I have a question regarding this article and other similar type of "bodybuilding" routines.
You'll notice that by the time we get to exercise "C" it prescribes 4 X 15 with a 313 tempo with 60 sec rest between sets.
Also notice that before we get to exercise "C", we have to do "A" and "B" which are brutal.
My question is what actual % of your 1RM would you actually select for C?
The reason I ask is because I've heard hypertrophy training should be done in the 60%-100% of 1RM range. And for many people 60% of 1RM = about 20 reps WHEN THEY ARE FRESH.
By the time you get to "C" I could only assume that you're using 40% of 1RM to complete the prescribed sets with the short rest intervals.
Does it matter that you're using such a low percentage of your true 1RM, or should we readjust the 60-100% hypertrophy range according to our fatigued state?
