What does depletion training looks like?
The last of four (4) feature reflection on semi-fasted/fasted training drawn from 5+ years. To end the week – it’s backs.
- Up to 9 exercises
- 5×5, 6×6, 7×7 (Adopted) German volume training.
- RPE scale of 6 to 10.
- Up to 1 Minute and little over for recuperation (connective tissues, psychology+physiology) in-between sets.
If anyone can do better, more power to them. Better yet – raise your own bar. Be yourself. Authenticate. Repeat.
NOTE: This is only an N=1 insight throughout five years (and ongoing) journalling condensed into just one (1) presentation. It is neither an immediate prescription nor for value comparisons benchmark.
