I’m confused on the rep ranges on this workout
so where it says:
Workout 1: 5 x 1 (85%), 1 X 3 (75%)
Workout 2: 6 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 3: 7 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 4: 8 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 5: 9 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%)
Workout 6: 10 x 1 (85%)

do the workout numbers refer to when you hit each group (i.e. Monday 5 x 1 (85%), 1 X 3 (75%) and thursday 6 x 1 (85%), 1 x 3 (75%) on the same exercises?
Monday: Group 1
Tuesday: Group 2
Wednesday: OFF
Thursday: Group 1
Friday: Group 2
Saturday: Manual labor workout (explained below)
Sunday: OFF

I mean its only 8 total reps at submaximal weights and then partial lifts so how long is this work out supposed to last. the article says that manual labor workouts can last anywhere from 45-60mins but what about every other day?
