hello i am training for 5 months i done for 4 months stronglifts 5x5 and now i am doin fullbody workout 3 days per week i have workout A B C and do one of each every week ! i see the gainz and i took 8 kilos in the past 7 months i feel great ! i am 182 cm and 74 kg
i do 4 sets of 8-12 reps ! i am not sure if i am using too much or not weight ! i mean for example at rope pushdown for my triceps i can use 60 kg / 130lbs and do 8 very hard pushdowns i feel like i am pushing so hard to do the exercise and i don’t feel the pump or the burn right away i see it and feel it after half an hour or so ! but when i do this exercise slow and steady at 40-50kg i feel the burn this one that make your muscle ichy and u going crazy and u feel like it is going to explode and u can’t stop reps and the pumps and feeling can;t be described !
my main goal for now is size i will return to somekind hybrid or strength focus training at some months from now but at the moment i am looking for hypertrophy ! i am supplement free yet i am having a nice diet and my recovery is very good ! my soreness leaves me at the one days off between the workouts !
which weight i should use i saw people 3 times my size using light weights and doing slow reps yet i see them also doing the same reps with high weights !
i am very confused ! i may mention that at my last workout i did cable bicep curls with 45 kilos and i literaly saw a tear coming off and i was like i am goin to pass out yet i said to my self stop being a bitch and keep pushing but screw it i was so motivated at the moment that i kept pushing through my limits ! ofc now my arms feel sore and my head is going to explode feaguring which weight is right ! the very high intesity with high volume combined OR the medium more slow and with of course better form high volume training ?
