Accommodating resistance exercise equipment mandy moore dating john krasinski
I have talked with Louie countless times, trained with Jim Wendler for about a year when I was powerlifting and both have said the same thing. Obviously this was before Jim's 5/3/1 ideas but if you don't work up to a weight you miss you won't know for sure if you are pushing a maximal load.I agree that there are times you wouldn't want to push to failure for a variety of reasons but aside from injuries or cns fatigue you should be going until you miss a weight.I'm currently lifting out of my garage and I have basic equipment such as a bar, dumbbells, bench and rack with plates but no bands or chains. One thing a lot of people don't do when they "train westside" is they miss the goal for the day.I do the westside program but I do not know what percentage to lift with on DE days without accommodating resistance. I will have to do some research if nobody knows before I find out but I think some articles were written by Louise or Dave Tate that mentions what percentages to use. In other words, the max effort day is designed to make you strain.
You might want to look up some stuff that Sam Byrd and Josh Bryant have been doing for CAT (compensatory acceleration training).
So, to answer your question, the percentages aren't as important as speed.
Just be sure you are able to move the bar at maximum speed and you'll be fine.
Not to split hairs, but when did you last talk to him?
At the powerlifting cert and more of his recent stuff, his recommendation for ME Day is hit a lift at 90%, maybe one more lift, and then set a record.
What that does is move your sticking point higher over time.
