What is this kind of squat called?

It's the one where you have to pick up the barbell from the floor then put it on your back.

Thanks!

Re: Methods of developing strength

That's like saying you can't isolate a muscle. Of course everything works together, but you can change the emphasis. It's the same as with the type of hypertrophy. You will get both by training one of them, but you can change the emphasis of the training. That's what I meant, stu, but I'm not certa...

Re: Methods of developing strength

Kenny, I think you misunderstood my post. I was saying that you need to train the corresponding muscles and nervous system to achieve maximum strength in a particular movement/exercise. What I'm curious about is, what if your training is biased to the neurological side (near max). BTW about the myof...

Methods of developing strength

That's probably not the most correct title but here's what I want to talk about: Since your strength in a particular exercise is both neurological and muscular, it would be logical to seek an optimal point of a repetition number where the two meet, or use a variety of rep ranges that cover both like...

Re: Too hight heart rate?

I got it from Wikipedia, stu. Yeah I know that anybody can edit the page. For example an endurance runner's rates will typically be lower due to the increased size of the heart required to support the exercise, while a sprinter's rates will be higher due to the improved response time and short durat...

Re: Too hight heart rate?

BTW is it true that sprinters have higher heart rate than normal or sprinting/anerobic training elevates your resting heart rate above normal level?

Re: Your percentage and reps guidelines

I'm with Ken on the volume stuff being mental and quite difficult to quantify... I mean rest time between reps can make diff.. When is rest not considered within the set? 5x10 empty bar wears my fat butt out. True, rest between sets is a big factor. That's why BB training is so exhausting for me (m...

Re: Your percentage and reps guidelines

I realized that there's a fallacy in my question, I didn't take into account the fiber composition in a muscle group and how many muscle groups are involved in the exercise performed ("compound' vs "isolation"). For exercises that uses muscles rich in type I/IIa fibers, of course the reps can be hig...

Re: Your percentage and reps guidelines

Actually, I made this thread to see how many reps in a set people can complete in a certain percentage of 1RM.

Re: Your percentage and reps guidelines

Cool chart, stu. So it turns out that I'm not that far off but I think the chart is based on 1 set.

Re: Your percentage and reps guidelines

I'll be surprised if there are very many people who can give a simple answer to that. 4x3 @ 90% seems pretty intense to me. I do 90 for a set of 3 once per cycle. Yeah doc 4 sets would be intense. But I often do 3x3 @ 90% with long rest between sets. It doesn't have to be exact just an approximatio...

Re: Your percentage and reps guidelines

Hmm... sorry it seems that I wasn't clear with what I mean. I want to know for X reps in Y sets, what percentage of 1RM do you use?

Your percentage and reps guidelines

For around 4 sets, I use:

3 reps: 90% of max/1RM
5 reps: 80%
10 reps: 60%

Obviously with higher number of sets, the weight used must be lower (smaller percentage of 1RM) and vice versa. What about you?
