Wrong forum homey.


#4

how so? combat athletes can't ask training questions.


#5

Combat athletes probably aren't gonna know what the fuck you're talking about. This is better suited for... oh I don't know, any of the forums having to do with weightlifting on this site?


#6

That program is not for the average bear.
not at all.

descending sets

ten sets 6 reps starting with something close to your 5 or 6 rep max say 80% of your 1rm.

drop weight 10 to 20% after each set 6 times.

the killer is the 45 second rest period
probably enough to just pull off plates.

and these always go with some crazy ass tempo

of raising or lowering weight - zero pause- reset
that is what the 40x0 part means.

its confusing
and will fuck most people up
