Need some help picking a program! (power to people)

#1 Postby aphexish » Thu Jun 28, 2012 1:57 pm

I am in week 7 of a 12 week crossfit beginner program. The best program I've ever done, I've seen great results on it.

So I've read Power to People by Pavel Tsatsouline, and his program recommends:

Deadlifts and Side Press x2 @ 7RM for 5 reps
then drop that weight by 90% and perform another rep.
5 days a week.

I want to do his 'Bear' routine...which is essentially:

5 reps of DL and Side Press at 7RM.
90% of that weight for another 5 reps.
then 80% of that 7RM weight for another 5 reps...which you continue until you can not perform 5 reps in good form.

There are two variations to the 'Bear' routine I would like to try:

a crossfit variation
and a
dan john variation

anyone done any of these with any decent results?!
