I was thinking about a new concept of workouts for strength.
Let’s say you work each bodypart with 8 sets.
Would it be a good idea to use one of the exercices to test if we gained some strength. We do one set at the beginning of the workout to test if we got stronger and we adjust the rest of the workout depending of whether we got stronger or not.
The measures that could be taken would be:
- stop the workout and wait a few more days to let the nervous system supercompensate. This is based on the premise that we didn’t get stronger because the cns did not have the time to supercompensate. We have to let it supercompensate RIGHT NOW, otherwise we loose the previous workout.
- change the exercises, tempos right away during the same exercise. So we would go to the gym with 2 alternate routines, one for the case where we got stronger, one if we don’t.
Has anyone ever tried something like that? What approach do you think would be the most likely to work?
