starting this routine from CW new book.
movements are listed :
A1
A2
this means finishing all sets/reps in A1 before moving on to A2, correct?

No. You perform one set A1, then rest, perform one set A2, rest, second set A1, rest, etc.

This goes for all programs on this site when enlisted as A1, A2 or B1, B2.

A, B, C would mean straight sets - perform all sets of A and then move on to B.

Also check out the threads after the respective articles. Things like this often have been covered already along with other useful information.

thanks Michael,
there are some a1-a2-a3-
that means do 1, rest do 2 rest do 3! rest then back to 1–i’ve never seen doing 3 seperate movements, which prompted the question.

Yup that would be giant set as opposed to a pair of two which is a superset.

Great choice of program

If you got this from the book, CW explains how he wants the sets done and why. Go back and re-read the explanations he gave.

Yes, everyone told you correctly how to do the sets but you may want to understand why.

I agree with Phill’s 8,678,238th post, great choice of a program.
