why not just lift really heavy with few reps but also less heavy for high reps so you can gain hypertrophy and strength at the same time

      pretty sure most elite powerlifters do volume work

        anyone that wants to build muscle must do volume-centric work. you cannot sustain a program that lifts heavy all the time and also hope to get big outside of PED users (who would get bigger regardless of what they do).

          Yes you can, you can hit a top submaximal single before moving onto your high volume work
          For example 200kg for a single then 5x5 at 150kg. You've both lifted heavy and performed volume.

                i would say "post body" but anyone that has read the retardation escaping your mouth knows you won't.

          even then, natties don't get strong off of just doing doubles and triples, volume is also good for work capacity

            What do you define as strong for an 80kg/181lb natty?

              type your lifts into symmetric strength, I would consider 70 pretty good.

    Boring but big is what you are looking for which in and of itself is popular.

    lifting heavy (+-5 Reps)
    lifting medium (+12 Reps)

    both will let you gain muscle at about the same rate, the former gives you strength but exhausts your body more. The latter doesn't.

    It's just too much work, I don't think an average body without PEDs can take it.

    Redpill me on top set backoff set

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      For example:
      Or one heavy top set, then back offs
      Week 1: 5 x 80%, 3 x 5 x 75%

      Week 2: 3 x 85%, 4 x 5 x 75%

      Week 3: 1-2 x 90%, 5 x 5 x 75%

      Then ditch the percentages and repeat with +5lbs each cycle. This an example of your heavy day only. E.g Monday heavy, then light squats on a Thursday.

    Been there, done that, was good for strength but not as good for hypertrophy due to coming into the volume work already a bit worn out. That said, there's no reason not to do things this way as long as your strength work doesn't lead to sandbagging on the volume work.

      for example, you do 3-4 sets of heavy triples, and you may find that during your 3-4 sets of volume work (6-10 rep work, say), your form and focus will be compromised.
