    To do 4 sets of 12-15 reps, should we aim for an original weight that is not too taxing to preserve enough energy and stamina in our triceps to be able to complete sets at increasing weight, or should we get our heavier sets in first, and do less weight later to make sure we can complete those numbers? When I hit complete muscle fatigue, I assume I am done, but perhaps I should have taken it easier early to allow more reps later.

    Thanks for this entry…good stuff!

    I did this for the first time last night, (though I substituted inclined squeeze press for the inclined dumbbell flyes), and I can definitely say that I have never had a better chest workout.

    But my limiting factor was still my arms and shoulders. Doing the squeeze press probably didn’t help with that. Later this week, I’ll stick with flyes to see if that helps. Should flyes be done such that very little elbow bend happens through the entire motion? Seems like that would save the tricepts, but shoulders will still complain.

    One quick question. What is the science behind the 30-40 second intervals?
