High/Low Sequencing


#1

Hi everyone,

For the past month or so, I have experimenting with split training system.(CHEST/TRICEPS and etc.)

I felt though that it wasn't for me. So recently, I have been reading about High/Low sequencing, (I own the book by James Smith)and from other sources.

GOALS:
concurrently develop strength, size, and speed.

Well I found that there are many different ways to utilize high/low, whether you use upper/lower or total body split. Within those categories, there are 100 different ways to approach it.

One way I figure I would approach it, is to label high/low to movement patterns, much like what CT suggested in his forum.

The problem with this approach is that, with full body splits, it is a little bit difficult to fit in assistance/supplementary lifts.

So right now, I would like to start a fullbody approach that utilizes both high/low and me/se/de/re methods.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S
Example
Heavy BP
Heavy Chin
Heavy SQ
Light Military
Light Row
Light DL

Rotate "heavy and light"
