you explained and mentioned the triple progression model a few times in your latest articles. I have been using this model for a few years give or take. As I understand it, you recommend it for the main lifts which are the exercises I use it for.
Now, I’m often being told that I should not go so close to failure (I don’t fail but 0 Reps in the tank) on the big lifts which is what you recommend often as well. But I don’t see how these two would fit together.
How can I use triple progression WITHOUT going near failure on the bench/squat/press? If I leave one or two reps in the tank I would have gotten 6 | 6 | 6 instead of 6 | 5 | 4. So how would I progress like that? I can’t objectively judge if I have the same number of reps in the tank every time when I’m under the bar.
I’ve been struggling to combine these two concepts for a few years now and it takes a toll on my recovery. I often have severe workout hangovers after squat days (which I guess is normal to a degree).
I’m a 2A actor according to your test if that changes anything.
Thank for your time in advance.
