I recently started training conjugate/massthetics style and I’d like to know something.
I use to do A LOT of sets on ME day.
Today I went to a 1rm on Conv. DL with bands and it looked like this (approx.)
50kgs x 10
50 kgs x 5
80 x 5
100 x 3
120 x 3
140 x 3
150 x 1
160 x 1
170 x 1
175 x 1
130 x 3 x 3
I like to do backoff sets so think I did too many steps before attempting my heaviest single.
Warming up (mobility etc… ) + getting to this 1rm almost took an hour… I don’t and I can’t do too long workouts and I don’t wanna minimize assistance work, so is only doing 6-7 total sets with warm up sets to the 1rm a problem ?
I’ve always read like ME days should be 8-12 total sets.
