Ironman Workout


Hey there was this workout on Ironmans encyclopedia and was wondering if it would work.

M- Compound movements (fullbody) no direct arm work 30-40 sets total
W-Direct arm work 16-20 sets total
F- same as monday


Ok, I am confused...you did write SETS, right?...doing 30-40 SETS total in 1 single day.....

If this is right....how many reps per set are we talking about?

Is there a tempo guideline or a simple Chad Waterbury approach to "lift as fast as possible and lower under control" method approaches, with his take on the high end of the eccentric duration range should be a maximum of 1 second for short-range movements like dips and rows, and 2 for deadlifts and squats???
