Is it better to do say pyramids such as 2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2

or sets with higher reps such as 12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5

I like to mix it up Smile. Sometimes I do dips 2-4-6...10..2, when I get stronger I do 3-6-9-12-15...3, then 4-8-12-16-20-...4 and so on Very Happy. But I'm not huge fan of the second option, haven't tried it for a long time though.

So I guess what Im tryna to say is what is a better pyramid for overall advancement lower reps with same total 2-10-2 = 50

Or a higher rep with same overall total 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3 = 52

I still rather like the 2-4-6-..-..... pyramid, then you have to push yourself in the end, if u go max and then back to 1 you can easily do it, cause after u maxed then u got less strenght anyways so you aint training much if you dont have to push yourself to the limit.

So yeah Instead of walking down backwards... I flipped it like 3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11 and it was WAY!!! more intense... I like that routine... Going to stick with it more often and mix up grips


this below today 8-22-11 is what Ive done so far started early 30-45 sec rest between each set

3-4-5-6-7-8 = 33 over hand grip

3-4-5-6-7-8-7-6-5-4-3 = 58 over hand

3-4-5-6-7-6-5-4-3 = 43 over hand

5-6-7-8-9-10-9-8-7-6-5 = 80 mixed/alt grips

8-7-6-5-4-3 = 33 mixed grips

total pulls = 247 in about an hour give or take a few

20 dips...day isnt over yet

no push ups...day isnt over yet

today about 200 calf raises

plan to go on a 20 minute jog soon

last night 50 weighted squats

last night 45 weighted jumps

didnt think I would be able to get through the 5-10-5 but it was fairly simple...All dead hangers...plan to do more pullups through out the day... now just need to quit smoking cigarettes...YUCK!!!
