hmm, so the volume is supposed to make it hard? the problem i have here is that, i feel that maybe i am not so fast twitch or whatever as the powerlifters i think? this program is designed for, so the 50% 60% and 70% would still be somewhat hard for people with a high percent of fast twitch muscle fibers; however, at the reps dictated and the % max dictated, those sets are pretty much the warmup sets i am performing on WS4SB currently.
to give you an idea of a current warmup, 10x bar, 5x135, 5x155, 3x185, 3x205, 3x225, 3x245, 3x265 (where i fail and get 2 and 1/2 on a good day), all with what id say is about 2 minutes rest in between, shorter in the beginning and longer once i hit the 225 area. if i were to perform sheiko, i would be doing (using a 270 max) 5x135, 4x165, 185x3, 185x3, then 205 3 sets of 5.
i would say with 1 minute rest in between the warmup sets to 205, after that, i could probably just do 205x15 straight up, give or take 1 depending on how many carbs i had over the weekend.
I guess what i am trying to get at is, is it alright to increase the % weight used on all the exercises in sheiko if they just seem too easy? or does the volume get to you after a couple of weeks?
i have not done this program yet, so i have no idea about how the volume affects you, but i am currently doing WS4SB the 4 days a week, plus a bunch of double days because i am just that bored haha.
one last question, is it ok to do like 200-300 pullups a 3 days a week in between the sheiko work out? i dont know why, but i just feel unsatisfied if i dont do pullups or rows during the week.
sorry for the trouble, and thanks in advance for replies.
