Hey guys. Tomorrow I will start training with lower volume and high intensity after training with set progression and RIR for quite a while. I wasn't happy with the progress and felt like I was doing a lot of volume and wasn't getting much out of it. I just have some questions after watching Aj's video on is pull push legs setup.
I trained muscles like side delts and biceps with a high frequency of 4-5x before. For the big movements I want to lower the volume and focus on working really hard on these sets but I'm not sure if I should do something similar for these smaller muscles and start with something like 12 sets over 2-3 session and raise volume when it's needed.
Do you think doing an isolation exercise before a compound as a pre exhaust is always a good idea or just as a variation (maybe if you have trouble connecting to a muscle)? For example doing a leg extension on one leg day.
I really enjoy the videos on the site so far. Thanks AJ!
