Finally reached my 4 weeks of maximum strength training. 3 to 6 reps with LOTS of weight. For some reason I was looking forward to this and started Sunday.
Leg press - 270 (warm up 10 reps 6 reps for the next 3 sets) 630,720,770 pounds + 5 other exercises
I went in this morning again and did Step Ups (like stepping up to a higher step stair with the leg at just under 90 degrees)
warm up 10 reps 6 reps for the next 4 sets - 110,150,170,190,200 pounds
After reviewing my "training bible" there is a mathematical calculation based on your weight for each of the heavy weight exercises and if you reach the high end of the range to increase the reps. Well, that means 510 pounds for the leg press and 160 pounds for the Step Up (I rounded up get slightly higher weight). Hummm, I was pushing this 20+ times earlier in the year.
I decided to send an email to Joe Friel to ask him about my dilemma. His response (very quick I might add) - "Add reps. Keep the load the same." Email #2 "Once you achieve the body weight multiplier weight, add reps not more load."
I guess I'll be spending a lot of time in the gym and only going once a week or something.
