RM) scheme at a higher RPE results in higher systemic stress. So, does it make more sense to rearrange Program - 1 to Program - 2 for long term progress? My other motivation is that Program-2 would save me time and effort in moving the barbell and the plates around (my home gym has the rack and deadlift platform in two diagonal corners of the home).
    Also, do comment on what you think are the fundamental short comings of this training organisation?
