I’ve been keeping up with Bizarre’s Physique Clinic ( http://www.T-Nation.com/readPhysClin.do?id=1824542&pageNo=2 ), and his last leg workout left me at a bit of a loss.
his first exercise was:
Back Squat 6-8 reps. Consisting of 2 sets of reps to failure, rest 10 secs, reps to failure, rest 10 secs, reps to failure and then do partials to failure.
Even with a group of spotters, going to true failure on squats so many times and then partials to failure just seems like a sure way to kill yourself. It would work fine with the leg press, extensions and curls as prescribed for later in the routine. How do you interpret Thib’s new routine? Near failure?
I liked the look of the first couple workouts so I went ahead and gave them a try, I’ve been on a high volume routine for a few months now and this new routine seems like a nice change of pace. I’ve done the first two workouts (which were great!!!), and am planning to do this leg day tomorrow. But I’ve been going to all out and utter muscle failure, barely able to move my own body parts following the sets. I just can’t see how thats possible with squats and wondering what you all think… Thanks!
