    Does it work: power week, rep week, shock week






    First of all, are you supposed to alternate these one after the other? Same exercises? How many reps during each week? And what to do exactly on shock week?

    Thanks in advance.

    In plain english, its works! Best routine I've ever done and just finished RR legs, those damn single leg press's always get me heh. It is highly recomended around these parts.

    I just did the same. Downloaded Preacher's version, the single leg press's are AWESOME! I was thinking that was going to be the worst, it was totally worth it.

    I just started it recently. I'm only into my first shock week. However, I remain sore almost constantly. That is a good sign to me. Unfortunately, I'm cutting right now. I probably won't be gaining any LBM, so I can't say for sure how well it works.

    i am in my rest week but got antsy and wanted to lift today so i went in and did a bench test. my bench went up 20 pounds from the last time i tested it b4 i started this program. i went thru 3 3week cycles and now my bench for the 1 rep max went from 205 to 225 which is a big gain for me and i'm quite happy with it. i'm cutting right now too so a lot of my weights have gone down, but in the grand scheme i'm loving the gains. and shock week is REDIC!!!! OOOF!!!

    With all the peeps proppin this regime up i think i might try it, do you keep the same tempo on the lifts for all three stages, and at what tempo do you go at, 4/2/2?

    For power week I try to do a controlled negative and an explosive positive: 3/0/1

    For rep range week I try to do a controlled motion the entire time: 3/0/3

    For shock week I try to do a rhythmic, yet controlled, motion: 1/0/1

    Gopro himself said that this isn't something to worry about too much unless you are pretty advanced. However, I think he did recommend tempos similar to the ones I mentioned.

    i think i am gonna jump on the p/rr/s bandwagon starting next week, i'm getting all giddy just thinking about it, i'm sicking of never getting over my 160 lbs plateau, for some reason i always stall when i get this weight.

    hey i have an additional question ... when they mention all these rep ranges like 8-10 etc etc .. does that mean with a spot or without a spot?

    i've done the workout without a spot. when i do have a spot the spotter is there just to make sure i dont kill myself, not to help me do assisted reps. thats just me.

    I only really try to go until failure during shock week. It's too stressful on your central nervous system to go to failure every training session.

    Oh, and by the way, I think rep range week is just as bad, if not worst, than shock week if you use a slow tempo.
