Hi everyone. After using the search tool to find what I can on these forums on doing 5x5 training, I’m left with a few enigmas that I have yet to find.
I understand that I’m just performing core exercises, about 3 days a week, at a weight that I can comfortably perform 5 sets of 5 reps. (ie. I gather the 4th and 5th set should be tough but not overly brutal) For helping me out with some weight loss…
Fine. I do understand. I only have two more questions:
- What rep speed should I be performing these?
- What kind of rest is recommended (for weight loss) between sets?
Thanks a lot, and keep on liftin'!
