here ya go OP, I’ll just copy paste my last post on it. It’s pretty straight forward.
Thank ya sir, I’ll try not to derail this thread, but I really don’t lift all that heavy, I means my rows are 275-315, and DL I’ll do reps with 315-405. Now I can go much heavier obviously, but my form is compromised. I always aim for peak contraction and slow negative, I follow a lot of dorian yates principles in that regard.
Pretty much working up to 1 top set of 6-10 reps and reaching failure on each exercise. Back day is always, machine pullover, then lat pulldown, BB rows, deadlift (I stop negative at 2 inches below knee and pull back up) and cable rows. Hope that helps.
EDIT: But yah OP, my training has pretty much changed completely since the last time pics were posted. Lots more emphasis on really hitting the target muscle, not so much concerned with weight that it compromises my form, and then voila! Lots of new muscle lol
Also 3 way split, so each muscle is hit every 3rd day. Pretty much everything Dorian does with a few things from DC and Phil Hernon thrown in.[/quote]
You’re lifting lighter but are you still focusing on trying to progress as often as possible as long as you keep good form, focus on contraction, etc…?
Yes, although I am very careful that the progression is actually a result of getting stronger not from altering form, so it goes a little slower.[/quote]
I agree with your philosophy and think that this a very important concept that is diffilcult for poeple to not only understand but to actually use it in their everyday training. I still get caught up in trying to ever increase my reps and /or weight by loosening up my form, and then have to humble myself and drop the weight to start over.
