So this is what I did the following routine without taking any breaks except to rack or unrack weights
95 x 20
115 x 10
125 x 3
115 x 6
95 x 9
85 x 10
75 x 8
65 x 9
55 x 20
95 x 8
85 x 10
I found that lifting with no break at all really fatigues the muscles. I finally stopped doing sets when I could not even unrack the weight.
So WTF happened? Is this a good idea?
You should read a chapter in a book on how muscles work. Super Basically*, inb4 know it all fags, they squeeze together tightly and latch onto each other.
To unhook smoothly we need just the right amount of atp to be present. Atp is that thing creatine increases, im sure you heard of it.
If you dont have enough atp present shit tears up left and right in order to unhook itself and you have a ton of metabolic waste and inflammation that your body now has to clean up.
Atp takes up to 3 minutes to be ready so if you do high volume with little to no breaks you didnt give a chance for atp to accumulate and instead you rekt your shit for no reason.
Well the thing is if you do this often your bodies going to think youre a retard and it'll equip itself to prevent tears.
But you wont be getting bigger or stronger, it will just be like preemptive care.
I guess after a very very long time you will be safe enough doing this that your body will allow you to get stronger.
I personally got really big pecs never doing anything but flat bench.
Umm doing sets of 1-3 reps high intensity.
