Good luck with the program! If you are not able to keep up with the volume while taking Indigo and using good workout nutrition, try lowering the weights. The rep scheme and set numbers are essential to the success of the program, so if a lighter weight is needed to complete it, it’s an easy adjustment.
Just from my experience, I did not do any light pull sets between the press, squat and bench each day when I was on the hypertrophy program, I don’t recall that being in there (CT does state each program has slight variations.) I never had an issue with meeting the numbers or performance on those exercises, and with the length of these workouts, adding extra sets could put you in the gym for a really long time. If you feel you need them it couldn’t hurt to throw in a light set, but with the volume and amount of sets in each workout, you may not need it.
I am not doing the hypertrophy program currently, and I have been adding in some opposing lighter active rest sets, it’s a great way to get in some extra work without fatiguing the muscles used for your main exercise![/quote]
hell yeah man!
yeah its not even outlines in his HP MASS prgrams but in the videos he does say too,
your spot on there, theres no point adding extra work because it already is volume intenseive and id be there all night at the gym lol, i just thought that was always a principal of his as this is a pressing oriented program and dont want problems in the shoulders or rounding etc
