As the title says, when does easy conditioning become hard conditioning? If I were trying to sum it up from the books I’m getting the feeling that easy conditioning is anything that can’t possibly impact your main lifts and hard conditioning is work that has the possibility of effecting them from working too hard.
I haven’t seen much mentioned of doing complexes, circuits anywhere (probably for a good reason) but they just happen to be what I prefer over things mentioned explicitly in the books like Prowler pushing, weighted walks, airdyne, ect.
I see that Wendler suggests super setting your assistance work in between working sets or warm ups but what about just supersetting/giantsetting all assistance work together for conditioning?
Is a complex without any weight still considered easy conditioning and adding weight makes it hard conditioning?
Also, wondering if anyone can chime in here about possibly just replacing traditional assistance work entirely with something like a barbell complex or curl bar complex.
