I just got the app and very new to HC . I’m going to a 1 RIR sometimes closer to failure for each set. But I find the workouts to be very light on volume. And maybe this is just what I’m not used to in my normal trading regimen. I feel like to workouts are short and not stimulating me alot. I did see the video that explained how the first few weeks were for working up to higher intensity and volume as the weeks progress. Is it recommended to stick to the exact workout or is it ok to add some additional excercises to the end of maybe a different body part. Say triceps on delt focus day?
Thank you for the response. I will definitely check out the videos. But I do understand what you mean by less is sometimes better . Thanks again. I’ll check them out for sure
If you want a non-coaches opinion on this too, what he means by “less is sometimes better” is muscle growth comes from recovery, not the training session itself. 90% of people probably came from high volume type training with probable poor execution and not close to failure translating it to “bullshit volume” where you can’t actually recover from the workouts, and you don’t actually train hard enough and progress to grow anyways. Now the coaches and I don’t know your recovery rate, so you could potentially recover from it, but if sometimes getting proper sleep or nutrition is hard, or you work a blue collar job or something like that. As someone who’s been on this app for 6 months now, I would say switching to low volume and just going to true failure/maybe RIR 1, I’ve noticed changes and friends/family have to. I’ve got bigger, while also losing some weight. It’s not for everyone, but I like it. Hope this helps
