Big Set - Your Take

I spotted a bodybuilder today who did a set of lat pull downs something like this: He basically did a DC rest pause sets, so 8 reps, little break, 5 reps, little break, 3 reps… then when he could no long perform a concentric rep by himself, we did 2-3 forced reps, then added 30lbs and did 2-3 negatives… what is your take on this?

Did he have big lats?

My take on this is if you can make progress with it then why not…

He hasn’t forgotten. Plus, what are you doing posting at this hour? Get to bed you little bastard.

sounds good for a compound lift, but I don’t know how well it would work on an isolation movement. It definitely sounds very similar to DC style lifting and that obviously works for some people, so I would say try it out and see if it works for you.

Ya he was a pretty big guy all a round, he does many of his lifts with this style… the more I think about it, like Fandango said, its very similar to DC, so I would imagine he would progress the same… to my understanding, more muscle built on the eccentric portion of a rep, so by extending the rep that far, he would be cause more muscle damage, and adding muscle quicker?
