I agree. I'd also like to see how you would program this. How would you cycle the daily max and down sets? Do you have a set cycle that you use? Do you go by feel each day? Do you have percentages for the daily max and planned reps for the down sets?

I feel like there is an art to manipulating sub max singles and reps in anger. Probably only suited to each person, but I am curious about ideas in this area and wondering how you discovered what works for you. I feel like this would work for me, but haven't found the key to understanding this or using it properly.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
