Started at a powerlifting gym, question on my coaches routine
So i started my powerlifting journey last week. I like the gym, prowlers, monolifts, platforms, bumper plates, the works. Im an intermediate lifter that finished starting strength, madcow and texas method. So he gave me my routine for chest and for the assistance exercises its has alot of volume (to me).
Like 18 reps for dumbell presses, 15 reps for dumbell rows and like 50 reps for tricep push downs. Mind you ive never really gone past 5 reps with my previous programs so to me it seems like muscle endurance, not strength.
Is this how its done? High volume for powerlifting? I thought strength was done in the lower rep ranges. Or am i just being a total pussy?
