Tonight I did something very different that kind of goes against everything I've believed as far as lifting goes. I was, however, inspired by an article I read by Bill Luttrell - a 60's/70's bodybuilder. Just a lot of ramping sets for a few different exercises per bodypart. I've known for some time that bbers in the 60's to 80's ramped their sets....if they listed 5x8 it didn't mean 5 sets of 8 with the same hard weight...the previous 4 sets were basically warmups. I had dismissed this "ramping" method some time ago feeling that the earlier sets were just wasted energy that just exhausted you for the top set but I've been wrong alot so I decided to give it a shot.....

Front Squat 135x8, 185x8, 225x8, 245x(5), 265x(2) SS with
Seated Laterals 25x12, 30x12, 35x12, 40x(7), 45x(3)

Deadlifts 225x8, 275x8, 315x8, 365x(8), 405x(3) SS with
BNP/Pin Press 135 x8, 155x8, 175x8, 195x(8), 215x(3)

SLDL 135x8, 185x8, 225x8, 275x8, 315x(6), 345x(3)

Leg Press 400x12, 490x12, 580x12, 630x(10), 650x(8) SS with
Face-Bench DB Press 40x8, 45x8, 50x8, 55x8, 60x(8)

*Workout was quick-paced and winding. The rest time came up quicker than expected on the supersetted exercises once I finished the weight change. The fatigue was slightly more than I anticipated. For example on front squats I got a set of 5 with about my 8RM or 5x5 weight due to fatigue from the previous sets. Then taking only about 3 mins to setup on deadlifts and BNP before starting my sets.....I wound up with 3 reps with a weight I could normally for 8 for sure after front squats and the warmup sets. On the other hand despite working up to a set of 2-3 I ended using a 5-6 RM on them so I can see where the 90% CNS rule wouldn't necessarily apply to them.

Messed up workout. WAYYY hungover today and didn't sleep worth a crap. Could barely stay awake but went thru with it anyway. Bicep tendons were annoyed on the last set of preachers...oh well. Took too long of a rest on DB Bench and WG Chins..wife called me our son was bleeding. Turned out to be okay. Got thru it anyway.

Everything felt good except front squats. Very humid in my basement and started having the "slippage" issues on my 3rd set. I guess the general idea here will be to up weights when I get another rep on my failure sets. On front squats I gained a rep only on my last set so I'll progress when I get 6 and 3. PR's on pretty much everything.
