I have a few questions about Waterbury’s “Perfect 10” program:
I understand the eccentric should not be more than 2 seconds – but should there be a one second pause during each part of the lift?
The program says:
“Perform for one or two body parts. Choose one exercise for each body part, each day.”
To take an example, on Day 3, one should do:
Rest: 70s (70seconds)
Load: 6RM 6 reps max)
Does this mean one should do 6 sets for the one muscle, plus 6 sets for another muscle every day? Or rather, 3 sets per one muscle, plus 3 sets per another muscle every day?
- What does “RM” mean?
Does this mean I should pick a weight that I could do 6 sets of, for 3 reps each? Or does it mean that I should do three reps per set, changing the amount of weigh per set?
I know this is a stupid question – but what can I say, I’m ignorant!
- How close to failure should I go on each exercise? Should I go to failure some days and not others?
He doesn’t specify going to failure until week 6, if I am reading it properly.
