Question Re: Part 3 - Beast Building


#1

I understand for the 7/5/3 wave loading pattern...

First set of A1
Rest 60 seconds

First set of A2
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of A1
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of A2
Rest 60 seconds

Third set of A1
Rest 60 seconds

Third set of A2

...and so on.

But the second part (The reverse pyramid loading pattern)

5 sets (Two sets of 10, two sets of 8, one set of 6)

Would it go:

First set of B1 (for 10)
Rest 60 seconds

First set of B2 (for 10)
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of B1 (again... for 10)
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of B2 (again... for 10)
Rest 60 seconds

First set of B1 (for 8)
Rest 60 seconds

First set of B2 (for 8)
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of B1 (again... for 8)
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of B2 (again... for 8)

Etc.. ??

Or would you do:

First set of B1 (for 10)
First set of B2 (for 10)
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of B1 (again... for 10)
Second set of B2 (again... for 10)
Rest 60 seconds

First set of B1 (for 8)
First set of B2 (for 8)
Rest 60 seconds

Second set of B1 (again... for 8)
Second set of B2 (again... for 8)

Hopefully that wasn't too complicated...
