so is it cool to hit a couple high singles and then drop the weight and go for 20 or so like in some of your lifting videos? or forget the singles and straight to the high reps?

sure, check the MEBM article in performance blog section.. max effort beast m0de.. it goes over that, you can easily use 20's as a finisher 1-2x/week, works great.. you'll see the difference pretty soon after implementing them.

pC


sweet! then i'll join the club!

nice :)

the club will grow once more people start playing around with the heavy 20 rep stuff.

I just do half squats, not really sure why I like doing them, I guess it's the same as you just feels good afterwards.

By the way - one quick note:

I don't think it's smart to go with high reps for people with high blood pressure. I think that's what happens to me. Whenever I go 8+ reps I start to get dizzy and feel weird, and I think it's the blood pressure going up and up and up... that's not healthy or safe at all.

So for people with these kinds of issues, they should be aware of it. I wouldn't recommend 20 reps to people with high blood pressure.

you've got to "RELAX" (tm raptor/djoe).. i have/had high blood pressure issues and i'm fine, have to breathe right and stay loose.. blood pressure is more of an issue with high rep heavy lifts that have you gripping the bar non stop, like the high rep RDL etc. but squat/DL should be fine.

if you get dizzy after 8 reps then you're probably breathing wrong..

04/09/2011 275 x 22 (PR) half squat.. not really considering it a PR though, was too sloppy/ugly.. those 2 really ugly reps screwed me up, goal was 25 reps, should have gotten it.. bleh

i hit 275 x 21 much cleaner last time:

You seemed to always touch the pins with the left side of the bar... maybe you lean towards that leg since you plant LR? Like, you favor control on that leg and prefer (automatically) to "use" that leg more and lead the descent with it?

i've noticed when i pin squat i tend to lean left too...but i plant right left...but i'm left handed and left side dominant so i figure thats what it is...it's probably normal for most people me thinks

ya i'm not sure really.. for some reason im definitely getting that lean, but that's actually why i like pin squats, it allows me to see when my depth is uneven.. i hate hitting one pin before the other.. if you look at that mar 27 275x21 vid, it looks so much cleaner.. very good set compared to the set i uploaded today..

i'm LEFt-RIGHT and natural lefty so, dno.. definitely has to do with an imbalanced somewhere.

peace

agreed, hitting one pin before other makes you feel really off balance, and kinda 'forces' you to correct it
