Been trying out PHA (Peripheral Heart Action) training. I wasn't feeling it yesterday and didn't do the dynamic warm up I usually do but this exercise really got the sweat going. The basic principal is to work different parts of your body on back to back sets so it forces your heart to send blood further distances thus giving you a cardio work out. Seems to have worked pretty well.

I can actually DL more than 200lbs over my bench (1RM)
Same with squatting when I used to squat.

But I do see the same at the LA I go to. I see some big ass dudes up top and never see those dudes doing legs.

Im done going heavy on the bench.
I think we get more benefit of lighter weight, more reps.

Plus, way less risk of blowing something out

I'm the opposite and have the opposite thought.
I go light every 4-6 weeks and feel going heavy helps with cutting

I think you probably expend the same energy on a set of 4 at 405 as a set of 20 at 225, 405 just sounds more fun so that’s the direction I tend to train

Heavy weight training in the 5 rep range will get my heart rate up in the mid 170ís on big compound lifts as well, but super sets are great also

I was mostly just talking gym broís, main work out staples are bench and curls in the squat rack lol I used to workout like that when I was younger, I was blown away by how much total athleticism increased when I started hitting legs all the time and training everything evenly, I wish I would have done this when I was in grade school I would have been a complete unit in high school sports, but I new nothing of nutrition or working out and neither did my family

I have definitely noticed that. I've been going lately and it is getting my heart rate up and I'm breaking a sweat. I'm starting to transition to 2 full body PHA lifting days and 2-3 cardio (HIIT and sustained) days per week. I'm about to start a massive cut once I get back from vacation in a couple weeks.

Sounds like a solid plan, keep us updated on progress, when i get back into lifting from a brake I do 2-3 full body days as well itís a nice way to slip in but not overdo it and still hit everything

I kind of just jacked around at the gym today, did some squats dropping my pinky off the bar to help get my elbows further under the bar, with no shoes on to try flat footed instead of in squat shoes, it felt ok it was just 135 so basicly like doing air squats for me lol but i need some weight to get in the right position with the bar, my hip is kind of sore now though not sure what thats about, did some more light leg stuff, did some flat db press, worked up to a set with 115's I dont know why they have to keep the big ones on the floor I was more woried about throwing my back out getting them on my lap then pressing them lol, did a couple machines and hit 30 minutes of cardio if I can get someone to hand me one maybe ill try 135's or 145's for a few reps when im more healed up

Dude I say the same thing every time. Why are the heavy weights on the bottom shelf? I get nervous every time I approach 70 and above.

Hit some shoulders and bi’s 15min cardio, 90lb db’s on my heavy set of shoulder press, I’ve cut from 235 to 224 in about 2 weeks granted probably 5lbs of that was water weight from eating so badly before starting a diet

Just for shits checking heart rate between sets, so far on the heavier sets I’m at 145 bpm for a heavy set of 4, will be interesting to see when I drop down and rep it out for more
