Keep in mind that there are tons of ways to get stronger, might take some time to find what is right for you.
So JB in your opinion doing the work sets that I outlined above along with say 3 AMAP sets in the 60-70% range for assistance work is "putting the cart before the horse"?

I ran the Reeves program for quite a while, and to be honest I hated the 8-12 rep range work! Can't say if it's my body that doesn't respond to that range or my mind is too lazy for that rep range haha!
