Anything more than 3 reps a set is cardio…
Sets x Reps x Weight in Pounds
Bench Press: 3 x 3 x 255
Weighted Pull Ups: 3 x 3 x 40
Same workout as Monday, just easier. Warm up on the bench went like this: 135 x 8, 225 x 4, 245 x 2, then I did my work sets.
I remember getting stuck on 225 for 5s just a few months ago at a similar bodyweight. Even though I haven’t gone higher than 3 reps a set since then, it’s now an easy warm up.
The longer I do this, the more I’m convinced that lower reps with moderate intensity is far more effective than “feeling the burn.”
15 minute workouts are nice, too.
