During the dbl pre-exhaust leg workout in Dr. Darden’s The New High Intensity workout, it calls for performing 1 set, in a 1&1/4, no-pause-turnaround/continuous tension manner of 8-11 reps for the leg extension, leg press, leg curl, SL deadlift & calf raises. I don’t know about anyone else, but Lactic Acid (LA) makes reaching MMF in the leg ext & leg press impossible! So then…in cases like these, is reaching LAF acceptable for ‘end-of-set’ when MMF has not yet been reached?
I used to do rest-pauses in my leg extensions to relieve LA pain to a point where I COULD continue the set until I hit MMF. But’ve not been able to find if that’s acceptable or not. Rest pause allowed me to consistently progress in weight/reps but size remained elusive.
