This thread is for people who train to be as big AND strong as possible. The great Louie Simmons once said that in order to become a really strong person you need to train with heavy weights. NSCA states in the Essentials of Strength and Conditioning that minimally 85% of an advanced trainee one repetition max should be used for the purpose of increasing strength.
lets hear about your method of training for strength and size.
example of what im doing now to build my hamms and lower back: kind of a fuse between DE and ME method but with higher % to get in high volume with heavy weight:
Warm Up triples, doubles, singles up to 90% of 1rm
7 sets of 2 with 80-85% (% change every 4 week block)
4 sets of 8-12 reps
GHR John Meadows style hamm killers
5 sets of 6-12 reps
2 sets of 15-20 reps
3 sets of weighted decline crunches
