TP's Taking Testers: Tri-Phase Progressive Training
Well folks, as some of you know, for the better part of the last 3 months, a few of us have been implimenting a new training protocol that I have been working on.
We (the initial small group of testers) are wrapping up our first training cycle, and worked out many of the kinks. We have also seen some (in my opinion) impressive results, to date, with this small sample group (3-5, depending on how you count).
As such, it is time to expand the user base significantly, and see what this program can really do for the masses. So I am looking for more feedback. Please respond here, if you are interested, and if (and only if) I ask yout to email me, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The working name for the program is Tri-Phase Progressive Training or TP-PT, for now.
Here are the rules:
* Each phase is four weeks, and I will give each user one phase at a time.
* You must commit to and complete 12 weeks, as designed.
* You must take before and after pictures.
* You can be bulking, cutting, or recomping.
* You must log/journal your experiences and workouts on this board, including subjective feelings.
* You may disclose any information relation to the workout you did on the day you did it. You may not disclose information of upcoming workouts.
* Diet and supplementation (and drug use) are wholly up to you so long as you aren't using something for the first time. However, if you want to work with a Carb Cycling program, I can help you design one for your goals.
Here is what I need to hear:
* A pitch about why you are interested, and confirmation that you will meet all of the above rules, including and especially, duration, secrecy/privacy, and providing detailed feedback.
hi TP - i'm interested! i've been on a nice roll of not missing the gym at all and that will continue (not missing). my workouts are going well but i'm always interested in learning and trying new things. i'll go the distance with Tri-Phase.
i will only post workouts after the fact (as i do now) and not disclose what's coming next.
i currently keep notes in my written log about how things feel during workouts etc. i don't always transfer those over to im but i certainly can and would during these 12 weeks.
i'll post every workout..the only hitch is no computer at home so i will only be able to update m-f.
i'm ready if you are.

I am always looking to learn about training and diet and the effects on my progress. I am open-minded and flexible, and hard-working. After seeing many successes with Carb-cycling and your previous program, I think this would be a great opporunity to learn and grow.
Keeping tabs isn't a problem, I have no problems with the criteria stated.
I'm definitely interested. I'm 26 and have been training for about 5 years. Been extremely dedicated (training and diet) for the past 2-2.5. I've been using P/RR/S for over a year and have made great gains. I'm pretty light, but the strength and body comp changes have been considerable. I think I'd be a very good choice for many reasons...particualry, the fact that I have OCD (yes, diagnosed). I keep an extremely detailed workout/diet log and will continue to do so. I'd probably be one of your smaller testers. I'm 5'6 and 155 lbs. Lemme know. Thanks!
But when you disarm them, you at once offend them by showing that you distrust them, either for cowardice or for want of loyalty, and either of these opinions breeds hatred against you.
I am very interested in trying something new. I am going to be at school for the summer, which means free access to the rec, we got a great facility, and ive got all sorts of free time (like hours on end). I supplement only with protein and glutamine, used creatine at one point but not now.
I would love to do this, i have no problem agreeing to the terms and conditions posted above. I am very interested in bulking right now, I'm 5'10", 172 pounds, was 142 when i started lifting. Optimum time for me to start, however, would be in one month. I am working on getting back to the shape i was in before my surgery, which should take a few weeks, but not much more; im back at the rec 5-6 times a week now. I am interested because when I started lifting, I had no problem gaining weight. This has been a problem recently, that I plateaued and changing things didnt help. I would like to see if this works for me, and if it does, itd be a true testament to your program.
