Hey vege, Do you do all of those sets in one session? 12 sets is a lot of sets. Is there a reason why you do many sets of small numbers of repetitions? Are you still doing the Armstrong program, these sets seem like you've moved away from it?
Looking good bro!
Hi, VeganResistance, thanks for the comment!
I think I follow the Armstrong program exactly. If I am wrong, someone please correct me!
This is what I found that program says:Day 4 Do the maximum number of training sets that you can accomplish. Rest 60 seconds
between each set. You do training sets until you fail to do a perfect training set. This day
can wind up being the longest training day as you continue with the program because you
will find it easy to do lots of training sets. If you can do more than nine training sets,
increase by one repetition next week.
My training set was 3 pull ups (3 repetitions, right?) first two weeks, and this week I increased it to 4 repetitions. Yesterday, I was able to do 12 sets and during the 13th set I failed to do all 4 repetitions correctly, so I stopped. I assume this is correct, according to program?
This is what the training set is: Training Sets Training sets are easy to define, but require some experimentation to determine for the
individual participating in the program. A training set has a specified number of
repetitions. That means that one individual may have seven repetitions in his training set,
but another could have more or less. The key to determining the proper number of
repetitions in a training set comes on day 3. You must perform 9 training sets that day. If
you only do 12 repetitions on a max effort set, then your training set would probably only
be 1-3 repetitions. Remember, it is much more important that you complete all nine sets
than doing an extra rep and only completing 6 or 7 sets. Day 3 calls for you to do nine
training sets. Adjust your training set so that you can complete this routine properly.
The best gauge for the number of repetitions in a training set comes on day 4. If you
successfully complete day 3, try increasing the number of repetitions in your training set
by one when you do day 4. If you complete at least 9 training sets, then you know your
training set should be that higher number. If you do less than nine sets, stick with the
number you used for day 3.
This means that I should increase the number of repetitions in my training set from 4 to 5 next week. Getting better
