As a few of you guys know this is what I am currently employing and I am wondering what you guys think about it. I got chris mason's opinion already. And a few others.
What is is basically splitting up the bodyparts in each workout into light and heavy.
LIGHT: basically going 3-4 reps shy of failure, and a lighter weight. Just intended to stimulate the musclegroup without taxing the CNS. Rep range is 5-8.
HEAVY: basically going to muscular failure, and as heavy as possible. Intended for maximal strength, and thats about it. Rep range is 1-5. Basically for maximal strength, to failure.
2 weeks of heavy/light workouts would look like this:
Pull: heavy back, light biceps
Push: light chest, heavy biceps
Legs: heavy quads, light hamstrings
Pull: light back, heavy biceps
Push: heavy chest, light biceps
Legs: light quads, heavy hamstrings
What do you guys think about this? So far I REALLY enjoy it and I think that its going to be very effective. Light sessions are more geared toward hypertrophy and TUT and heavy sessions are more geared towards maximal strength.
