As the title implies, I am taking a break for a while from heavy lifting, and focusing on more volume at lower intensities. I plan on just taking the 4 rep sets that I have been doing and just doing that for everything, working from 5 to 8 sets of 4 reps and then adding 5 pounds per exercise and going back to 5 sets of 4 reps.
I've just been really tired lately, not sore at all, just super tired, and I think I probably am in the beginning stages of frying my CNS from the heavy singles I've been doing. It was working, but I was increasingly fatigued. So I am still going to keep up the high frequency, just hopefully by doing the 4 rep sets I will be taxing my muscles more than my CNS, and as long as I stay away from failure, I should be ok.
Keeping the same exercises with the exception of adding back in my beloved dips and upright rows, and replacing the regular bench press with a close grip bench instead.
Yesterdays workout followed the new guidelines, but it's in my old "quest for 405" journal. These workouts will be in this one. IF I ever get the urge to go back to my quest, I will revisit that journal.
