Hey Jim and everybody else,
I’ve been pretty strictly following the BBB program so far and am in the first week of the 3rd cycle right now.
During the 1st cycle, the 5 x 10 sets felt easy. In the 2nd cycle, they became challenging. But now I am failing. I can’t complete set 4 and 5 without cheating in some kind of way, like longer rest periots or pauses during the set.
So the question is: which parameter is the best to cheat on?
- Longer rest periods, but keep weight, reps and sets the same
- less reps per set, but keep weight, rest and number of sets the same
- Lighter weight, but keep everything else according to schedule
- More sets but less reps
- any combination…
So… yeah, advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
