Wish you a very Happy New year !!
I have a question where I want to get better at handling more reps/set. I have always trained in the 5-7 reps range and am good at it. Even 8 reps/set is slightly more for me and something like 10 is way too much.
Now I want to explore very high reps per set something like 15 reps/set for upper body and 20-25 reps for Squats. However I am very bad at that. Even with lighter loads getting these many reps on 2nd or 3rd set is difficult. Even in Crossfit kind of training I do badly. My cardio strength gives up much before my muscles give up.
I am 37 years old with almost 12 years of training. I just want to get good in this workout range for the sake of variation and I have no real goals for aesthetics/strength.
How can I program myself for this ?
I have tried to take care of my pre-workout nutrition and Rest periods to help me with this but don’t have much of a clue. I can train 3-6 days per week so frequency or lack of it is not a concern.
