For me at least, option 2 does a lot more for me than option 1. I guess you could say it focus more on TUT but while the reps are slwower it’s nothing insane like 30+ seconds per rep.[/quote]
not per rep, its 30+ per set i believe. But i get what you’ve said in your other replies, and do the same thing for the most part, work on the “neural” connection, focusing in on which muscles im supposed to be using for a lift, and using them. Suppose i’ll just keep on doin’ what i’m doin since it sounds like i’ve found a decent plan. thanks way
I have followed the same “heavy” lifts for the better part of a year, picking one of the two per week/day in my 5-day split (chest,legs,back,legs,arms)
BB bench, and DB bench for upperbody push
Lat pull/ Pull ups upper body pull
Squat/ Deads lower body
Is there a need to “change” the exercise? I mean, should i be picking a different exercise to base my day off of? for instance, I’d pick DB bench then do a bunch of upper body push/pull accessories for hypertrophy after doing heavy-sets of the DB bench. I know the body becomes “used” to a routine, by i feel like a bench variation is the foundation to an upperbody/chest workout… if that makes sense[/quote]
First off…so you don’t have a heavy movement programmed for horizontal pulling or vertical pushing? Your rhomboids/traps/shoulders aren’t going to magically take care of themselves man.
Secondly, yeah, you’re WAY overthinking things. As is SO often said here, but SO often ignored, at this point, you just need to be working on mastering the basics, that’s what you get the most results from. I have never ONCE worried about how long my muscles were under tension during any given set/workout, and I’ve done pretty well for myself.
