[QUOTE=0311]Whatever happened to just going in there and lifting some heavy fuking weight!? I grew pretty huge legs doing 3-5 reps..Why?..Think about all the warmups I was doing to get to what I wanted to lift.
Example: A2G Squats
135 x 12
135 x 10
185 x 8
225 x 5
275 x 3
295 x 1
315 x 1
335 x 5 (workset one)
and so on..
I cannot imagine why I grew off of that vs. doing 185 lbs for 3 sets of 10-12!
Just pick a number and grow..I mean go.
As the weight increases, the reps decrease..Ain't nothing Bill Starr or Mark Rippetoe says that'll make that fact null and void.
This is probably the bulk of how I do all my lifting. It always has been. Your body dosen't think, all it understands is stress.
Programs are good for the very reason of goal setting. You will push yourself to meet a goal and grow. However if you are disiplilned enough you can lift lilke 0311 just pointed out and grow just as well. Just go in there and smash some weights.
