Probably a stupid question. I watched the guidance videos but just waned more clarification.
But after finishing full body and training to failure in the last 4 weeks, I now want to go onto half body 2.0.
I just can’t wrap my head around starting at the phase 1 and training in 2-3 reps in reserve. My head almost tells me “less muscle building” if this makes sense? Or does this not make sense because there is more volume.
Would you be able to please explain like I’m 5 lol.
Almost all programs start out slow if im not incorrect to work on the movements. And True 2 RiR is pain so i think it shouldn’t be a issue , you could also do extra pump work if that’s what you like at end of sessions.But i would also love to hear the coaches thoughts
Thanks for the response coaches, both different responses but definitely something to look at. Based on my learning and research, am I also right in saying that training to 0 rir is only just a tool (as Joe says) just like tempo, rest etc that can be used and modified in different ways?
We see the research say muscle building occurs from 3 rir up anyway so we are still promoting growth and the difference is basically insignificant compared to 0 rir for the average person?
Also I’m getting a bit long winded here, if you answer bonus, but do you recommend deloads or recovery weeks at the end of the 12 weeks before starting a new program?
