Would it beneficial to base a full body routine on the 350 method?
I am 49
In good health but have a fairly high stress job and feel my higher set workouts are become to hard to recover from as I am not feeling pump and slogging thru
I have no interest in total 1rm max at this point but would like to have a “rep record” to chase to keep me motivated
Kind of pushing 50 reps at X% of body weight on main moves
Ex: did 80% of BW for 50 in 3 sets now doing 90% for 50
This would auto adjust for any leanness due to improved diet while still giving me targets
My main goal is putting on lean mass
With a second goal of dropping some fat
I am on a meal prep plan so nutrition is pretty spot on now!
I have a home gym with free weights so machines aren’t available
Squats of any kind kill my knees so I bought a trap bar
I was thinking:
Trap bar dead lift high handle 350
Incline press 350
Chin ups Amrap in 3 sets
Trap bar low handle 350
Behind neck press 350
Tricep extensions 350
Alternate above m/W/F.
On off days I walk and do yoga
And usually have a nature day on weekends biking/kayak/swim
