Might I trouble everyone with another silly question?
If ramping up to 1 RM, then doing a cluster, the cluster is 1 rep every 10 seconds. subtract weight if you can only get three, add if you get up to 6.
Now, when you drop back to 70% of the 1 RM, to ramp up to a 2 RM, when you do the cluster, are you doing this cluster with 1 rep or 2? Same question with 3 RM cluster.
Have the concepts been centralized or are they presented somewhere over the course of days, weeks?

When you back down to 70% and ramp up to a 2RM, you only 2 sets of 2, gradually adding weight until your hit your 2RM.
Then you pick 90% of that weight and do clusters with it, the same way as you did earlier (so 1 rep, rest, 1 rep, rest, etc.).[/quote]
Thanks for the rapid response. I kinda figured that, but didn’t want to assume.
Habs are doing well. I assume you will be watching tonight.
Last comment for you or others. After these workouts, I don’t leave the gym as winded, but still tired, if that makes sense. About 90 minutes later, I am ravenously hungry. Like eat a pound of beef withjout chewing hungry. Others have similar experience?[/quote]
If you are hungry, and it is not psychological hunger (to dal with boredom or stress) nor is it mechanical hunger (empty stomach) then it is your body telling you that it needs more nutrients… and why else would it need more nutrients then if you just stimulated a lot of potential growth requiring those nutrients?
