I may have touched briefly upon the subject in previous posts. After having persisted on 30-10-30 for two months (excercising every 4:th day) I came to a stall in both reps and weights, after having had good development. I suspect a case of overtraining, but do not allow myself only excercising once a week (scared of losing momentum and the good habit). Having returned to 4 sec pos and 4 sec neg reps (thus slightly increasing the weight) for 2 weeks - the progress has returned!
My question is how soon/often it’s advisable to shift protocol, in your experience? Should I have stayed on the 30-10-30 regime once weekly? I may next head for trying out 30-30-30 on a couple of excercises, just to get the feel of it, and then (when the 4 sec strategy comes to a halt) add it to all or most excercises.
Another question: Is the expected gains (hypertrophy) with 30-10-30 similar with 30-30-30? I have ordered your book upon the subject, but it hasn’t arrived yet.
Have a nice weekend you all!
