post #54091 of 57260

I remember reading something from this thread about mixing high rep with low rep sets. So if I'm squatting and benching 3x a week, usually with 3-4 sets of 5, should I use one of the days on high rep sets of like 3-4 sets of 10 with lower weight?

Variation is good, so yes, you want to train in different rep ranges. But you don't "need" to go as high as 10 reps. I very rarely do. It depends on your goal and how it fits into the rest of the program and every other variable in it.

 

Just chose a good existing program instead of making your own if you don't know what you are doing. I can almost guarantee that you will make better progress doing so if you use it correctly and are beyond your noob gains.

You also dont need to go as low as singles/doubles/triples depending on what you are trying to achieve. I dont think its too hard to make a decent program from scratch either.

Yes, that is obvious. I wrote that it depends on your goals, like everything else about your training.

 

Sure, a decent program is not very difficult to make. But if you want great result and results that continue to come once you have finished your noob gains, you are better off choosing an existing program. I can't see a reason not too, if you are not experienced with creating programs that work for well trained lifters.

I don't think I've ever gone 10 reps on any of the big lifts other than OHP and bench.

 

In other news, my buddy and former training partner before I took 2 years off totaled 1745 at 196, raw, while missing a deadlift at lockout and what should have been an easy squat.

 

Flirting with the idea of playing catch up.

My low back is feeling fine again.

Got some nsaids and switched to a standing desk at work and it solved itself in just two days. 

Went from hurting to walk to be able to squat and deadlift heavy pain free.

Can still feel it if I sit down for half an hour or so, but then I just do some mckenzie back exercises and its all good.

 

On the other hand, my knees now ache more from standing all day :confused:

Sitting all day is fucking terrible but I don't think standing all day is that much better :|

I would recommend training with a combination of aerobic, cardio workout and exercises of power and shape. I believe that this combination can achieve quick and long-term effect of good health and beautiful, slender lines. The fact is  that every form of exercise should be practiced a certain period of time to occur visible positive results, which will last for a longer period of time. Regular exercise and a balanced diet are the solution to the beautiful lines of your body and health.
