Hi, I just switched from the old BUD/S Warning Order to the PTG, was at week 6 of Warning Order and was influenced by others in this community to switch. At first I didnt want to, as I didint want to quit something I hadnt completed, as to me that is a sure way to DOR at BUD/S but I believe the effectiveness and organization of the PTG and the workouts overal are better so I switched. Anyways, the real question I have is about the sets and rest times of the PTG. In the warning order the entire PT workout should be completed without any rest. This is not so for the PTG as it focus' more on form and the negative movements of reps, so rest is essential. However, my question is whether the prescribed rest time is after "one" set of pushups, or any other exercise for that matter, or after a "cycle set" of pushups, then onto situps, then onto pullups...etc. Finally, another question I have is whether it is ok to incorporate other exercises such as dips and leg PT such as lunges squats and calf raises. I used to do these exercises in combination with the warning order PT on opposite days of the warning orders prescribed PT days, but now with the 5 days of PT for the PTG I cannot alternate, therefore my only option would be to add them onto my normal Push Sit Pull PT sessions. Thanks for all who read this and I would just like to thank everyone who contributes to this site as I have learned a ton of information relevant to training.
