1 why do inclines when the opinion on this board seems to be there is no need?
2 why so high reps? 25 for calves and 20 on squats seems extreme
3 why is day 3 in such strange order?
I was taught"(on here) that one should order the exercises in order of weight used starting heaviest.
why dips AFTER curls?
btw im not going to try this routine (at least not nnow)
its for a friend (who promised to get his ass on this site)
It's Maki's routine.
i beleive he based in on some poulquin methods, hence why bodyparts are switched for each exercise eg chest and back exercises are done alternatively.
1. I have no idea. I wouldn;t bother with them, but it's Maki's routine. He was prolly just trying to keep the incline crew happy.
2. they're 20-rep squats. hence, why you do 20 reps haha
leg muscles generally respond better to higher reps so that is the idea behind 20-rep squats.
calves respond good to all sorts of rep ranges. I do a set of lower reps and then a set of higher reps [in the 20 range]. It's there cause it works.
3. like i said earlier, it's alternating: tricep exercise then a bicep exercise then tricep exercise then a bicep exercise.
one more and 5000 posts chicken
Did you read the FAQ?
If you did then let me know.
what a bout wbb 1 for shoulders, is the shoulder press in the rack behind or in front of the neck?
and also, the standing bb rows after deads are a killer on the back, this is standing right, not a machine exercise?
thanks, I am going to get into the WBB2 routine soon, I liked the first one and the next one looks cool too. I know it is gonna be a killer.
damn Chicken Daddy how on earth did you get so many posts??
I was gonna compete with you but i guess its all over now (unless i post like 100 posts everyday for the next 50 days!!!)
