I’m doing a PPL routine. I’m working on getting stronger for the rugby season (starting in September).
The set up in simple – big strength move which getting heavier and heavier. Then lighter work for high reps to build a bit of size.
However I still feel like I’m not getting the most from my pull work outs. I don’t feel like the muscles are getting the work out they do on the push or legs days.
My last pull day was:
Trap bar dead lift 145kg (320lb) 3 sets of 5
Pull ups 3,2,2 (this sucks well aware).
Chest supported rows, 2 set of 15 – with 15 kg (33lb). 1 set of 10 with 17.5kg (38lb).
Curls 2 sets of 12 with 20kg (45lb)
After this I left tired and I was forcing some of the reps. But nothing like my leg or push days. It’s like I have on mind muscle connection at all. Not even the curls. Any ideas?
Also (if I can) – I’m following a progression methods I found on T-Nation for my main lifts (they are Matt/Jane Kroc programs) – do recommend chasing PR’s on secondary lifts?
For example on my bench day – I then do pressing. But I’m not chasing PR’s on my press. I just make sure I’ve not gone back wards from last week.
Or should I aim for some sort of progression on every lift, every session?
Thanks in advance.
