Unfortunately, the actual plan matrices themselves (ie, which workout on which day of which week) -- seem to be expressly designed to annoy. Each day's workout expressed in a short 2 or 3 letter "code". The codes are not at all mnemonic, and they must each be looked up at the back end of the book. And... once you find the right section to look them up in, things aren't alphabetical.
In short, the training-matrices are so poorly laid out that you should plan on spending at least an hour re-writing the one you're interested in, while cross-referencing between the plan pages & the appendices. Frustrating.
