And you don't use the TT in that set?
And in the next set, e.g. 17, you do the same, lower rate and maintain SPL?


I found a piece of paper where I wrote down SPL's from a sequence that you (Doc Sue) recommended to me:

TT-
time / SPL
1.20 / 17
1.22 / 18
1.24 / 17
1.26 / 17
1.28 / 17
1.30 / 17
1.28 / 17
1.26 / 17
1.24 / 17
1.22 / 17
1.20 / 16
and:
1.18 / 18
1.16 / 17
1.14 / 16
1.12 / 17
1.10 / 18

Does that mean now, if I start a matrix at a rate of appr. 1.3 and a SPL of 17, do I have to fasten my recovery to something at or below 1.10 to be sure to get a higher SPL???



Ok, ok, I guess I have to try it out...
Hey Haschu, how are you progressing on this type of stuff?
