What do people usually do for the last + set on each workout? I’ve had good success with this program but almost always do as many reps as possible. After starting the program again recently I capped my reps at 10 so essentially my week 1 is not AMRAP but the other 2 weeks are, but after enough cycles week 1 will be closer to AMRAP and I won’t be getting 10 on week 2 soon.
I thought of making the following change which is a way to plan leaving reps in the tank. When using true AMRAP sets my reps are usually a difference of 2 each week, so week 1 if I got 9 then week 2/3 would usually be 7 and 5 reps. So my planned change is after each cycle to cap week 1 at the previous week 3s reps +2 and cap week 2 at +1 rep. This is close to leaving 2 reps in the tank for week 1 and 1 in the tank for week 2 and week 3 is always AMRAP.
Example reps on + sets
Cycle1: 10/9/8 (using 85% TM you can get about 8 reps on week 3)
Cycle2: 10/9/7 (Didn’t get 8 on week 3 so -1 rep on week1/2 next cycle)
