I have a question again…
In the past you said, you should accelerate maximal every rep you make.
In your log 1 you say : ( the first part is a question)( second CT’s answer)
Are practice sets still ideally done in 1-5 reps, as explosive as possible (turnaround)? If using your double progression method and doing a higher rep zone, still keep low reps but more sets on practice sets or match high reps but use fewer sets to not cause excessive fatigue? Also do you ever see a case where 1-3 practice sets are all one needs and then hit top set? Instead of the extended 3 rep ramps I mean. Thanks
- I believe that practice sets should copy the actual heavy sets as closely as possible. I use to recommend being very explosive and having a fast turnaround, but ever since I got back to Olympic lifting I have changed my point of view: you should attempt to copy the dynamics of your heavy lifts exactly. This means having the same form and rhythm. The same rhythm means having the same bar speed and accelerating at the same portion of the range of movement as with your heavy lifts. Basically if we somehow photo-shopped the weight in a video you shouldn’t be able to know which set is heavy and which one is light.
Does that change workouts like HPmass which relay on a ‘‘perfect’’ rep where you should accelerate as fast as possible as hard as possible?
Could you please explain that? I am unsure how to do a rep now ?
Thanks for reading, maybe you find the time to asnswer
