Could some people need more reps with their warmup. For instance today’s squat workout I did 415x6, 435x4, then 450x1. I train hard 3 weeks, then deload 1 week. I’d say my max squat is around 480-485 now. I’m shooting for a 500 raw squat within the next month-ish.
Anyways the other day I warmed up with 405x1, 440x1, but MISSED 460x1…and that was last week when I AM MORE FRESH! It doesn’t make sense…it seems that I have to do a billion reps before my muscles really get to the working…can anyone explain this/offer me better warmup or something.
Oh and same thing goes for deads. Same DOES NOT apply for bench, i can do 315 with no warmup at all. So weird. anyway know whats up? Thanks a lot, much appreciated.
