Starting to dose fert... how often?

Hey guys so I am getting my shipment of ferts in this coming week. I was planning on dosing with EI. So my 75g tank is between low medium light and high low light in range. I have excel but no other co2. I read this on dosing " This 3x per week dosing is suggested for high light tanks with co2. If you have medium light tank try starting out dosing 2x per week, low light tanks can be dosed 1x per week. If in the example of the medium light tank you dose 2x per week and you start seeing deficiencies then up the dosing to 3x per week."

My do water changes on Mondays. So if I do a water change on Monday, should I dose macros on Tuesday, and micros on Wednesday, and then do macros again on Friday, and micros on Saturday?

I just wasnt sure the appropriate way to spread out dosing. Thanks!
