I’m currently on Chad Waterbury’s SOB routine.
It’s killer to say the least.
But my question is this:
His loading parameters get me at 80-84% max and 50-54% max.
For 10x3 it’s 80% max, and I set 205lb on bench for example… i know that is pretty close to my 80% max and i’m able to do it.
But for 2x30 at 50% max, I haven’t been able to do my 50% max, I tried all this week and i always have to take a 5 second break at about 20 reps, then finish the other 10. Then the second set is like 15reps 5s rest, 8 reps 5s, 7reps then rest.
My question is this… is the 50% 1rm just an approximation for what he is asking, or is it showing that i have poor muscular endurance?
