Your 3 by 50 method is very interesting. It is challenging in it’s own way and is very addictive to the mind. However it is very difficult to progress on it.
Two reasons :
- Getting 50 reps in 3 sets with a meaningful weight is difficult.
- As soon as you increase weight the reps fall much below the range with dumbells.
Also which set to maximize to reach the 50 also has varying results.
So what should I do when I increase weight ? Let us say with all said and done I ended up at 42. Should I go ahead and do 8 more singles. Will that help ? OR I just go home and just try to beat the number next time ?
I love this 350 thing because it is kind off a game and triggers the will to compete with the Reps.
