Hi, I'm new here. Over the past few months I've been following westside and have added about 100lbs to my big 3 lifts. For my light days, I've mostly focused on dynamic effort. However, I think I want to take a break from that and focus on doing repetition effort because my work capacity can be pretty rubbish, especially for upper body.
The problem is, I've done RE for squats and benching before, and both absolutely kill me for the rest of the workout. Normally after my DE work I'm not nearly as fried so I can go moderately heavy on box squats or floor presses (5-6 reps) to get a good workout on some of my weak points.
If I did the same weight, and same range after RE work, it'd be impossible so I'd have to drop about 40-50 lbs depending on the lift, which doesn't really seem too beneficial in the end. Obviously if I'm doing RE that day, then that's my main priority, but I like to maximize my workouts and get the most out of them.
So I guess my main question is, if I do RE benching and RE squats, what supplemental lifts do you recommend? About what rep range should I try for? What has worked for all of you?
Thanks for your time...
