Hello, for 2 years ive been working out and getting alot without any particular routine, doing my compound and stuff. Now I feel like i need a change and ive come across the HTC-12 routine. Ive read it and i decided to do it but i have a question that makes me confused a little bit.
See in the exemple: * Bar x 6 reps (warm-up)
* 135lbs x 1 (feel set)
* 185lbs x 1 (feel set)
* 225lbs x 1 (feel set)
* 240lbs x 6 (work set)
* 270lbs x 6 (work set)
* 300lbs x 6 (work set)
* 320lbs x 6 (work set)
* 340lbs x 6 (work set) This was the previous best but the last rep felt easy, so go for another set
* 350lbs x 6 (work set) Barely got the sixth rep.
Does that mean i must do this for every Bodypart/Movement / exercise? Also i forgot to mention that ill go for a 3 day split meaning ABA, BAB etc...
Like for exemple what ill do next week fo the official startup ill do:
Vertical Pulling = chin
Horizontal Pulling = db row
Horizontal Pressing = bench
Vertical Pressing = military press
Triceps Exercise = body dip
Quad dominant = squat
Hip dominant = dead
Calf Exercise = seated raise
Biceps Exercise = db curl
Abs = cable crunch
Vertical Pulling = blabla etc***
and EACH of these exercise ill have to do the whole feel set 3 time and 6 time the 6 rep thing. Doesnt it seems much like overtraining? I also feel like itll take me 3 hours to do it since i train with my father. Maybe i just have to feel it in real life and not on paper. I cant wait
That is just an example they give you. It's more your call. On the big lifts like squat, bench, dead lift I use less volume on ramping the weights up. The program is all about the final cluster set so you don't want to be taxed for that set.
