With grey pube era approaching, I'm thinking that higher reps on the PR set might be a wise move to start making.
I was sure that i read a response from you (on another forum) along the lines that, if a higher-rep work set was wanted then just lower the TM e.g. 70% of 1RM.
Ok, if BBB programming is followed for 5x10 on assistance, then maybe a higher % of TM is required than 50% (i.e. if a lower TM is used)?
eg squat/deadlift 1rm = 500lb
set TM @ 70% for higher reps on PR set = 350lb
using 50% of TM = 175lb
which for a 500lb squatter/deadlifter looks a little too light for 5x10.
Hope I've managed to explain correctly and pLease understand I'm not "asking for permission" to raise the %TM used, just looking for some insight on how you might "tweak for grey pubes"!
Thanks for any you might share!!
