So then at what point do you increase your 1RM? I’m still in the mindset of 5/3/1 so I’m used to increasing my 1RM after reaching 95% of your previous 1RM.[/quote]
Taken from page one of the Article Discussion in the “Art of Waterbury” article linked above:
Great article,i can see more clearly now!
But there is one thing I miss:
What about a recommondation of TOTAL reps (of all muscle groups) in one session related to the specific %1rm?
f.ex: 24-72 total REPS of 80-90%rpm in one session.(this would be 1-3 exercises using the 24-36 scheme)
So is it possible, when I will pick up the range of 36 reps and work myself up to 50 reps (same weight used) and then when 50 is reached, I increase the weight and drop the reps to 36 again? (this will be more practical, because it is not possible for me to realize a 2,5%increase every time.(limited weight options-regardless of platemates)
When the article is going to be a “First site” article, it would be good to mention,to avaoid failure training-this is also a point of chads art;)
Thanx chad when you take the time to answer my post-you are the greatest!!![/quote]

The “total reps” that you’re alluding to is already set within my set/rep guidelines. Your question is similar to “how many sets in a given session?” Adhere to my set/rep parameters and everything will fall into place.
The progression you mentioned about 36-50, then dropping back down to 36 with a larger load is correct. Use it.[/quote]
Funny enough, I’m actually halfway through his first ABBH program. One day is 10x3 (reps increase each week) another day is 5x10 (weights increase each week). I can’t give a very scientific explanation, but I like it. I like it a lot.
