Hope you are doing well.
I’ve been looking for some program and i found out this: Olympic Lifts in ‘How I Added 100 Pounds to My Deadlift’ Template
This is my second week following it the you wrote it. I would like to ask you for the following:
For the main lifts: deadlift, squat, bp and overhead press how heavy should i go?
For example yesterday i did bench press: 1x5x82.5; 1x4x87.5, 1x3x92.5; 1x2x97.5:1x1x102.5 (everything is in kilograms.)
The last two sets were hard, but not near to failure. Let’s say that i could’ve done them with + 2.5 kg , but it would be with grinding(especially for the last one). Should i pursue this?
Let’s say next week i will be doing ramping up till 2 rm max on the deadlift. Should i pursue that till i have nothing left in the tank, or to leave something in it?
I’m having trouble determining how heavy should be every working set on the main lifts. Should it be till failure? Should i leave something in the tank? If yes, how much should i leave? I would appreciate if you could share with me some general guidelines, which i can use, because i am struggling with this.
