Dubious Main Page rep scheme


Warm up wil progressive warm up o first attempt.
I took the guys through 1@95%, 10@ 70%,1@90%,20@ 60%, 1@ 85%, 30@ 50%

The singles looked a little easy so when I did it after they left I worked up to a 1 RM
1@100%,10@ 70%,1@95%,20@ 60%, 1@ 95%, 30@ 50% This was hard and felt good.

WRT rep schemes etc I fel you cant really honestly comment on them unless you have tried them so we gave it a hit. The singles really put the endurance sets into perspective ie. the drastic contrast made the long set feel pretty easy until you were at least half way.

Great session.

I thought varying between heavy and lighter but still making it hard (like those 30 unbroken reps,they really sucked!) was much better too. And not so boring as just getting heavier each set till 1 rep max version

I've been wanting to give this ago. 30 reps unbroken?

Brett_M/30/181cm/84kg said...

Yep all sets unbroken. Looking forward to being sore as f*#k tomorrow.

Scotty.A said...

Nice, the deads and squats would be interesting with this format

Brett_M/30/181cm/84kg said...

We did this with front squats. Give it a go.
