I just bought your conjugate bodybuilding program which I can’t wait to begin… I just have a few questions to help us get started-
For the assisted exercises in the program they follow a volume based scheme, but with your recent writings about 1 set to failure/ rest-pause keeping volume low, what is the thought process around this? I particularly don’t mind either way of training.
Are the double stimulation days considered more of a light day than a normal training day? You have mentioned about moving towards 4 or maybe 5 training days a week rather than 6 -7 for optimal results, does the double stimulation still adhere to 4 training days a week, maybe be considered more of a recovery day than a typical training day?
a) How should I change the double stimulation day on Thursday into an arm day? Looking at my body development, my arms are holding my physique back so want to bring them up in size. What would be the best way to go to focus on arms?
b) Referring to Q1 about volume vs 1 set to failure/rest-pause, in your double stimulation article you suggest using techniques like this (rest-pause/mechanical drop sets) when focusing on bringing up 1 or 2 lagging muscles, how would you use it for this program, if applicable at all?
c) Do I keep the arm isolation exercises in the program done on the other days?
On the overcoming isometrics for bench, squat and deadlifts, should I just use an empty BB or should I have some weight on the ends?
I use a home gym so what substitutes would you implement for-
Leg Press =
Hack Squat =
Thanks a lot for the help, can’t wait to get started,
