BBB Challenge Deload Week


#1

forgive me if i’ve missed this already, what are the percentages based on for the 5x10 assistance sets following the main lift on the boring but big challenge?


#2

They’re based on the Training Max


#3

@tsantos so for example, during deload week for bench im still basing the assistance work off of 50% of my TM (252lbs), which would be 125lbs x10x5? which is fine for me lol i love the pump, but seems alot for a deload week. weightwise and rep/set wise.

Sorry, I had forgetten the title of your thread when replying. There’s lots of options for the deload week.


#5

ah, i found it. im going to keep the 50% of training max and do 3x10 for the deload week on assistance. chinups i may do 3x6-8.
