Also a question for the Your better half program. Since you repeat the exercise a second time in the week, do you lift the same numbers from the previous workout?or do you treat it as it’s own day in the week and progress weekly as opposed to progressing each session if that makes sense
Also for these upper lower programs, can you switch it to where we start off with lower instead upper? I also notice that Bryces has less of an arm focus where Your better half has you doing two arm exercises for biceps and triceps being the dips, hammer curls, tricep extensions, and bicep curls. Bryces has 1 exercise for the bicep and tricep at the end and it looks like a chest and back isolation focus such as the flys and pullovers are in place of the reduced arm focus. With looking at this, maybe bryces would work better for me to work on overall body size as opposed to putting more time to do arm work. I guess you can argue big arms could give off a the perception that you are bigger, but what are your guys thoughts on my thought process?March 21, 2022 at 10:46 am in reply to: Reaching exhaustion before muscle failure on squat movements #295657
Definitely makes sense. Unfortunately I workout at home and I don’t own a hack squat. I guess I’ll just push through it and hopefully it gets betterMarch 20, 2022 at 2:39 pm in reply to: Reaching exhaustion before muscle failure on squat movements #294800
Also, would the different approach I mentioned defeat the purpose of pure hypertrophy?
Got it. One last question, should I switch to the new program whenever I want to or should I put in a recovery/ deload week before I hop onto a new one? I’m not at the end of the Terrence program but I’m at the end of one of the weeks and looking to switch.
Question for Joe’s response, if I were to just take a RIR 0 approach as soon as possible, after the acclimation period, would I do RIR 0 starting from week 1 of the program for the recommended sets and reps? Or go into the block that has the reps and sets that are prescribing the RIR 0 (week 9), since I would assume the reps and sets kind of get changed with the new RIR.
Thanks for the perspectives guys!February 22, 2022 at 1:15 pm in reply to: Incline and High Incline press not progressing but other exercises are? #266999
Nooooo. Idk why it’s not posting into the training category…January 6, 2022 at 3:33 pm in reply to: Alternative for single lat pulldown with free weights? #214768
I workout from home and don’t have a cable, so I am doing chins using rings.
I feel the angle for chinups on rings would not be the same no?January 6, 2022 at 3:25 am in reply to: Alternative for single lat pulldown with free weights? #214112
I have same issue rn. Been fixing it recently. Just doing weaker first and doing same reps with stronger leg.
Thanks for the tip
I believe that it’s more important to reach muscular failure than the recommended reps, the rep range is something that you should aim for with the weight that you are lifting. If you go over the range, good, next time up the weight, if you are below the rep range, then next time lower the weight. But always go to failure
What can we expect for the following set? Would you expect to see more reps out of the second set here as well even though we exerted more energy?
