Hey guys, just looking for some advice. Generally speaking I’ve taken a liking to the following rep scheme:
Work Up to a top set of X reps
Backdown, AMRAP, 10, 10
Or more specifically:
Worked up to a top set of 335 x 5 on squats
Backed down to 275.
AMRAP (got 13), 8 reps, 8 reps.
It’s something I picked on doing Darkhorse forever ago, and while the giant sets can die in a fire, I really like how the rep scheme allows you to self regulate, while still getting all the volume you can handle. And for the most part, has been tremendously productive to my training.
However, on leg day, and only leg day, by the time I’m done with squats, I can barely stand, let alone do lunges, or any other unilateral leg movement. Which I consider to be a large weakness of mine. (However, not enough to forego squats in favor of them) is this a common occurance? What are some workarounds? Or am I just being weak minded, and need to give my balls a tug? Thanks!
