this conversation got a bit heated. I was told by an "authority" that the best way to keep IN Season football(specifically) and other athletes strong was by using 75% of their 1rm for sets and reps. My response was "bullshit" as working out at a mediocre level would produce mediocre results and a system such as the 5/3/1 or westside would be a much better solution as your work ME twice a week along with DE twice a week, while still ending up at a 75% +/- average.
His reply is that it would have to be done under scientific circumstances to determine just how effective this would be. I quoted Simmons 63 Elite athletes as proof that you could remain strong or get strong(er) year around. He still called bullshit. Asked what I had as proof. I told him I have blood, scars and vomit on my side.
Who is more correct in this situation ? I am really that off base with this ?
thanks again for the killer T-shirts JIM. How about some sheep's blood (or equivelent) covering the D.o.W/ N.o.V shirts (you got that eh?) on future shirts ?
