Repeat until Failure or near Failure.

Folk's performance differs.

Generally you'll get 7 to 12 reps the first day...

If you progress from a max of 7 Reps to a max of 12 reps—you will be considerably stronger.

{12 is generally the target Rep, so it is time to add a bit of weight...}


Comments?

Sounds interesting. I've done other types of what I would call rest-pause. I've probably done this variation too, but maybe so long in the past that I've forgotten. Sounds like my sort of thing - I'd like to give this a go on a whole bunch of exercises. Thanks for posting.

Cool

Bend the Bar...

Upon giving it more thought, you're right.

Isn't that what SETS are—You pause for awhile between them...

Okay.

But this particular form of "Rest-Pause" gets far less attention than some of the myriad other Forms.

Ramrod:

We did switch exercise routines every few weeks.

I mean when I first walked into the Gym at 17, I asked the Owner:

"I just recently got to 200 Pounds on the Bench. How long until I might expect to make 300 Pounds?"

"Quite possibly never. Few people ever develop that kind of strength."

And at 31 I still hadn't gotten to 300.

I'm talking about a life-time stall for the rest of one's training career.

In retrospect, I gained the most Strength when I was living in other towns, working at other Gyms and Ignoring Good Training Doctrine.

As I say, the Gym's Philosophy was that very few people have the good genes to improve their strength or physique very much at all...

Now I'm older and more open to new ideas...

And I'm willing to concede that Maybe Arthur Jones wasn't right about Everything...

But still, the best Scientific minds utilize the Axiom:

"Never believe the results of an Experiment until it is Confirmed by Theory."

While many others have seemingly impressive results—I'm not sure if any of them have Internally Consistent Theories to Prove the Results are real.

A Theoretical Physicist wouldn't be satisfied by mere Results without benefit of Theory.

But like I say, in my training career, making weekly progress on an exercise for several consecutive weeks was something that only happened five or six times in my training career.

So those exercises are very precious to me.

It was more like:

Move an exercise up 2.5 pounds every 6 or 7 workouts, when at long last, the target Rep is reached...

Back to the grindstone and hope that the next 2.5 pound increase won't take any longer.

Did you keep a Log and review it, from the age of 17-31?

There is no point in Keeping a log... If you never review it and make needed Changes or Look back and try to beat yourself Everyweek or two.... Anyone can write a workout done in a notebook, but very few know why or how to take full advantage of it...This is something I learned with training DoggCrapp. Along with another way of rest/pause.
