Hey, followed your posts over past few years as you seem to be very similar to me strength/experience-wise and quite dedicated. Would you mind going into more detail about this (ramping vs straight sets, how much volume per bodypart, etc.)? I am currently running BBB, but a program with this kind of flexibility is something I’ve never done before and it’s quite interesting. I would like to go back to some volume after I’ve feel like I’ve milked this strength phase for all it’s worth. Also, have you seen good results from this style of training?
I like the 3x a week frequency, as I believe I grow more from it, and also the idea that I can rotate out exercises so that I can learn more about what works for me and what doesn’t.
yeah dude, I can answer any questions ya want.
I personally do my sets kind of pyramid style when I train with this? My goal is to increase reps or weight on the first set, and after that do whatever I need to do to stay in the rep range and adhere to prescribed rest periods. So doing 4 sets of 5-7 with 90s rest would be like
If that makes sense. Volume, I manipulated in the same BBB does, adding sets or decreasing rest for a 3-6 week phase, then have a period of longer rest/less sets.
I personally like using short rest for the low reps sets, so like sets of 5 for 60-90s rest, and longer rest with the higher rep stuff, like 2 mins for 15 rep Squats or something.
I personally found I made a lot of progress with my back and legs on this program, but I feel if you have ‘stubborn’ body parts, this program can kind of neglect it. I am able to basically eat a ton and still stay very lean with this kind of training, more so then other kinds of training.
Sorry if that’s not clear, if you need more elaboration or clarification I’d be happy to provide it. Maybe ask in my log in the training section, as to not hijack this too much lol
