I have read the MAX-ot 100+ page pdf twice, so this is not an unresearched question...
My two questions are-
1. I am running up against where I can do say 80x7 or 85x5. This is find for set 1 but by the time I get to set 3 with the next step up (85) I cant make 4 anymore. I could do 85 then drop to 80, but the program says not to reduce your weight for muscle memory. So do I just do 3 or do I keep the reps higher with a lower but steady weight.
2. The program dictates 2-3 min rest. This works some days with the programs, but often I go well over the 40 min max when using these longer breaks. Ideas?
3. My job dictates that sometimes I am called away and really CANNOT make the gym that day (hotels with treadmill etc only) I try to find gyms closeby if I can but it is not always possible. The program says you cant make up a workout, but it seems stupid to not do chest tomorow if I am missing it today then move on... Maybe I took that statement in the reading the wrong way? I think he was looking to discourage not doing a workout, but sometimes there is no choice.
Thanks for feedback
