This is what I did this week for decline tilt press from pins, I lowered my tilt to 2" from 4" so 1RM went down a bit but it felt great
- could you tell me if this is an acceptable method? Thanks!
Ramp to 1RM: 135x3, 185x3, 225x2, 250x1, 275x1, 300x1, 325x1, 350x1, 370x1, 385x1
Clusters: 345x3, x3, x4 (rest was just resetting for the next rep, 2 mins rest between clusters)
HDL: 315x3 - I did 8 sets with 60 seconds rest between sets.
This type of HDL felt incredible for me - it’s a combination of power and a bit of strength endurance. I noticed that performance actually increased into sets 5-7. My pump after this mega-set was phenomenal.
