    5 sets 12 reps

    If someone told me to do 5 sets of Bench, w/ 12 reps per set, should I reach failure or close to it on each set and keep lowering the weight to get the 12 reps, or pick a steady weight that is easy the first 3 sets and challenging to failure the last 2? This is with 45-60 sec rest in-between.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    Because it's good for shocking the muscle, I rotate the volume and reps I do. And also because not everyone responds well to low reps.

    5 sets of 12 reps is quite a bit...unless its one shocker program. I would warm up one set, and go to failure after the warmup.

    So are you saying to do 2 sets? One warm-up and then one working set that you go to failure?

    Great, Thank you. How many sets do you usually do per exercise day?

    I don't think a Canadian needs to be telling someone to speak proper English, Eh?

    I believe what was said was that J'BO, the man, has a very good routine that will help out rock4832 a lot. I also gather that this person has come up with this through their very observant reading of J'BO's postings so you know it's some good advice.

    i was trying to say that "j bo" has a very good routine for gaining mass. "Rock 4832" can get some very good advice from his routine. i myself has a routine similar to "J BO's"
    NOW U PEOPLE UNDERSTAND

    I guess I'm the only one who pays any attention, I can see from yoru avi and various posts that you are a female, but can you see that I was just picking at Ahsan's posts (read them both, next time I try to be funny I'll type slower... )
