at the moment I'm doing a program looking like this:
- just 1 set per exercise
- 10 repetitions (last 2 or 3 reps should be really hard to do)
- slow movement
- focus/concentration on the trained muscle itself and the overall body-tension
- (full body) program done every second day
(Some time ago I've done a max weight programm with 2 sets each exercise and up to 5 reps)
So what do you think of it?
I have done similar workouts that you describe above. Sometimes I use a 10/10 rep count on each rep. I find that these types of workouts have value.
Currently, however, I have returned to more traditional sets, reps, etc. Currently I do 6-8 exercises, hit the major body parts, and use a three set, 8-12 rep scheme. I seem to be improving my body composition, whcih makes me happy.
