thinkin about changing up my weight training, shud i keep the way it is or change it?

  1. thinkin about changing up my weight training, shud i keep the way it is or change it?


    I do this....

    Moderate reps with heavy weight = muscle hypertophy or muscle mass (8-12 reps x 12 sets)


    i was thinking about changing up my weight training to this....

    WEEKS 1-2 = High reps plus low weight = fast twitch muscle fiber or endurance gains (18-20 or 20-25 reps x 12 sets)
    WEEKS 2-4 = Low reps plus heavy weight = slow twitch muscle or strength gains (6-8 reps x 12 sets)
    WEEKS 5-6 = Moderate reps with heavy weight = muscle hypertophy or muscle mass (8-12 reps x 12 sets)
    (repeat)



    MY SPLIT

    back/arms
    chest/tris
    legs/shoulders

    1on/1off
    1on/1off
    1on/2off/ i do cardio on all off days & i pick 2 off days to do abs on 1 day & forearms on the other.




    im cutting right now, honestly its more like a cut/recomp.

    i want to work on endurance to help keep my training tight. i also thought that changing it up every 2 weeks wud help create sum muscle confusion to hopefully avoid a plateau & so that my progress has a constant elevation


    most likely will not follow this weight training plan once ive completed my cut & complete my goal @ ~5% BF & go back2 my normal weight training.


    shud i keep it the way it is, or change it to this new weight training plan? any suggestions?


  2. I had more success with my cut when I dropped the reps to the 6-8 range...It's good to switch it up a lot, but I think 2 weeks is too often, but if it's workin, do it. I consinstently got stronger on my cut staying in the 6-8 rep range for the majority of it. At first I was doin' 10-12.

  3. When cutting (as I am now) if I don't stick with heavy low reps I lose strength and feel I suffer a great loss of muscle.


    Normally do 6-8 reps with 10 reps to warm up.
    I feel it best to change up the exercises I do as opposed to the weight and reps for each muscle.

    Everyone is diffrent listen to your body and how it responds.
