Last time I touted the new-found pump from high rep training. Since I had such a good time with that training session I’ve been determined to explore this even further. I’ve been applying the high rep protocol to everything and loving it.
I knew that the always infamous leg day would be a unique challenge, but I was ready for something different and interesting. At 45 I’ve tried almost every type of hypertrophy training technique around: heavy duty, rest/pause, high volume, giant sets, heavy/light, high rep/low rep, and a few I’m sure I’m forgetting.
The high rep training, to my pleasant surprise, was an incredible reminder of how I trained and felt as a newbie. Fast pace, big pumps, and tons of blood flow. So, here is how leg day went down.
