I’ve been a High Frequency guy for quite a while. In the interest of changing it up, however, I decided to do a minimum of three weeks of the “Shut Up Program” as a basic introduction into a split program. Here’s a link to the program if you need it:
This post isn’t to debate the program, that’s not the point.
Anyways, I did the “size” program in terms of reps. As I expected, during the first two weeks, I was horribly sore after ever lifting day. Whatever body part I had done that day was extremely sore for a few days afterwards. I’m now in the middle of day three, and I just noticed something today…I’m not sore…not at all.
My question is if this is likely because my body has gotten used to the same lifts for three weeks in a row or if the lower rep range in weeks three (sets of five) just isn’t getting the job done. By the way, my training age is around a decade (although only a couple years out of a football coach’s program), so we’re not talking about newbie soreness here.
