I’m training for strength and doing westside. I’m using the “old school method” westside used for many years which is basically.
1x5 @ 50%
1x3 @ 60%
1x2 @ 70%
1x1 @ 80%
1x1 @ 90%
1x1 @ 95%
1x1 @ 100%
I think that when doing this with the ME Bench and Squat/DL. I’m kinda burning out cause on my DE days for bench I’m using 4x6 and 5x5 and I think this is pushing it too much.
I’m looking for some alternatvies for a while like 3x3, 5x2, and such. COuld anyone tell me what percentages I would use for 3x3, and 5x2 and how to wave in for 3 weeks (as in what percentage should I use). Also If I want to work in the 3-5 rep range how many sets should I be doing and what should the percentage of the weight be??
Also would it be benfecial to do something like 5/3/1, 5/3/1 for a ME day??
