I’ve read the book through and parts of it multiple times and cannot figure something out. I must be missing something that is obvious to everyone else. My question is: Using the “Huge in a Hurry” program how do you know what weight to use?
Say I am doing a “heavy” routine. Every exercise is done for 25 total reps w/ 60 secs rest between sets. Chad says to use a weight of 4-6 reps max. What does that mean? He discusses the concept but I cannot put it together with lifting speed.
Say I can lift 100 lbs fast for 4-6 reps with no speed or form changes.
And I can lift 120 lbs fast for 2-3 reps but have some speed or form changes to get to 4-6 reps.
And I can lift 140 lbs for 4-6 reps slowly before failure.
Which weight should I use for the “heavy” routines?
And when I do a heavy day, do lift fast or normal speed? In the book he says there are two ways to build muscle: lift heavier weights (assuming normal speed I guess) or lift lighter weights fast. And he says to alternate these types of routines every other workout.
Does this imply that on his heavy and super-heavy days you should lift at a normal speed and on the medium and light days you should lift fast? If you lift at normal speed on heavy days, does that mean you measure your reps max using normal speed and not fast speed? If so (using the numbers above) I would use 140 lbs and not 100 lbs. on a heavy day.
Have any of you figured this out?
