I'm trying to figure something out. I've been doing a body split 5x5 routine and today's routine looked like this.
135x15 warm up, 245x5, 315x5, 315x5, 315x5, 225x5(gassed the f out)
245x5, 275x5, 275x5, 275x5, 315x5 (yeah, i was being a ***** about deads today and did 3 sets of 275 cause my back took forever to get going and i got too pumped in my lowerback to go heavy)
thaaaaan just 100 reps of single calf presses of 120 lbs. not in a row in 4 sets of 25.
Question is the volume for today's workout was disappointingly low but i feel so taxed obviously for doing heavy squats and semi heavy deads.
Does the use of heavy weight make up for lack of volume is my basic question. If anyone has a good 5x5 workout (pref. in a split) I'd love to get a copy.
