Question on the Strength/Skill Circuit routine. You suggest starting weight be around 85% 1RM. Which into my first week it has been good, but Im interest on how the sets should feel in terms of execution.
Ive watched your video of the circuit, and you seem to be using weights to achieve a more performance base execution.
For me, the sets have been strong but also tough so, more strength lifts…
Should the execution of sets be more performance type (ie Look like Bodybuilder, Perform like Athlete description) or more strength type. Want to get my weights right.
Also, how lenient can you be with the 85%. I understand strength/skill is best achieved between 80-90%, so could I use 80% and get a more performance execution in my lifts, would this have an equal effect? Or 82.5-85% Upper Body lifts and 80% Lower Body/Olympic Lifts?
On that, Im running the program 6 days a week (low stress/work from home), so would in fact I be better off using a bit lighter weight (80%) as I will be moving through the progression model quicker? Prevent stalling to quickly?
Thanks for the help,
