I am preparing to walk-on to play wide receiver on a DI-AA school . I have been using a college-level workout program, but I'm considering using the Pre-Season Mass Workout outlined on this site...
My question is, what should the training percentages be on this program? My old program used a percentage of a 1RM for the compound exercises every week that either increased or decreased over the course of the program. Percentages are often used in the articles written on the website... Why not in the programs?
For example, take week 1: The bench press will be performed 4x8. But on week 12, the rep scheme is 5-4-3-2. It wouldn't make sense to use the same weight for sets of 8 as sets of 2, and guessing the weight per the reps would not be as effective as percentages would. Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance, and thanks to 1R for the great articles on their website.
Also, what is the difference between the "Mass Workout" and the "Get Explosive" workout? With just a cursory glace, I can't seem to tell a difference.
