In the past 60 days I have done in addition to my regular workouts, 2370 chins, lunges and over 6000 pushups as part of Chad Waterbury’s PLP Program.
I have had some success doing some of Chad’s high frequency stuff in the past, and before I started this I was doing 100 pushups daily to try and add some more size to my chest.
The PLP program basically requires you to start off at 10 reps for each exercise and add a rep to each exercise set every day. By adding in more work without overly taxing the nervous system, it allows you to develop more strength, hypertrophy and capacity to handle more exercise which is one of the keys to growth.
I’m currently on my second round of the program and I feel that my back, legs and chest are benefitting from all the extra work. I modified the program slightly to perform 100 pushups a day, because I felt that doing less wasn’t really challenging my muscles like it was when I was doing the 100 per day thing. I try to get the majority of the sets done in the morning before work, and I have to say I love the early morning pump and ”warming effect” it has on these cold mornings.
Working these bodyparts every day have resulted in more endurance in performing greater reps for these exercises and I can tell that my work capacity has greatly improved. I maintain a nice pump in the areas worked on a daily basis which feels kinda cool. Will definitely keep this supplementary work as a mainstay in my future programs.
