I had a few questions; I'll try and consolidate into a single post.
1) Is it ok to use strength layers for one exercise and hypertrophy layers for everything else? Or is it better to just stick with strength layers for every exercise, then switch to hypertophy for every exercise?
2) How do you measure progress from session to session?
Until now I've always used straight sets, with a fixed number of sets, so progression was either to get more reps or to increase the weight.
With the layers, I'm not really sure how you'd quantify progress. Do you focus on total training load (sum of reps x weight)? or do you focus on how many reps were done within certain percentage ranges? or something else entirely?
3) What role does frequency play when focusing on strength with a layer schedule?
If I wanted to increase my overhead press strength, do I get more benefit doing it more frequently or less frequently? By more frequently, I mean, as frequent as SGHP sessions.
I could figure this out if myself if I knew how to appropriately measure progress.
4) What role does frequency play when focusing on hypertrophy with a layer schedule?
Likewise for hypertrophy.
