I was buying a book the other day and I came across a workout that, it said, “alot of bodybuilders do this”. It was a work that let each muscle have a 4 day rest period, and every day workout works on about 3 muscles. But heres the set and reps:
All on that one workout
5reps - 3sets 80% of max
12reps - 3sets 60-70% max
40 reps - 3sets 20-30% max
It said to do this for one muscle. For example, you would do the 5-3 on bench, and 12-3 on dumbell bench press, and so on. But I changed the workout a little. Instead of switching from each free weight between sets, I would workout all those sets on that one workout. For example, I would do 5-3, 12-3, and 40-3 all on bench press, then on incline dumbell press, then on preacher. I tried this and it was a bitch. But I have never felt so sore in my life. the results are coming in faster then I thought. But, is this to much on my muscles, am i over doing it? Any suggestions would also be cool. Up for any ideas.
