B/c there are so many people on this board that have shown interest in my P, RR, S program, I thought I'd give everyone a few tips to help you receive more benfits from the routine...
-With power week we are trying to lift heavy weights to stimulate high threshold muscle fibers. This is best done using compound exercises like bench presses, bent rows, squats, deadlifts, etc. Don't use isolation exercises this week.
-With power week try to lift explosively. Control the negative portion of each rep and then EXPLODE the weight to the top. It won't actually move very fast, but try as hard as you can!
-On power week you should rest a little longer between sets. We want as much ATP/CP recovery as possible between sets and that can take as long as 4-5 minutes. So, in between sets, take a seat and relax...just prepare your mind for the next set!
-Of all the weeks it is the power week in which you can add an extra set here of there if you feel you need it. Multiple sets of low reps are very good for mass gains.
More tips to come!
