"Best Damn Natural Program", Weight on Rest-Pause Sets?


#1

when you say 2 sets of 6 for the lifts that utilize double rest paused, is this the same weight for rest paused?


#2

These sets are not typical warm-ups. They’re done with weights close to
your working set weight, or you can even use the same weight as your
work sets but do fewer reps. Basically, your level of effort on these
two sets is about 7 out of 10.

Straight from the article. Read it, understand it, then do it.

I’m sorry my fuhrer.


#4

You do two preparation sets… one which would be a typical warm-up set so about 5/10 on the effort scale… then the second set is about a 7 or 8 on a scale of 10, then you do your work set which is the double rest/pause set


#5

not that T-nation is much of a politically correct country club, but the fuhrer remark is pretty lame.


#6

I get it all the time because of my username :grin:


#7

the link between furious/furious and fuhrer does not grab me as apparent but I guess I ought to get out more… :slight_smile:
