Jim wrote some time ago about Grey Pube training and capping all sets at 5 reps. As I fast approach Grey Pube status, how would this fit into the context of 5 up 3 back where the object is to push more than 5 reps in the 5 and 3 weeks once you have moved back 3 cycles?
Would this mean that 5 up 3 back is not applicable in this instance and I should keep pushing until I stall and then reset? I’ve used 5 up 3 back since day 1 (almost 2 years now) and found recently that pushing the PR reps on the last set when I go back 3 is starting to screw with my joints a little and my recovery.
I am still following the beginner template because its simple (meaning I cant screw it up) and because I like it. Conditioning is walking every day plus Agile 8 for mobility.
Any thoughts and feedback is appreciated.
