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?
Have you done this exact workout before? If so, did you complete it?
your top set of 6+2+2+2 should be the only thing that matters on HCT-12. Look to progress on that.
H: 5'7" W:185
Goals: 495 -315 -585

I was just wondering if the first set of 295 x 6 is necessary. I guess what I'm hearing is "probably not"?? I think.... BTW I'm 50 years old so maybe I'm just overdoing things.
I think in the past I figured more was better. Maybe not. Still not clear.
