here is the scene.
picked up the red, blue, and green from Iron Woody.
did a bench workout once a week using them.
two weeks with red, around 2-6 reps, around ten sets for bench total.
one week just blue, same protocol.
follwing week (yesterday) blue and red.
all (workouts) bands are doubled and anchored by dbs.
well i got to benching yesterday and did about five sets of the blues. then two sets of the red and blues. again reps between two and six, just trying to maintain large amounts of acceleration. well i got cocky and tried to beat my old free weight max and was nearly crushed by it in the bottom portion. about the final two to three inches and it felt like i had no force output, despite trying to go as fast as possible. the top half never felt so light in my life and it was almost as if i had no weight in my hands at all. very empowering, that is until i hit rock bottom and missed the lift. i tried it again and did it for two reps. i was hoping like five at least. i would have thought progress would have come quicker than this.
suggestions? im assuming i just got overboard with this new style and what i should really do is something like a wave of tension rotations such as
week1 -bar weight
week2 - reds and bar weight
week3 - blues and bar weight
week4 - blues and reds and bar weight
week 5 - blues and bar weight
week6 - reds and bar weight
week7 - blow out old maxes
week8- repeat cycle. maybe even peak to greens!!!
again, all weeks maintaing a rep scheme from 8-2 reps depending on desired outcome.
im fairly new to the band training and one possibility may be overtraining. im not interested in westside. i think im overlooking something here and im looking for our intelligent collective thoughts to help me not get crushed by the bar again.
