I’m certain this has been answered by someone somewhere in time before, but I’m just gona ask again because I don’t seem to have the gift of search magic. In this program, I know there are max effort lifts 2x a week upper/lower, and then the other lifts during the time. What i’m wondering is, do you try and go all out on every single lift, or just the max efforts and repetitions?
What I mean is, say monday is ME bench: so I’d do however many sets to a max, then the next lift being db bench, then rows, then trap work…do the db bench, rows, and trap work consist of reps that don’t hit anywhere near failure, or should I go almost or at failure with them too?
I ask because I’m on my 3rd week of WS4SB and last week I did 215 for 4 reps on the bench and this week I could hardly get 1 rep. THAT is NOT improvement or sign of a good program in my opinion, UNLESS it’s because i’ve been doing the assistance lifts too all out, and that has caused the decline. Can someone help me?
