Thanks man! He said he used it I think.
I would buy one, and will definitely in the future, but it’s too expensive atm.
I’m early twenties and as soon as work and training stress combine, I get the libido of a 55+ year old. So not going balls out all the time will be the way to go.
The thing I didn’t understand from CTs article was that he said some people just aren’t made for heavy loads which if i get it right means training under 85% all the time. That seems counterproductive to me for strength or muscle gains. And I wanted his opinion on it. He also said it’s especially people with low serotonin (I’m definitely one of them) that this applies to.
Although there were a lot of good ideas and great advice on here, which I will definitely use, I think CT said something different. He didn’t say “not made for heavy lifting often”, he said “not made for heavy lifting” period. (Maybe he can comment @Christian_Thibaudeau ) Which to me indicates I should try higher reps with the big lifts. For the next few weeks i will process linear nearing my old numbers, then I’ll switch to the cube method or something similar. Maybe I’ll do a few months of higher reps before that though. Like 6-8 on bench, squat, pull ups, rows, DLs. I’m not gonna train above RPE 9 too. See where that leads me. I’ll make adjustments based on the way I feel the day after a workout.
