    Strength Training and 1-3 Reps

    Whenever I see someone recommend strength training to someone else in this section they just about always recommend 4-6 reps, or sometimes 5-8 reps, or some other combination of those reps. Ignoring the point that strength training is more about just rep ranges, how come 1-3 reps aren't included when talked about gaining strength? Are those not good reps for gaining strength? Or is this section just over ran by parrots who can't think on their own?

    Because near maximal training is hard on the CNS & can fuq you up good if you make an entire routine with it. It's better to have days every now & again with that few reps. I personally categorize it in "plateau breaking techniques" & not workout programs.

    But on the other hand there are programs like Mendler's 5/3/1, but it is not done with your actual #RM for those reps, so it's an entirely different approach.

    For example, chaos and pain style training is based on Waterbury style jumpsets using lots of sets of singles or triples. Usually 15x1 or 10x3 with rests of up to 1 minute. Maybe a smudge more for deadlifts.

    It's very time consuming but you can work with 85-90% of 1RM without problems. It not the same as "maxing every day".

    I prefer sets of 3. My body responds very well to it.
