1 and a half reps@105lbs lol. Talk about fail. But wait, it gets better!
0reps@185lbs (that was an EPIC FAIL!!!)
Okay, so I need some advice. Today was the first day I did the "ride the wave" method of weight training (see the rep scheme on the first two exercises I did above to see what I mean.) and I don't feel like I was able to pull it off very well. You're supposed to add about 5lbs to your two rep max on the last "wave". I wasn't able to do this.
By the time I got to the last two reps at the end of the second wave for the deadlifts, my hamstrings and gluts were completely fried. It took me forever just to get the 135lbs back onto the rack after I deloaded the bar to that point. My ass still hurts.
Is this the way it's supposed to go? Is it alright to fail at the last set when doing waves like this? For the record, I started at weights that I felt were pretty easy to manage four reps at. Suggestions?
