What is the proper way to incorporate heavy light and medium days into my full body routine?
The part that I’m unsure about is if I’m just changing the rep range and still going to failure or almost, or if I’m going lighter to the point where say I could do 15 and I stop at 10.
For the past couple months I’ve been doing different rep ranges. For example, my light day I use just my body weight for dips and pullups and I go to failure. Medium I use an extra 25 lbs to failure, and heavy I do 45 lbs. The sane amount of sets for all.
Even though I’m going to failure I still feel I recover much quicker on my light day. So it seems to be working. And I’m adding reps every week.
Here’s the weird thing though, I’m staying about the same reps on my heavy day for weeks at a time, but my light day I’m doing more reps. Currently I can do 14 Pullups full rom, slow up and down. More than I ever could. A while ago I couldn’t do more than 6-8 for the longest time. For dips I maxed at 10 now I can do 20. This week I finally added a couple reps I’m my heavy day though. The progress just seems weird but either way I’m doing a lot more than I used to.
It’s like I’m not fully recovered by my heavy day, but I am on my light day?
