i just want a good discussion on this program. basically you do two sets of an exercise for 5 or less reps (depending on the weight could be 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 reps, theres no hard rule on that) but you drop the weight by 10% on the second set.
while two sets is not normally enough the program also advocates training the same lift up to five times a week. but no more. you could train ever other day, once every three days, etc. you're sapposed to take rest based on how you feel. although i think it also says you want 24 hours of rest between workouts of the same lift. theoretically you could train 7 days a week, doing deadlifts on monday, then bent presses on tuesday and alternating like that.
the program generally consists of only deadlift variations and side press variations, but you could do it with different exercises.
I think there on to somthing with the two sets done more frequently during a week. what do you guys think?
I don't understand why Pavel wants you to drop the weight 10% on the second set though. doesn't make sense to me.
also this program is sapposed to be fore building strength without hypertrophy, "wirey strength" etc.
what's good here, whats nonsense? alot of people perscribe to this type of training and seem to have great success. Adam T Glass for one.
