I have read that you should not do more reps than minimum on the "+ sets" if you want to do the BBB challenge but I am really unsure about this. I keep getting really a lot of reps on these sets, usually about 5 more than minimum. So I feel like I don't get enough heavy work in if I cut back on these sets.
Is it possible to use variations of the main lifts for the 5 sets of 10? For example z press, block pulls, board press and front squats? Of course I am talking about other barbell variations of the main lifts, I don't want to do something completely different.
Thanks for any answers in advance!
