I am loving the recent content you have been releasing on Tnation and Thibarmy. I realized that I respond far better to lower volume-high intensity training. My training mostly consists of submaximal compound lifts at a somewhat high frequency followed by assistance work done with intensity techniques such as drop sets and rest pause.
I will be traveling for some time and will not have access to a proper gym with barbells and heavy dumbells for most of the week. I should be able to make it to a proper gym twice a week but I will have a gym with light dumbells available to me in my hotel. I was thinking of doing heavy legs and back when going to the proper gym, and then doing pressing muscles and bicep/rear delt work the other days. For these days in the hotel gym, what do you think of rest pause pushups? I was thinking of this based on the study suggesting that 30% 1RM and 80%1RM resulted in the same muscle growth as long as you hit failure. I should fail between 50 and 60 pushups (I would use tempo contrast+pauses or something of that nature to make it more difficult) I realize that this won’t be optimal but would this provide a viable growth stimulus for a short period of time?
