I have a question about Chad Waterbury’s “Bodybuilding’s Next Frontier” routine. I have been reading some of his articles in which he suggest the trainee to select a given load (ex. 80% of 1RM) and perform as many sets as it takes to reach a desired rep goal (ex. 25). Therefore the trainee may do 5x5, 4x6, 6x4 with the 80% of 1RM load. This makes a lot of sense to me and I wish to try this in my training.
So, the WHFS Routine calls for specific sets and reps. Would it be okay t use the load Chad recommends but perform as many sets needed to hit the rep goal?
Day 1 - 4x6 @ 8RM
Can I perform as many sets needed to reach 24 reps using a 8RM load. This may be 5x5, 6x4, or 4x6 depending on many factors.
