“Workouts have to be short and effective, and when you train for relative strength you have to do a lot of sets. If you do a lot of sets, you can’t do a lot of exercises. Athletes need split training to get adequate recovery.”
~Excerpt from one of the strength articles in the archives.
Is he meaning 5x5 for example all at 90% or greater effort?
Currently I’m ramping weight to one max set but this doesn’t feel like enough stimulation. What amount would you prescribe? Assuming I’m a typical 18 year old with a good diet and plenty of sleep.
I am getting stronger using this method but it stills feels too quick and ‘easy’. (My max set is not easy but all the others are.)
