Hello everyone, I've seen many threads and looked into many routines that use ME/DE work and I'm about to start using it after an initial RE strength building phase. I see that with ME, you build up to your max and do it three sets, 1-2 reps as your first exercise. With DE, for example, if you're doing deadlifts, it is recommended to pull submaximal weights 8setsx1rep, or so, as your first exercise. My question: what do the sets consist of after your initial "true" DE/ME set? I see a lot of consistent weights and reps following (5x5@150 for example). Should you not do multiple DE or ME sets after the first? This confuses me a little, I don't get why it looks like routines go back into RE efforts after the inital 8x2 DE or 1x3 ME exercise to start.
I also plan to lift like this: ME upper - DE lower - DE upper - ME lower, repeat...with plenty of rest of course, does this make sense?
Thanks for your help.
