I am kind of using a HCT scheme on my squats and I wonder if I am over-killing myself.
Warmup - 3 min bike
135 x 6
205 x 6
240 x 6
270 x 6
295 x 6
295 x 6 -2-2-2
So that is 18 reps of 295. Would I get the same benefit if I dropped the first set of 295 x 6?
I think I will try a week without that set to see if it works. I am so exhausted after all the reps that I can barely focus on my other exercises (Calf Press and Rack Pulls).
What do you think? Am I gaining anything with 6 extra reps or have I already recruited enough muscle to grow just doing the 295 x 6 -2-2-2 as a last set?
