I'm currently expermenting with a strength training system used by
Russian strength athletes, particularly weight lifters to gain enormous
strength in the overall body.
Low reps with heavy weight is emphasized and 3-5 minutes rest in
between each set is encouraged.
I'll give a link in a future post for all the details of how and why this
system works and it's all backed by science. I'm trying this workout
for 3 months and record my progress.
2 sets- 3 reps, 241.2 lbs.
1 set- 1 rep, 250.4 lbs.
Note: Rested 3 minutes in between each set.
Single arm side press:
3 sets- 3 reps, 45.8 lbs.
Note: Could have done a heavier weight but was trying to
perfect the correct technique.
3 sets- 3 reps, 70 lbs.
Notes: Several hours later I did some grip work with
various exercises. I really like this new system and I
like the logic and science behind it all.
Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!
