this “grease the groove” way of training has been around a long long time. i used it a lot in my training, and results are always positive. getting past sticking points, setting pr’s, and just general training.
personally, i have all day and evening to train. so if i’m doing dips, i stretch a bit first, then i warm up with 1 set and get loose, then do my 1 set of dips at 75% of my max. thats supose to be the key. do 75% of max a number of times a day.
i’ll do these on the hour, or every 90 minutes. you get a ton of reps in without digging too deep. then in 6 weeks try for a pr and it always is acheivable. great way to train… of course i train the traditional way too, doing 5-6 sets and busting my asss to get all the reps…
what i dont know, is if this would work for benches, or dumbell rows or squats. bigger compound movements. say youu’re doing chest today, do a stretch, then a warm up set then the 1 working set at 75% of max. then do this at 9am and repeat every 2 hours. i have no idea if doing bigger compound exercises would work with this type of training. it sure works on pushups, pullups, dips. any thoughts? thanks
