Ozzy, isn't your main focus weight loss? If it is, you'd be better doing higher reps and shortening your rests. Gets the heart rate up and sheds those pounds. Training for strength is all well and good, but it won't have the effect on body composition a higher volume approach. High rep squats with low rest are particularly good. You could do something masochistic like 8x8 or 10x10 with a minute, minute and a half rest. Feel the burn.


According to the site, that's a myth http://www.exrx.net/WeightTraining/Myths.html


try it, jump on an 8x8 or a 10x10 and see what happens

intense metabolic activities like complexes


that's essentially how I feel about 10x10s or 8x8s. Revs up the metabolism like a furnace.

my philosophy is: do whatever Vince Gironda did. That guy knew his stuff. Studies be damned!

I've stalled on my bench for 2 years at 300ibs and I finally made improvements in 3 months to 330 after I dropped my pressing volume to 3x5 or less.
