first of all: thank you for the great plan, high frequency/low volume is working tremendously for me.
Despite being happy with the overall progression, I have some trouble considering the rest-pause method:
If I get 6 hard reps in the first try, I barely get 2 after 15s pause and then 1 again. More often, its like
6 + 1 or max 2 + no additional reps, no matter if the exercise is front squats, dips, close grip bench press or military press-
In this case, which method would you use for progression:
a) increase the weight as long as I hit 6 reps in the first try
b) the weight remains constant till I hit 6 + 3 + 2, resttime remains constant
c) weight remains the same, increase resttime to 25-30seconds, so i hit 6+3+2 and then progress by decreasing rest time
d) switch to mTor or 6-8-10
During the last weeks I’ve choosen a). For example: Dips went from one week to another from
90lbs * 6+3+1 to
112,5lbs * 6+2+1 to
135lbs * 6 + 2 +0
It worked well so far, I am just not sure, if it is the way you consider to be best.
Thanks for answering.
