He says that if you start at a heavy weight doing 5 reps its only a matter of time before you stall because the weight gets too heavy for you to progress.
I have stalled out on two major lifts my bench and my row and I am thinking about cutting the weight by a lot and working with higher reps.
Im currently hitting 87.5kg for 3 reps on my bench and 100kg for 5 reps on my barbell row.
So now I am thinking about “resetting” my lifts to 70kg for bench and 80kg for row and going from there.
Going one rep from failure on the first two sets and hit failure on the last set. Adding 2.5kg every workout (twice a week). Hopefully after 4 weeks of adding 5kg to my lifts I will be rapping 90kg on bench and 100 on row.
Is this a good plan for progression ?
or do the loads start too light for me to gain strength and size ?
My elbows could also use the break from the low rep training.
