Sticky Thread Sticky: Daily Workout - Challenges and Victories

In light of the extreme focus this board has in regards to the 'body beautiful' (and the frustration that results in people not 'getting results fast enough'), I thought I would create a sticky that changed the focus a little.... This is a thread for posters to use to recognise 'every day'...

5x8 rep range

Hi, I was wondering peoples opinions on working in 5x8 rep range for all sets with a 30 second rest period? A trainer recommended it to me as something different to try - I know not all trainers should be trusted though!
