To be honest, I haven’t bought into the whole lift as fast as possible them, I think I try to do that anyways. I am using the book for the programs, but instead of doing 25 reps, I will just do 5 x 5, I am doing the program with a training partner who isn’t as advanced as I am so I thought it would make it easier on him just to say 5 x 5 not lets stop the set when your speed slows down.
I’ve explained it to him and we adhere to it, not just to a T. We’ll increase the weight every week and he has trimmed up quite nicely so hes pleased.
I think Chad’s speed system on counting reps is great, but it isn’t as practical for us. So I’ve been doing 5 x 5, 5 x 3, 4 x 10, 3 x 12, 2 x 25 to match the desired reps. I personally like the exercises he matches together in his programs.[/quote]
Ditto - I just do 6x3 as very heavy, 5x5 as heavy, 4x10 med, 3x15 as light and 2x20 during some of the unloading weeks.
