PostSubject: strength and endurance difference?   Mon Feb 04, 2013 9:58 pm

Lately i have been doing alternating method, pull day and push day. On those days I work on different holds but i also do rep work. Lets take push ups, I'll do 3-5 sets in which i go to failure every time. I feel like i'm not making much progress though. Before i used to do 1 set for 5 different exercises, back to back, 10-15 reps, no rest between and then after the 5 sets i would rest and repeat. So what I am asking, if there is an objective answer for this:

Is it better to do smaller sets (10-15 reps rather than burn sets) for gaining reps? In the past i felt this might have been more helpful for me but is there an exact method to it?

Also, gaining more reps, is that strength or endurance?

What i want to do is an advanced movement such as a one armed push up but also want to build in endurance so any tips?

Thank you =]

Their are several different ways:

Grease the Groove: you do about 50% to 60% of your max throughout the day usually once
every hour

Reverse pyramids (or ladders): you start at a high rep (sometimes not that high) and work your way down like this: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 in my experience :30 rests works the best

pyramids: you start low then go high and work your way down like this: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 I don't have much experience with these

high rest: you pretty much 80% to 90% of your max with 4:00 or 5:00 rests

I am sure their are other methods out their you just need to experiment and always remember to increase reps
